Lockdown

During the current national lockdown school is only able to open to identified vulnerable pupils and children of critical workers (as identified by the Government).  For pupils remaining at home we are legally required to provide access to remote learning resources.  This has been done through Zoom and work has been emailed to everyone.  All pupils on roll have access to this learning platform.  Our remote learning policy outlines how children will access their education remotely during this period.

The DfE have outlined that primary aged pupils, as a minimum, should have access to work that they would receive in school and should be expected to devote 3 hours per day as a minimum to home learning.  Where pupils are found not to be engaging with home learning we are required to work with parents to resolve any issues.

Should you experience any problems then please do not hesitate to contact the school office in the first instance.
