School Closure

As you will be aware School will be closed for the majority of children (due to the coronavirus).  With this in mind, we have some resources that we will keep adding to the website during the closure.

Online Safety

Due to School being closed children may go online more frequently.  Parents, please familiarise yourself and your children with some basic online safety rules which will help everyone enjoy their time online:
