Whilst the school is closed, this will be the area of the website that is dedicated to information for parents and children’s home learning.

It is our aim that children’s education is impacted upon as little as possible during this period of closure.

The ‘Home Learning’ page shows a timetable for the week.  We have set a range of work that we believe children will be able to complete relatively independently.  If your child has completed the work as set out for their year group, then they can either access any of the website links listed for additional activities and practice, carry out additional reading, keep a diary, create their own story etc…

More work will be set for next week if school closures continue.

If you have any questions regarding the school or home learning, please use the email address below ( to send us your enquiry and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.

Many thanks for your ongoing support at this time

Mr Statham



To register a place for week beginning 15th June – Please contact our school office before 10th June at 12 noon. Telephone number 0208 804 5013

The school has been informed that, as part of the new NHS Test and Trace service, we may need to share the names and contact numbers of anyone (or their parents and carers where applicable) who may have come into contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19. This will generally be a child or adult within the same ‘bubble’.

The NHS Test and Trace service:

  • ensures that anyone who develops symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) can quickly be tested to find out if they have the virus
  • helps trace recent close contacts of anyone who tests positive for coronavirus and notifies them that they must self-isolate at home to help stop the spread of the virus

Therefore, we may need to share your details with Public Health England as part of the Trust’s public duty requirements. You will also be required to take the steps that Public Health England communicate to you if they contact you.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
