Partial School Closure
We are currently open for children of key workers, critical to the national fight against corona virus, pupils with and EHCP and the most vulnerable pupils in our school community.
In addition, following Government guidelines, from 1st June we are partially open for YR, Y1 and Y6 pupils where parents have engaged in the school's communications regarding this. For more information please contact the school office email@example.com or called 01628 662913 between 8.30am and 3.30pm.
Children who do not fall into one of these categories are required to remain at home. We have produced work for these children to continue their learning at home, and there are lots of resources gathered here for activities to support home learning.
We have also gathered some links and resources here to support families through this difficult time, whether in the form of mental health support, financial support or general wellbeing.
We are here working busily behind the scenes both at school and at home so please do get in touch if you have any queries. For general queries please contact the office on firstname.lastname@example.org. For queries about learning please email email@example.com.
