Home Learning (School Closure)

School will officially close to most pupils on Friday 20th March at 3.15pm. To support you and your child's learning during this challenging time, here are a selection of activities that children can complete at home.

We have made a range of activities available for children to complete from maths to phonics and learning related to class topics. We have also included a mixture of practical and written activities to give you and your child a choice of what to complete.

As always we want to promote the importance of reading to and with your child, so If you are unable to do much whilst school is closed, maybe because you or your children are ill, or you are still having to work, we would urge you prioritise reading over any of the other learning activities.

Please don’t feel under any pressure to complete all the activities, you know your own children and are free to select the activities that you think they would most enjoy or benefit from. There is no expectation that any work is handed in at the end of the closure period.

 

Supporting parents of children with additional needs

The SEND Support Service is now operating a Parent/Carer helpline. This service is for the parents/carers of children with a special educational need (SEND), who are currently not in school. The service will offer support and guidance to parents/carers with SEND children at home, who are currently struggling to support, engage and/or manage their SEND needs. Whilst the SEN team my be able to offer strategies to help a child engage with school work set by the child/young person's school, they cannot set a curriculum for your child. This will continue to be provided by school. The helpline will be available to parents/carers from Monday 30th March and will operate between the hours of 9am-1pm. Helpline  available Monday - Friday, 9am- 11am on 0161 3438381 and 11am-1pm on 07971 132375
