Coming to School

Today is a school day. School is important and is a place where we come to learn, have fun and see our friends. When I am at school, my family are busy too. We have a special sequence for saying 'goodbye'.

It's great to all meet up again at the end of the day and share what we have done.

Remote Home Learning Offers:

As you may be aware, in the event that your child is unable to attend school due to COVID-19 restrictions, schools are required to provide a remote learning offer. Our offer outlined below is designed to cover a number of scenarios including if the whole class is isolating or just a smaller number of children, but we do appreciate that not every set of circumstances may be covered. As we have shared since March 2020: Just do what you can, when you can. However, if the needs of your child cannot be met through the provision we have outlined, please make contact with your child’s class teacher to discuss your concerns. Please click on the relevant Key Stage document to access the remote learning offer for your child/ren.
