EMERGENCY HOME LEARNING

Due to the emergency closure of the school, please access home learning below for your child's phase of the school. There are activities to download and complete, ideas for fun and physical activities, websites to explore and app games to complete every day. There are no expectations of how much or what should be done. It is important that the children are relaxed and want to engage.

 

As children are accessing more online content during this time, please see our Online Safety page if you need any advice on how to manage internet safety and support your child to understand how to keep safe.

If you need support to manage your child's (or your own) mental health, please access our Pastoral Care page for advice and agencies to contact.

There are also the current apps that your child can access at home to support their learning. The children should have usernames and passwords in their home-school diary.
