During the third lockdown the school is currently open to the children of critical workers and vulnerable pupils (by invitation) only. All other children should attend remote learning from home.

All lessons are being delivered as live lessons to all pupils daily, whether at home or in school, via a blended learning process.

For Years 1 to 6 the school uses Google Classroom to communicate with children home schooling, and holds live lessons on Google Meet.

All children at home, providing they are well, are required to attend remote learning and this is monitored on a daily basis by the teaching staff and if necessary, the Senior Leadership.
