Wider Opening Covid 19 Arrangements

When should my child return to school?

Further to Government information and previous letters, you will be aware that school will reopen to all pupils on 8 March.  

We have a Risk Assessment in place which we adhere to and has been updated to cover our wider opening of school following the National Lockdown.  Wider Opening Risk Assessment

Online blended Learning

Following the return to school for all pupils from 8th March our curriculum to support pupils return to on site learning will be in place. We will still 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 a class bubble closure 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. Please do this the day before if possible.
