Dear Parents and Carers
It is our aim to provide children with high quality remote education; we do this via Microsoft Teams. Click here to read further information about our Remote Education.
Here are two useful tips to assist you and your child at home.
Set up a routine
The key here is to make it a routine – not a schedule. Be flexible, but with boundaries. That means getting up at the same times and having things that you do in a regular order…it doesn’t mean timing every second of the day with military precision! Make the routine visual, factor in free time without screens and when they’re doing schoolwork, do some of your own work/jobs/chores alongside them.
Try new things
Introduce them to the things you love and share stories with them – make it an opportunity to connect. Watch documentaries and nature programmes (who doesn’t love a bit of ‘Blue Planet’?!); cook together and measure out ingredients, create exercise routines together, play board games and card games, show them how you manage the household budget and divide up money to cover bills, food and other things.

As children potentially spend longer online over this period, it is vital that families do all they can to help them stay safe online. Please see our Online safety page for lots of advice.
If you have any concerns about the safety or welfare of a child, or you would like some help or advice, please contact Mrs Marsh:
