A Message From The Headteacher
Just a brief newsletter this week. It's been quiet here, with only the children of key workers here, but we have had fun. We've been following the Joe Wicks workouts, playing in the sunshine and sticking to all the protocols around distancing and not sharing equipment. Surfaces are getting cleaned regularly and all door handles are wiped with bleach solution twice daily. We will continue to offer the provision for key worker children for as long as it is needed, including over school holidays.
Most of you are isolating at home and hopefully exploring the links that have been sent out and working through the learning packs that you have been given. Please look on the school website under the classes section. When you scroll all the way down the page you'll find guidance and templates that you may find helpful. I think it's helpful to bear in mind that learning from home is very different from learning at school. It can be more intense, so a timetable that allows for this and which will be different from a regular school day is a good idea.
There will be someone in the school office every day, if you have any questions or worries, whether about home learning or anything else, please feel free to contact us by email or phone, even if you just want someone to talk things through with. We are here to support you.
"After rain there is sunshine, and it will be nice again because we live in paradise and we should be able to appreciate it"

How can I help to slow the spread of the virus?
Stay at home to stop coronavirus spreading
You should only leave the house for 1 of 4 reasons:
- shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
- one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
- any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
- travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home.
