Hope you are all keeping safe and and staying at home if at all possible.
Thank you for your kind words and support during this difficult time. We are certainly in unprecedented times and we really appreciate your support as we continue to work through the guidance we are given from the Government and the Local Authority.
Our teachers are really enjoying receiving the work sent to them and will reply to any email sent over.
Work is set through the class pages on the website and will be refreshed every Monday. Don't forget that the individual targets that all children were sent home with when school 'closed' in March are also really important areas to practise.
The main priority though is to Stay Safe and stay happy, healthy and keep smiling.
We are always at the end of the phone or the end of an email so please stay in touch.
Latest information for parents from the DFE, LA and school is displayed below. We will regularly update as neccessary.
Sending all our best wishes to you all,

The next part of our phased planning has enabled us to ensure that all children of key workers have an allocated place in school if they need this.
We are now in the position to offer any Reception aged children a place in school for a number of sessions. Reception is the year group that the Government have informed us that we should prioritise with first. I have rung to speak to these eligible families. Due to Government guidance and staffing we are only able to accommodate 6 children at a time into school. This means that the reception children that will be returning to school will be able to have 6 days each in school before the end of the academic year. The families have been informed of when their child can be in school.
We will continue to review the situation on an ongoing basis, but at this current time it is looking like we will not be able to extend to any of the other year groups before the end of the academic year due to space and staffing. This will obviously be constantly reviewed. I endeavour to speak to all families on an individual basis over the coming week.
Class teachers will continue to provide home learning via the class pages which will continue to be updated each Monday. Please can we have your understanding with this and be aware that the teachers may not always be able to respond to emails as promptly as they have been doing due to them being in school each day alongside managing home learning.
Look after you and yours x

Week beginning 1.6.20
Our school has planned for a phased re-opening on the advice, and with the support, of the Local Authority and for the first part of this phase we have been able to extend our current provision for children of key workers. This will commence from 1 June 2020. The measures are designed around the health, safety and well being of the children, staff and parents and in line with government and DCC guidelines.
We hope to be able to plan for this provision to be extended to the year groups previously outlined by the Government but this can only be put in place if risk assessments and our circumstances allow and this can be done safely.
Class teachers will continue to provide home learning via the class pages which will continue to be updated each Monday. Please can we have your understanding with this and be aware that the teachers may not always be able to respond to emails as promptly as they have been doing due to them being in school alongside managing home learning.
Mrs Carla Norris
Please find below a statement from Derbyshire County Council regarding the situation of the opening of schools from 1st June.
Please note that school will now currently not be open to the year groups Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 that were originally planned for.
Key worker provision will continue.
Please see photographs showing examples of rooms that we will be using for provision.
The children will have their own allocated table and activities will be planned to adhere to the required social distancing. The children will eat their lunch at their table and outside they will be encouraged to play social distancing games within their 'bubble'. Outdoor activities will be planned for as often as possible so fingers crossed for some lovely weather!
The Government have released guidance for parents supporting their children at home and can be found below.
