The prime minister announced yesterday that all schools in England are to close from Friday 20th March 2020 in order to delay the spread of the Coronavirus.
Although children and staff are understandably saddened by this news, it is not unexpected and so preperations have already been made to ensure that teaching and learning can take place remotely, and that high quality education can continue online.
Children have been getting to grips with Microsoft Teams over the past few weeks to prepare, and classes have been set up for year groups and subjects. Children will interact with their teachers and fellow pupils through live online lessons and also receive assignments, and upload completed work.
More information relating to specific year groups will be sent to parents in due course, and with the support of parents and staff we are confident that the children will continue to thrive.
