Remote / Home Schooling

Providing remote education information to parents

Whilst we realise and understand home schooling is no substitute for full-time education we face unprecedented times not seen in modern history.

On this page you will find home learning packs for Years 1 to 6. These packs will be updated in accordance with government directives regarding the length of school closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If and when packs are updated notification will be sent via the school's twitter account. All learning packs are electronically based and cover basic skills in English: Reading, Writing and Grammar; Mathematics and Science. They can be downloaded via the links below.

If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact the school directly.
