Remote Learning and Updates for Return

We are excited to let you know that we will be welcoming all children back to school on Monday 8th March.

You should be receiving an email to let you know this information.  The School staff are working hard to prepare the school for the children, ensuring that all our health and safety protocols are in place and updated where necessary.  More details will be sent nearer to the time of return.  In the most part, school will operate almost exactly as it did before we entered lockdown.  Until we return in person, lockdown learning will continue for all pupils on Seesaw.

Due to the national lockdown, we have now moved to online learning except for vulnerable children and children of key workers.  Those children can access our critical care provision in school.

Forms, letters and policies related to COVID-19

All forms or letters related to COVID-19 will be saved in the COVID-19 section of the website.

How to access remote learning

All remote learning will take place on Seesaw - please visit our remote learning page for details on how remote learning will work this term and our remote learning policy

Class Zooms

All classes have two zooms a week and the timetable can be found on the Zoom Timetable page. We have updated our Zoom Code of Conduct  for parents and pupils so please ensure you have read this before your child's class zoom. Our risk assessment is also available on the timetable page.  Should we need to change a time, you will be informed via Seesaw in advance.
