Home Learning

Home Learning will continue in 2 week blocks. We believe it is vital that your children still continue to educate even whilst they are not at school.

A Home Learning page has been set up where you can find everything that has been sent home, as well as resources to help pupils learn.

Emergency Contact Numbers

During school closure it is absolutely vital the the school holds a minimum of 2 emergency contact numbers for every pupil on roll.

Please ensure that the school office have up to date information as we will be making contact with every pupil during school closure. Where we cannot make contact we may need to complete a home visit.

Online Safety

During this period of school closure, pupils will be engaging in online learning more than normal and are likely to spend longer periods of time on social media.

For pupils in key stage 2 who are accessing the Google classroom school have initiated E-Safe - a tool to monitor and detect inappropriate online activity. Leaders in school will receive an alert should concerns arise. Parents will be contacted in these circumstances.

Please try and monitor, as much as possible, what your children are accessing online and talk to them about how they can stay safe. Here is a useful link for parents: www.internetmatters.org

Please remember to use safeguarding page on the school website.

Parents and pupils can continue to report any safeguarding concerns directly to the Designated Safeguarding Leads (DSL). Simply contact the school office on 01384 816765 and request to speak to a DSL.
