Putting Children First

Covid-19 Information to parents and 'Home Learning' resources

March 2021- Year Group Bubble Closures Nursery, Reception & Year 2


Unfortunately we have had to close the Nursery, Reception & Year 2 bubbles due to confirmed cases of COVID19.


We have had to close three year groups in the school, however all the cases we currently have come from 1 family.


Self isolation period: 20/03/21 - 29/03/21. This means pupils will return on Tuesday 30/03/2021.


Isolation Work

Work for your child to do during the 10 day isolation period will be put onto Purple Mash later today. The same system used for accessing work during the lockdown will be used again. If you do not have a device to access this work, please contact the school and we can arrange for an iPad to be loaned to you.


If you have children in other years groups, they can still attend school, however please do not bring isolating pupils onto school grounds.



If your child is entitled to benefit related free school meals we will be sending a Tesco voucher to cover the isolation period.

Collection Times- Tuesday 9th March 2021 Onwards

Mental Health Awareness Week 2020

Below are the home learning sheets dated Monday 18th May. Children can work on the tasks set out on these sheets for two weeks.


Please remember that half term is from Monday 25th May until Friday 29th May. Teachers will not be setting work on Purple Mash or marking work completed during this time.

It is also important for pupils to take a break from academic learning at home. Try out some more practical projects at home or learn a new skill and take a well earned break from your home learning tasks.


These home learning sheets can be used for the week after half term and a new sheet will be uploaded on Monday 8th June.

It would be great if you could send in some videos of you singing the song at home.

Monster Phoncis have also decided to continue to offer all of our material for free until schools re-open.
