Message from Head Teacher and Chair of Governors

Dear Parents and Carers,

As a school we are very conscious that these are unprecedented times and the well-being of your family is very important to us all.

To help us to ensure this, it is important that we keep communicating with you as we no longer have this opportunity as you drop the children off each day.

We are aware that for some of you the request to make daily contact has caused some anxiety and we wanted to explain why we are asking for this contact.

We do appreciate that some of you are trying to home school more than one child and complete your own work. This is a huge challenge.

Why do we need this information?

All schools are expected by the government to ensure the safety and well-being of all children and to keep track of each child’s online learning and ensure their progress. Just as when school is open, we have to have evidence that this process is happening.

In normal circumstances the school needs to be informed if your child is going to be absent- this is the same for remote learning.

If for any reason your child is going to be unable to access their remote learning then please let us know.

This can either be through messaging the class teacher or phoning the school and pressing option 1.

We can then inform the class teacher and know that everyone is safe and well or if you need help and support we can look at ways in which we can do this.

Thank you for all your support .

Mr Flint                    Val Moore
