Details of school provision and help/resources for learning at home

Our plan for keeping children and staff safe during the summer term was to:

Minimise contact and maximise hygiene

  • Children in groups (maximum of 15 children in a group); often referred to as a 'bubble'.
  • Children with the same children and adults all day every day - staying in the same room (apart from to go to the toilet and play/exercise outside).
  • Children have their own chair, table and equipment, which is not used by other children and is disinfected regularly during the day.
  • There is hand sanitiser and anti-bacterial wipes in every room, as well as hand washing after children have been outside.
  • Packed lunches prepared on site and delivered to classes (no hot meals).
  • No one with symptoms of COVID-19 (coronavirus) allowed on site.
  • Families wash their children's clothes after each day.
  • There is a one-way / in-out system for moving around the school site (two 'in' gates and two 'out' gates).
  • Some play equipment is not able to be used, but the equipment that can be easily cleaned and sanitised is still used.

Home Learning

For those children in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 who are not coming to school, you can access the learning resources here (printed copies of work packs are not available to collect for these children):

Here are links to the other year groups' learning resources too:

If children are off school and parents/carers wish to have a routine that is consistent with what we are doing on the school site, this is what we are doing:

  • 9am – 10am         Exercise (e.g. walking, yoga, indoor/garden circuits, bike riding)
  • 10am – 11am       ‘School work’ (using the online/paper-based resources we have provided)
  • 11am – 12pm       Creative time (eg. Lego, drawing, colouring, craft, singing, music, cooking)
  • 12pm – 1pm         Lunch and Relax
  • 1pm – 3pm           ‘School work’ and Quiet time (e.g. read a book, watch TV, play a board game)

Please read our Windmill Guide to Home Learning, which helps you know what we expect from you... not too much!

In term-time, teachers will be communicating with classes every week day by 9:15am using ClassDojo.  Send photos of what your children have been up to using the Messages function on ClassDojo and the teachers will try to respond to you by the next day.

The Department for Education have recommended some websites for home learning too:

We subscribe to Twinkl and we think their resources are great.  Their website is free to parents at the moment and we recommend it if you're stuck for resources at home.
