As the school is now closed except for those identified vulnerable children or children of key workers we felt it appropriate to refund booking fees for the school’s Breakfast Club.
This week, Mrs Midgely is processing refunds for all bookings made for the two weeks before the Easter holidays:
Moving forwards, after the ‘Easter holidays’ refunds will be made on a weekly basis. More information to follow.
On Monday, the teachers added new content to each of their class pages:
Next week, the Class Pages will be updated on Tuesday 14th April.
The intention is for the teachers to update their class pages weekly, including resources and activities for English, Maths and Spelling/Phonics activities as well as providing a range of challenges and activities linked to other areas of the curriculum.
This week’s theme is predominately ‘Easter’ based, as you can imagine. We hope that you and your child/ren enjoy the opportunities that have been provided.
In addition, you can now contact your child/ren(s) class teacher directly. Please use the emails listed below to respond to the teachers weekly challenges/activities.
Please do not use firstname.lastname@example.org for sharing work.
The teachers will monitor the new inboxes and respond if needed. In this way, there can be a greater dialogue between our Home learners and their teachers.
I hope that our parents and children will use this in the spirit it was created for: a sharing platform to celebrate pupil achievement at home.
Please also remember to visit the Home Learning Guidance of the school website for e-links and resources to use at this time.
At this difficult time, you and/or your child/ren may be anxious or worried about the current situation. Yesterday, we added a ‘Well Being Support Pack’ designed for use over the Easter Holidays.

In addition, we have continued to update the E-Safety Guidance for parents and carers.
Lincolnshire County Council in association with the Stay Safe Partnership have create advice for parents and carers working from home. Please see the links below:
During this very difficult time, our school continues to be open through the Easter holiday period, inclusive of the Bank Holidays for our most vulnerable children and the children of key workers, who are unable to work from home.
The Government have clearly stated:
Critical workers are defined as parents whose work is critical to the COVID-19 response, including those who work in health and social care and in other critical sectors.
However, many parents working in these critical sectors will be able to ensure their child is kept at home.
Every child who can be safely cared for at home should be, to limit the chance of the virus spreading.
Therefore, if children can stay safely at home, they should, to limit the chance of the virus spreading.
Please be mindful that the most effective way to communicate with the school is through email: email@example.com as there is no guarantee there will be a member of staff on hand to answer the telephone due to the reduction in staff working in school, during this time.
All communications e.g. emails, letters, texts from school will be through our ParentmailPMX service. If you have any queries regarding school please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We will continue to support our school community as best we can.
Online educational resources to support children to continue learning at home
We have published a list of online resources that parents, and schools can consider to support children to continue learning at home. The list will be updated over time, and includes a wide range of resources for all ages that schools can consider using as part of their planned curriculum. Schools have already been drawing on existing resources and tools they are familiar with to support children to continue learning at home and should continue to do so.
