COVID Plans:

We are beginning to see a rise in those self-isolating and therefore requiring remote learning support. Please ensure you inform us as quickly as possible if you are keeping your child out of school with suspected symptoms. 

Any changes will be reflected in the remote learning policy listed on the website.

The academy will be celebrating Hanukkah this coming week as part of our work on multiculturalism all classes will learn about this in comparison to our learning on Diwali, Eid and Christmas.

Road Safety Day (3rd December)

This will be an important day in our Road Safety awareness programme - all children (and staff) will be wearing their most visible clothing.

Parent Consultations

Please expect contact from your class teacher to arrange your parent consultation call for the Autumn term. This call will detail our recent assessment results, plans for gap closing activities and the wellbeing and attitudes of your child.

Library

A huge well done to Mrs Thomas, who with much hard work and ingenuity has managed to get the library back to a shade of fully functioning and with a straightforward and safe operating procedure. Expect to see books coming home shortly.

Home learning 

Mathletics, Times Table Rock Stars and other remote learning logins will shortly be issued for home learning. We will expect you to complete this alongside 20 mins of home reading ready. We will soon be giving guidance for the brand new Seesaw programme we will be using to collate all of our home learning online.
