If your child is isolating and absent from school because they are waiting for a COVID test result of a household member or themselves and they feel well, then please help them continue with their learning remotely at home as a short measure (2/3 days).

Outdoor Learning Day


On Friday 13th November Maple Class took part in our school Outdoor Learning Day. We got out and about in the outdoor learning area, thought about the best place for a small animal to hibernate and really enjoyed toasting marshmallows on an open fire.
