Our home-learning policy was developed through a working party which comprised of parents, teachers and governors and has been recently reviewed and updated by a new working party. The main aim of the policy is to help our children have a zest for learning which lasts a lifetime!
The full policy is available to view on our policies page.
Home learning during the school closure period
During this time of closure due to coronavirus, the children will be able to access daily lessons and activities, during term time, set by their class teacher, using Google classroom. These lessons will contain a range of activities and children can receive individual feedback, where appropriate, to help them to continue to make good progress.
As a supplement to Google classroom, we will aim to keep this website page regularly updated with online resources and suggested activities to help support parents and carers.
The Parent Hub contains hundreds of different activities across all curriculum areas.
