Your local health visitors and school nurses are here to offer you any support you may need around feeling low, anxious or depressed. We are still visiting you and your family at home during this time. You can contact us on:

Due to the timing of the announcement of school closures last night, remote learning will start from tomorrow, Wednesday 6th January. This is to enable teachers to adapt existing planning to ensure a high quality remote learning experience for all children. As previously, weekly plans will be posted both on the website and on Google Classroom with the specific information for each lesson posted daily in the classroom. For today, we would encourage the children to read for pleasure, access Times Table Rockstars and pursue their own interests while they process the change in their routine.
Thank you for your on-going support.
