Coronavirus Updates

The school is now closed until further notice

We are open to some vulnerable children and children of key workers. The government advice is to only use this as a last resort for childcare. We all need to work together to stop the spread of this virus, so we need to limit social contact even in school as much as possible. Please contact the school office if you have any questions. 

Updates to services:

Year 4 Braeside Trip has been postponed until September 30th. Please continue with any payment plans

Supporting Families

These are challenging times and child absence can put a further financial strain on families. If you should want further support with food to help with meal times at home, please do not hesitate to contact the school as we can offer referrals to the local food bank.  

Home learning

Please see class pages for weekly updates, or email your child's year group email address. Teachers will send ideas and activities out via Purple Mash, emails and updates on the class pages. All children should now have a home learning pack too. 

There are some activity booklets that you can download here, although please note that they are quite large to print out:
