Noticeboard

We welcome back some our children as part of the governments’s phased return to school. We miss the rest of you and hope to see you all soon. Remember to check your class webpage for learning grids and weekly newsletters to help you to feel part of our school family.

SEND

Visit the SEND section of our school website if you have a child with additional needs and would like more information about how to support your child and your family.

Online Safety guidance

It is important that we are all closely monitoring our children’s online activity. Many of our children are accessing websites during the CV19 crisis. Please follow this link to read the Government’s guidance and help keep your child safe online uk/governmentonline_safety_in_school.pdf. Please be aware of this guidance when you access any website listed below. Best practice is for a parent/carer to open the website page and check the content before children. Please download our facebook story videos rather than let your child access facebook directly. The recommended age for a facebook account is 13 years old.
