Parent Information and Guidance

On this page, we have tried to gather together all the key bits of information and guidance you may need. As well as any answers to common questions.  Remember this situation is new to all of us and everyone's situation is unique.



Most guidelines have suggest that children should complete approximately three hours of work a day.  When planning home learning for the children, we have kept this in mind and have planned one hour of maths, one hour of English and one hour of topic per day.  We are fully aware that, during these unprecedented times, every one’s home circumstances are different. The guidelines are just that… guidelines. You may end up doing more work on some days than others.   As teachers, we have to estimate how long tasks will take and we may occasionally get it wrong! Also, if you find that your child is particularly enjoying one task, you may want to let them explore that interest and spend less time on other activities.  You know your child best! Our aim is not to recreate school but keep them engaged with their learning. Be flexible, be patient and be kind to yourself.

While the majority of the activities we plan will encourage interest and independence, it is important that your child continues to practise certain skills.

For example:

  • Times tables,
  • Number bonds
  • Spellings
  • Learning new vocabulary (meanings)
  • Practising basic arithmetic

Please look at the report given in the last parents evening as most of these targets will still be relevant. Your child should continue to practise these.

Year Group Email

Children will be expected to email in one piece of written work a week which teachers will read and give feedback on.  Your child can also use this email to send in photos and works they are particularly proud of and want to share with others.  These may be added to the year group gallery. The email address is:



Over the next few weeks we will be contacting the children to ask how they are and if they need any support during this time.  This may show up as a private number or as the school number.
