Home Learning

Welcome to our Home Learning Zone. 

This is where we will set activities for you to complete at home, together with providing the necessary support and guidance you may require.

Isolation Home Learning Packs


If your child has been asked to isolate from school we have prepared packs of work for them to complete during the isolation. Some of this work will be online and some paper based. Staff will be contacting you during the isolation period to check on your child's wellbeing and that they understand the work set. You will be able to contact staff via the class email that will be given out when isolation is required.

If you are unable to access work set online then please let a member of staff know and we can arrange for paper copies of work to be given instead.

If you are entitled to Free School Meals then you will be offered a packed lunch for your child for the time they are in isolation.

The home learning packs that were given out prior to the summer break have been left on here just in case you did not get time to complete them all, but they will be taken off here at the end of this half term.

New packs will be placed on the website as classes go into isolation.
