If you are eligible and have received a text or email message from school with your digital eVoucher cheque, please follow these steps to order your supermarket eVoucher:
Last week paper home learning packs were sent home with all children. Those who weren't in school have had them delivered by school staff or the Royal Mail. As we do not know how long school will be closed for currently, we will continue to update the website with links to useful websites/apps and other home learning.
Dear Parents and Carers,
We hope that you have found the home learning packs given out last week useful in getting started with home learning. We are regularly adding new resources and links to our website to support in continued home learning. Today, I wanted to share with you some specific resources for Mathematics.
In school, we follow 'White Rose Maths' and they have started publishing resources for parents on their website:
With the closure of schools, we still want you to know that plans for the residential are still to go ahead. We are keeping in constant contact with organisations that oversee Outdoor Education in the UK and they all expect residential experiences booked within the UK to be able to go ahead later this summer in June and July.
We are therefore continuing with all plans as they were initially set out by your school organiser unless informed otherwise by the government.
Dear Parents and Carers
We are living through historic and unprecedented events. For schools to be closing for an unspecified period of time would have been unimaginable just a few weeks ago. Our number priority has been and will remain to be the safety and security of our pupils. We do however, understand the need for some schools to remain open in order for key personnel to ensure the safety of the nation and to keep the country functioning.
Unfortunately, school has had to close due to government advice about the Coronavirus outbreak. The reason the government has issued this advice is to try and halt the spread of the virus.
Two of our schools will remain open for vulnerable children and children of key workers. More information about these categories can be found here. If you have not done so already, and you/your child falls into one of these categories and you would like to access the provision, please complete this form and then contact the school using the email below.
Parents: Please complete the survey here to request a daily packed lunch as part of the Free School Meals service (if you are eligible).
As of the 20th March 2020, we are asking that you complete this as soon as possible. Then, from the week commencing Monday 23rd March, we will re-launch the survey on a weekly basis to enable eligible families to join the scheme or leave the scheme as needed throughout the period of school closure.
Thank you for your ongoing support at this difficult time.
