Further Coronavirus closure information

There is a lot of information being presented on social media and the news that can sometimes feel overwhelming for us all.

We will try to sift through some of the information so that the important bits are highlighted and give parents and children some guidance. 

Children will continue to find activities for home learning in their year group pages and on the online resource tab. Also continue to follow the Friends Facebook page for updates.

Free school meal vouchers have now been emailed out to eligible families. Please do check your emails for the vouchers which can be redeemed at Asda.
