RESOURCES FOR PARENTS DURING SELF-ISOLATION

We have sent home resources for parents to use while the school is closed – please check this page regularly for updates.

If you have not collected your pack yet we would ask that you do not go against the government advice to stay at home to collect it. Please contact the school office and we will try to arrange a way to get this to you if you want it. It is not essential – there are other resources available online.

Here are  some ideas – you don’t need to use them all, give them a go and see what works best for you.
