School Update 4th May

Dear Parents and Carers


You may have read in the news about 'Oak Academy'. This is an online learning platform developed by teachers with live lessons. We have put a link on our learning links page which you can access below.


We are new becoming more familiar with the different learning platforms available to help us at home. Everyone should have received their link to 'Sum Dog' and Year 1 and 2 should have received their link to 'TT Rockstars'.  Please look for these emails with log in details in your inbox.


Everyone should have received at least one email from your child's year group and at least one telephone call. Please look out for these and engage with us. There are still a handful of children who we haven't heard from. Please make sure you contact us in some way ASAP, if you haven't done so already.. We have had lots of positive feedback to all our methods of communication and the teachers love talking to you. The advice for blogging has been updated on latest news and on learning links. Please look at it and follow it. We love seeing all your uploads.


There is a VE day section on our learning links for this Friday. If you are currently accessing our provision, you should have received an email about provision on VE day. Please respond to Mrs Palmer as soon as possible if you would like provision on this day. We look forward to seeing all your VE pictures.


We have had a lot of interest in both the maternity cover and the Year 2 teaching provision. I have made 48 telephone calls to prospective candidates to date and the closing day is next week. As soon as we have appointed, I will let you know.


I am sorry about the slip with our INSET day-thank you to the eagle eyed parents who helped me out and reminded me it is a Thursday start back. This is obviously assuming we will be back to normal. The 3rd September is our official start of term date, so please keep checking back for what this will look like for your child.


With children using the internet more and more, I have been asked to share two updated advice sites for parents and carers. Please click on the websites below to find out more;


I have also put lots more links to online safety from different organisations on our online safety page here;


We hope you are all keeping well. We look forward to learning of the day when we can open for more pupils again. In the meantime stay safe.


Best wishes


Mrs Riches
