This page has been adapted to provide links to additional activities in the event that school has been required to close due to national measures to protect against the spread of Coronavirus.
For each day of any planned closure, we have set three tasks, English, Maths and topic, which practise basic skills. We also advise that children read between 10-15 minutes each day. If you require additional tasks, please follow the link for your child's class on the panel to the right where you will find further activities to download and Internet links to further activities. It is vital to your child's continued progress that they continue to follow the work we set at home.
Some of the resources we are now having to use are online. For sites which school have provided logins, children should only be in contact with other pupils from our school where interaction is possible. Below are some links for parents with updated advice for parents to keep their children safe online.

The Oak Academy
What is the Oak National Academy?
From today, Monday 20 April, parents can access 180 lessons a week for every year group from Reception through to year 10, through a new online platform, Oak National Academy. The enterprise which has been set up by teachers and is funded by the Department of Education, will provide video lessons for students, with each lesson coming with a corresponding quiz and worksheet. According to the Ambition Institute, each lesson will last one hour and the portal will provide the equivalent of three hours of lessons a day for primary students and four hours for secondary. Announcing the launch yesterday, Gavin Williamson said: ‘Tomorrow many children should be going to school for the first time after a two week break. But these are not normal times and we’re asking you to stay at home. Thank you for all the sacrifices that you’ve had to make.
How to access the Oak National Academy resources
To access the Oak National Academy resources, head along to their official website, where resources went live this morning. From here, you can view lessons by subject and level, or you can follow their planned weekly schedule.
