Home Learning Resources

Welcome to our page for home learning resources and information.

We appreciate your support during these unusual circumstances, on this page we will provide links and information for you to use at home with your children. Before you start your learning at home, please remember that this is a stressful time for families - before your children are ready to learn they need to feel safe, secure and happy and that should take priority over any school work you may choose to do.

There is an article you can download below, Advice for Parents & Carers, published by the Division of Educational and Child Psychology (DECP) British Psychological Society (BPS). The article contains common sense, practical advice about helping your children through this situation. We hope you find it helpful.

Talking to us

All classes have a direct link to their class teacher through Tapestry (Reception) and Years 1-6 through Class Dojo.

Teachers will be setting work and communicating with you regularly. Please remember that they are also providing school provision for key workers and will not be responding to messages outside of core working hours.

We ask that you are polite and respectful to our staff at all times, any misuse of any communication channels will mean that these channels are removed.

If you are having problems communicating with your class teacher via either Class Dojo or Tapestry you can email them directly using the email addresses below.
