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.
Wiltshire Libraries will run linked challenges and activities via individual library Facebook pages throughout the summer. They will also continue to run an online programme of rhyme times, story times, bedtime stories and online author events on our Facebook pages- we are @AmesburyLib and @TidworthLibrary. Summer Library Reading Information has been emailed to parents/carers.

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.
Please go to our ‘Our School’ ‘Safeguarding’ page for CV19 Safeguarding information
