School Closed - From Monday 23rd March 2020

Dear Parents and Carers 

I hope that you have all had an opportunity to look through the extensive work packs which have been prepared for your child. As you will see from the activities there is lots of choice for your child to choose from. Please try and work out a structured timetable each day, as this will be easier for your child if they can develop a routine. 

We will be providing any updates on the website, so please check in from time to time. We are also hoping to upload some messages from staff to keep in touch with the children. 

As it is unclear how long the school closure will be for, we may also be uploading more links to learning on the website too. 

We would like to thank everyone for their words of support and thanks during this difficult time.
