Assembly

Please note that PE is usually on a Friday afternoon, however in term 3 the children will go swimming on a Monday morning instead.

From term 4 onwards  pupils MUST attend school in their school PE Kit instead of their usual uniform on Friday.

Self-isolation Learning Packs

Should your child need to isolate due to a positive Lateral Flow Test (LFT) or PCR test please download their home learning pack for them to complete. Please note that if they are unwell with Covid they are not expected to complete school work, but if they remain asymptomatic it is strongly advised that they complete this work to avoid unnecessary disruption to their learning.

Homework & Online Learning Resources

In the event of a further school or class closure, all children will work from home with access to their learning through Teams. (To ensure that all the children know how to use the Teams platform, the children will practice the use of this system at least once a week by accessing their Science learning through this platform using the school's computers.)

 

Further home learning is unlikely to be needed, however the following free resources remain available.
