Children continue to learn in school from 8.45am when gates open to 3.30pm home time (3.20pm for Nursery and Reception). School continues to close at 12.30 on Friday afternoon for home learning where children practice their digital literacy skills through completing learning tasks online. Overall available learning time for children in school remains more than most local schools. However, Friday afternoon home learning will be reviewed at the end of term to see if we will continue this in the future. We strongly believe our home learning provision is essential in maintaining the children’s computing skills and knowledge that will become increasingly important in their learning life. If children need to isolate, or if there is another lockdown, it is extremely important that the children have the skills and resources to continue their learning remotely online. Friday afternoon home learning can be completed anytime before Monday so our families can be flexible about their weekend arrangements.
We offer Priority Provision on Friday afternoon for any children to complete home learning in school where this is not possible at home. Please contact the school office or discuss with senior leaders who are at the gates in the morning and after school if you require a place for your child.
