Weekly Home Learning Pack

During the continued school closure, staff will release online learning resources each Friday morning to support the children and parents for the following week. The first set of online resources will go live from 10:00 am of Friday 17th April in preparation for the start of term on Monday 20th April.  

These resources will be shared as a weekly blog, accessible on the school webpage, Home Learning Tab, select your year group/Phase and see the blog tab under each year group/phase home learning page. 

The Dawnay Drive Thru: Accessing the additional home learning resources

The school, working closely with our marvellous Friends committee, has purchased additional resources (including stationery), books and exercise books for children to use at home to access the weekly Home Learning Packs.

The first pack is important, as it will contain the revised parents evening notes, reading texts and additional exercise books. For children on the SEND register the pack will also have their individual support plan.

Teachers will indicate in their weekly blog and planning which resources are required. If resources are being provided by the school, these resources will be made available for families to collect at the school's new 'Dawnay Drive Thru' on Griffin Way.

Where additional resources are required, the school will provide these for parents to collect for the week ahead via ‘Dawnay Drive Thru’. The Drive thru will be open via Griffin Way entrance as follows:

  • Friday afternoons 1:00 pm till 3:00 pm (not on Friday 17th April)
  • Monday mornings 9:00 am till 11:00 am (From Monday 20th April)

For families without access to Wifi or a computer, we will prepare paper copies of the packs for collection.

We request that parents find ways to work together to share the collection duties to reduce the need for all families to visit the school. We thank you in your advance for your support and teamwork to do this.

Please note, if any packs remain uncollected, the school will find an alternative delivery method. 

Email Protocol - Parents

To enable communication between home and school during the school closure, from Monday 20th April we will put in place the following arrangements. Parents and carers can now email teachers with questions about their child’s home learning activities. The new email addresses:
