We will ensure that all children are nurtured, challenged and inspired so that they achieve the best outcomes during their time at our school and contribute positively to society.

Remote Learning - Year 1

Miss Kirby, Miss Chard, Miss Robson and Mrs Brown are still looking after your children during this lock-down. Each week, like the previous lock-down, they will contact you to check that everything is going well and to see if there is anything else we can do to help. Furthermore, they will be available through Google Classroom marking the children's work and answering questions. 

If children are self-isolating, there is an expectation that children still complete work daily following the timetable of their class and return work through Google Classroom, so that the teacher can give summary feedback about areas for improvement. 

If the year group bubble has to close, there is an expectation that children will move to remote learning and continue to follow the timetable.

Below is the remote learning timetable:

Daily tasks for reading, writing and math are added alongside a weekly range of broad and balanced foundation subjects.
