Closure Information

In light of the Government’s announcement that all schools are to close for the foreseeable future, please find information below about how to support your child’s learning at home.

Alongside this letter you will find a printed resource pack with activities for your child to complete on a daily basis. We have created a timetable to help you organise each day. Once the packs have been completed, all other work will be set online.

Try to keep to a school routine, encourage your children to get up and be ready for learning at 9.00am. Use the suggested timetable as a guide to structure your day. Try to take breaks at the school times too – so their working pattern remains the same.

We have issued pupils with their logins for google classroom, purple mash, active learn primary and times tables rockstars. Each child has a google email account which can only be used to contact their class teacher.

Teachers will set further work on google classroom for your child as well as on the other platforms for when they complete the printed packs.

If you or your child need support with any of the work please email your child’s class teacher. All of the login and email addresses are below.

You should complete all the work assigned to you where you are physically able to do so.
