*Coronavirus Update*


We hope you are safe and well and enjoying the extra time with your families. We miss you very much and look forward to having you back in school when it is safe to do so.


It is very important to continue with learning at home as best as possible during this time. Each child has been allocated a home learning booklet which includes a range of activities to complete. Please contact the school, if you did not receive this booklet.


If you have any questions or concerns about home learning please contact the school, or you can contact Miss McQueen and Mrs Woodall directly by emailing 


Below is the "Coronavirus Home Learning" page where daily learning will be uploaded from the 20th April 2020. The Helpful Learning Links page has websites and uploads to support your child's home learning.


We have also opened a "Home Learning Gallery" to share children's amazing home learning with their friends. If you have any learning you'd like to share, please email the pictures to .
