Primary Home Learning

Although some children have returned to school, many of our children are now learning and revising remotely rather than in the school building – but do not worry! We do not expect you to teach your child. When school resumes, we will assess all the children and plan our next sequence of lessons to fill gaps. Use this time to enjoy your children’s company, to spend time together, to talk, to laugh together. This is more important than anything.

Please find below some information about how we are communicating with parents, carers and children, and what work has been set during school closure.
