How the school will use the Covid19 catch-up premium
In the event of children needing to isolate due to confirmed cases within school or a local outbreak, we will continue to place lessons and resources on the Home Learning page to ensure pupils can continue education during an isolation period.
You will need a password to access these resources. This has been issued to parents already.
If you need a reminder, please contact the school office. We can also supply forgotten passwords for other online resources.

Coronavirus Explained for Children
Axel Scheffler (illustrator of the Gruffalo) has illustrated a digital book for primary school age children, free for anyone to read on screen or print out, about the coronavirus and the measures taken to control it. Published by Nosy Crow, and written by staff within the company, the book has had expert input: Professor Graham Medley of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine acted as a consultant, and the company also had advice from two head teachers and a child psychologist.
The book answers key questions in simple language appropriate for 5 to 9 year olds:
• What is the coronavirus?
• How do you catch the coronavirus?
• What happens if you catch the coronavirus?
• Why are people worried about catching the coronavirus?
• Is there a cure for the coronavirus?
• Why are some places we normally go to closed?
• What can I do to help?
• What’s going to happen next?
