This Week calendar update coming soon...

Parent Info / Summer Holiday support

Over the summer holidays we will keep the Home Learning page live on our website, so you can access links and past planning as you wish. Teams will remain online however all communications will be muted as contributions will not be monitored during the summer holidays.

To support children in their transition back to school, teachers will be contacting each child in their class by telephone during the last two weeks of August. You will receive an email with a date and a morning or afternoon time slot.

If your child is in Year 1 to Year 6 and you feel they would benefit from seeing their new classroom before the first day of term, please email the Office to make an appointment for the afternoon of Tuesday 1st September (our first INSET day).

There will be a video of each classroom sent out prior to the start of term and you will find KS1 and KS2 Transition Booklets on the Whole School Return page of the Parent Information section of the school website, with images of the whole school and staff team. We hope this will reassure children and families before the return in September.

Below are some learning activities that we hope your children will find useful.
