COVID-19 and Home Learning
In these unprecedented times where the vast majority of our children are not in school every day and are, instead, being educated and cared for at home, we aim to provide as much support as we possibly can to help our children's time at home run as smoothly as possible. The 'Learning' tab on our website's menu leads you to a page for each year group which will provide a variety of activities and suggestions of things your child could do at home. These suggestions can be used alongside the Learning Packs that our children brought home with them last week as well as any of Activity Passport activities which can be completed at home. We will use this page to post any updates or information that we think is important to our families during this time.
