Contacting your child's teacher during the shutdown

To ensure proper social distancing we have needed to put in place some new arrangements for how parents and carers communicate with school staff.  At this time parents and carers are not allowed to enter the school buildings or playground, and school staff are not available for discussions in person.  You can contact the school office by telephone or by email, and ask for a message to be passed to a teacher or other staff member.

Parents can also contact their child's class teacher by email:

FAQs

I'm having problems accessing the home learning arrangements from the school - what should I do?

There is lots of advice on our home learning page, including a help video.  If you are unable to access SeeSaw there are also home learning activities, planned by our teachers, that you can access directly from our website.  If you are still having difficulties please do email your child's teacher.

Is the government giving laptops to children during the shutdown?

The government announced that it was launching a scheme to help some children to access online learning, who don't currently have home-access to a computer.  The details haven't been released yet, but for primary aged children it is likely that this will be limited to children who have a social worker.

Will school be re-opening before the summer?

The government has said that schools won't be re-opening until the scientific advice says it is safe to do so.  At this stage it's not clear when this will be.

Which children are allowed to keep coming to school?

Schools closed on the 20th March for most children, but the government asked schools to stay open, if possible, for the children of parents carrying out vital work in the national effort against CoVid19, and for some children with particular vulnerabilities.  However the government said that even for these children, where it is possible for them to be safely looked after at home they should be.  For this reason we are only able to offer emergency places to a limited number of children whose parents work in nationally critical roles, and who cannot provide any other childcare - and to some children with particular vulnerabilities.  For more information please see our emergency school pages.
