Dear Families, 

We will update this page as regularly as we can (we are aiming for every two weeks after the Easter Holidays).  However, it's important to remember that you cannot replicate school at home.  This is a time of national emergency, and your priority must be the well-being of your family - and it will be the same for our teachers. Your children may be anxious and worried, and what they need most of all is for you to create a home environment that is safe, where they are loved and cared for in an uncertain time.  


All of the work set will focus on revision and learning your children should be able to practice independently, and we recommend that you create a routine where you do a little bit of school work every day.  We know you will have other priorities - your own work, and caring for your family and all that comes with it.  We ask that you read with your kids, that you snuggle together and share stories and movies.  That you play together and get outside for fresh air in a safe way, let them help with daily chores, cook with them too. Some days you will do more school work and some days less, but please try to read every day.  


What is most important during this time is that you and your family look after each other.  Schools are closed, the learning of the National Curriculum is paused.  Your children won't fall behind because the whole world has been affected in a similar way and I promise you we will help them get back on track once this is over.     

With all that in mind, listed below is a plethora of resources for you to explore with your children to help with their learning.  

We use a number of subscription services to enrich and extend children's education, and those links can be found here

We have also compiled this big list of free resources that you can access at home in order to support your child's further learning.

While we are recommending these pages, channels and resources, we do not monitor them on a regular basis and therefore cannot guarantee what content is available on them - it is always the responsibility of the primary care giver to monitor children's use of the internet.

When working online, children will need adult supervision.  You would not let your child play with strangers in real life, please do not let this happen online.  There are resources to help you keep safe: 


Amazon are now providing free subscription to books and audio stories for children and students of all ages as long as schools are closed. Kids everywhere can instantly stream an incredible collection of stories, including titles across six different languages, that will help them continue learning. 

All stories are free to stream on your desktop, laptop, phone or tablet using the following link:
