Welcome to our school website. We hope you find all the information you are looking for.

Home Learning Zone

In September 2020, all our classes returned to full-time education following the Covid-19 closure in March. Although we hope that the majority of our children will now have an uninterrupted experience, there is the possibility that an individual child, a class bubble, or indeed the whole school, will need to self-isolate for a period of time. We have therefore put in place a plan for remote learning so that all children can continue with their education. This meets the expectations set out in the DfE guidance ‘Remote Education Support’

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/remote-education-during-coronavirus-covid-19

If a child does not have access to a computer/laptop and/or the internet, the school will do all it can to support children and will provide paper packs of learning. Where funding can be accessed, remote devices (eg, laptops) and/or 4G connections will be sought, particularly for disadvantaged children.  Parents will be reminded to make the school aware of any barriers to accessing remote learning. Paper copies will still be available.

We have created this page for any pupils who are self-isolating at home.  Below are a range of several resources that can be used via smartphones, tablets and laptops in addition to the work allocated via Class Dojo.

Please click the links to be taken to the correct pages. 

Please check our Class Dojo for work that has been allocated by your child's class teacher.
