Online blended Learning

We continue to use Tapestry and Seesaw weekly to help pupils practise key skills that link to the lesson we will have taught. The activities will link to our basic skills in Literacy, Mathematics or wider curriculum subjects linked to our termly topic theme. In the case of any attendance restrictions due to a positive case confirmed of a pupil or member of staff with covid 19 remote learning will commence from Day 1 of the isolating period.  Our arrangements for remote education are available here.  Please contact your child's teacher for any support or if you have any difficulty accessing the materials.

School Office

The school office is closed with the exception of signing in medication. Class staff may be unable to deal with individual queries in person. If you have any messages to pass onto your child’s class teacher, please telephone or email the office or use your class email / or contact on SeeSaw. Please do this the day before if possible.
