School continues to be closed. How are we doing?

Dear Parents,

As you have probably heard, the government has announced that schools will be closed for another three weeks. This will obviously bring mixed feelings, for many of you, including your children.  We want to help in any way we can, so please do contact your teacher directly or myself through the school email address:, and we will get back to you via phone or email, as soon as we can with an answer.  This can be about anything from your child’s well-being, education or your own financial concerns or health.  We may not be able to help directly, but we have a list of contacts that can offer help, which we can signpost you to.  Please do get in touch.


How are we doing?

Over the past two weeks, the teaching staff and I, have been reviewing the work and support we have offered to you so far, and how we can continue to support you in the future.  Please can you follow the link below and complete the survey monkey which will help us, to help you more in the next three weeks. This will only take two minutes and will enable us to tailor your child’s learning to their needs. If you have two children in the school, and they have different experiences, please fill in the survey twice.  Thank you in advance for filling this in.


Children’s school work

Work will be sent out in the normal way, through your email address, and your teacher will be available through the normal school hours from Monday 20th April.  Please do send in photos of what your child has been up to so we can share them on the school website, Twitter or through Mr Bunting’s assembly on a Friday, with your permission.  We do all love hearing about what you have been up to.


Improving communication further

In-addition, we are continuing to look at other ways to communicate with and your children, so although we can't meet face to face with you, we can meet virtually.  We hope to get this information out to you by the end of next week with a more child-friendly portal which will help your child/children to be more in touch with their teacher more easily.  So do look out for this information.


NHS advice

Finally, I have attached a document from the NHS which is explains when you should contact the NHS emergency.  There has been a worry that parents are leaving it too late to contact 999, so they have brought out this flier to help with this.


Have a lovely final weekend and I look forward to hear what you have been up to from the teachers.
