The NSPCC has created a new webpage with information and advice for parents or carers who are worried a child or young person may be struggling with their mental health or has anxiety about Coronavirus. The webpage includes information on: talking about feelings and worries; keeping in touch and balancing screen time; ways to create structure and routine; and helping to give children a sense of control.

Dear Parents and Carers,
As you will have heard, we have been instructed by the government to partially close our school from Friday 20th March 2020 until further notice. We have been given no idea of when we will re-open.
We will be sending all children home with a pack of work together with a selection of websites to access throughout our closure. It is important that all children complete the work set to make sure they continue to learn. New work will be set throughout their time at home by their teachers, this will include work online using Purple Mash and Bug Club. Further information will be in the children’s pack of work.
Children who are currently off sick will receive a pack of work through their letter box w/c 23rd March.
Throughout the school closure, you will be able to contact school using the usual phone number: 01782 235711, if you need help and support in any way e.g. Food Bank vouchers.
We have been told that as of 30th March, those in receipt of free schools meals will receive a voucher each week which can be spent in the supermarket. We are still waiting for details of how this scheme will work and will let you know as soon as find out.
During this time of uncertainty and possible isolation, there are some positive things that you can do to reassure and calm your children.
There are many web sites which may help, such as 'Big Life Journal', offering lots of ideas to keep you busy and to advise how to talk to your children regarding Coronavirus.
Meditation, for the whole family, is a great way to come together and take time out. One of the web sites that is used in our school is called 'Headspace'. It is easy to access for all children and yourselves and is free to use. As always, please be vigilant when using websites and make sure that your parental control settings are on to avoid inappropriate pop ups.
Thank you for your co-operation during this very difficult time.
Please encourage your child to complete their Purple Mash, Timestables Rockstars and Bug Club reading each day, also remind them that they will be able to email their teachers through Purple Mash if they are stuck with their work.
Please see the below link for a project your child can complete at home.
