I hope this message finds you all well and looking after one another, within your family bubble.

I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing lots of the children’s remote learning work this week, whether this has been uploaded onto Google Classroom, Seesaw or Class Dojo. The teachers have pointed out several outstanding pieces of work and I have been in touch with these children to let them know how delighted I am with them.

Mrs Jewitt has put many of the photos sent in to us, with children tackling remote learning within all areas of the curriculum, onto the front page of the website. If you haven’t yet sent a photo in, it isn’t too late to do so!

We do appreciate that many of you are juggling the remote learning with your own working from home schedules and we do understand that this is not easy. Many of the teachers working from home, have their own children to deal with too! However, it is really important that you keep in touch with your child’s class teacher and upload work when you can.

We have had 3 staff members and 1 child test positive for COVID this week, which has meant that both the Nursery and the Y4 bubble are not in school until Tuesday 26th January. On average, we have had 75 children in school each day, from Reception to Year 6.

As ever, we are here to help with any concerns or worries you might have at this challenging time, so please contact us on 0191 4564977 or email myself

Take care and stay safe,
