Keyworkers

In line with Government advice, school is currently closed to all except the children of Government-identified keyworkers. If at all possible for your children to be at home, then they should be. There is an expectation that children will only need school provision if both parents are key workers, and alternative arrangements cannot be made.

Staffing in school has been reduced to the safest minimum possible. To enable school to plan effectively, please contact us urgently if you are a keyworker and need to place your child at school.

Home schooling

On the last open day of school, home schooling packs were made available to all year groups. North Yorkshire County Council have advised that once they are completed, children should go to online learning.

You can link your home schooling to the Curriculum and read your child’s Class Overview of studied topics by term on our School Curriculum page.

You can also read your child's Class Teacher's Weekly Learning Activities, which are updated weekly every Sunday.
