Home Learning Survey

Dear Parents and Carers,

Despite the crazy times we are living in we hope you managed to have a nice weekend and enjoy some of the lovely weather we’ve been having.

It’s hard to believe that schools have only been shut for 15 school days (not including Easter) and already so much has changed.

We don’t know if you know but we had two days notice to set up ‘Online Home Learning’ with staff who were also sick or isolating. It also looks like there is no clear update on when this will end so we want to ensure we are supporting you as best as we can.

Please find below links to a simple survey questionnaires for parents and pupils about home learning.  We would appreciate your thoughts which can help us make our support even better. Please click on the appropriate link below.

 Please also share with your child or help them to complete together.

Free School Meal Vouchers

Dear Parents and Carers,

You will have seen some information released this week about Free School Meals (FSM) provision.

From Monday 20th April the Government will issue Free School Meals vouchers to parents and carers of pupils eligible for FSM. This new system will be to the value of £15 per week per child. As we have set up a voucher system this month it should come into your emails in a similar way.
If you have changed your email or not received it please contact
Please do not message on Facebook or Messenger as the admin team will not get this message!

This new system does not begin until after Easter, and the Government says schools should not support over Easter, however we will still be issuing our £8 vouchers each week until this happens.

Your child may be able to get free school meals if you get any of the following

Easter Holidays



From Friday 3rd April at 3.00pm school staff on Easter break. Your daily ‘Home Learning’ messages will stop and will begin again on Monday 20th April. In the meantime, more general activities broken into Key Stages are available on our website (

Have a lovely Easter. Look after each other.
