The government has announced that schools will close on Friday 20th March 2020 until further notice except for vulnerable children and those of key workers.
Keeping routines in place will help your child be successful whilst they are learning at home and we highly recommend putting a timetable in place to support them. Click here for an example timetable
If you wish to continue learning at home please go to our Children's Page where you will find lots of online activities.
