January 2021 Lockdown 3
Wednesday 13th January 2021 – we have a confirmed case of Covid 19 in school. We have taken all the necessary actions Public Health England have asked us to do to make sure everyone stays safe. Click on the link below to read more about these actions and about how to make sure you and your family stay safe and well.
We are so sorry to say that school will be closed from Tuesday 5th January 2021 for most children due to the national lockdown.
If you are a critical worker you will be offered a school place for your children on the days you are at work. If you think you may be on the critical worker list and need a school place please contact the school office. Places are limited but we are doing our best to support you. You may also hear directly from Sam, our child and family support worker, about school places.
Please carry on wearing a face covering if you bring your child to school and make sure you social distance. The new Covid strain spreads much more quickly and we want to keep everyone safe and well.
If your child is learning at home please go to their class page where you will find links to work in many different subjects. The Government expects primary aged children to do 3 hours work on school days – if your children are very young they may not manage to do this but it’s important to have a routine and make sure your child logs on every day.
If you are struggling to find this work or to help your child with any parts of it please contact your child’s class teacher and they will be able to help.
If your child is struggling without the routine of school or you are worried about their emotional well-being, have a look at our “support for families” page for some good ideas to keep them feeling strong and help them to make right choices. There is also help and advice on the Child Line website.
Please talk to your child about keeping safe online. The link below has lots of useful information for children of all ages.
Thank you for all your support in such difficult times. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing everyone back in school safe and well as soon as possible.
