Learning if school closes

Dear all

This is where any worksheets, notes and website links will be posted for different year groups should the school be asked to close in light of the Covid-19 outbreak. We will try and keep this updated regularly, but please bear with us as we all try and keep on top of things. Links to year groups specific learning are at the bottom of the page but please look at all of the links below as they may be suitable for your children.

We cannot take responsibility for any links that take you away from our school website so please be aware that you follow these links at your own choice.

Please find below a list of some of the websites offering free or trial periods of their resources. They have been broken down into different subjects but often websites do in fact cover the whole curriculum. None of these websites require payment to access so some of the obvious platforms haven’t been included. Some do require you to log in or create a free account to access.
