Due to the unique times we are all facing, we have developed Home Learning activities for you to complete with your child at home. This information will also be circulated via SchoolPing.

We have got workbooks, pencils, etc. that we can send home with your child in the event of full closure, alternatively, you can collect these from the School Office from Friday.

Click on the image below to be directed to a copy of Daily Timetable, which you could use and adapt. We are creative with our planning; therefore, this is just a guide. PLEASE NOTE, this is only a guide for those who would like it and certainly not what we are expecting you to do!
