I am writing to inform you that we have responded to parental requests for additional materials for home learning. These are now on our website under two tabs ‘Non-screen home learning’ and ‘Online home learning’. I would like to clarify that those children in school are not following the national curriculum. We are providing a safe and happy place for them to be whilst their carers are working on the front line or have individual reasons to be in school. I hope that this explains more clearly for you the current arrangements. We did not send home ‘packs’ because we wanted to make sure that you had a wide choice of activities that would engage all of our children. This was also one of our many measures to reduce infection. We did not inform you of all of these reasons at the time because we did not want to alarm you. However, it is clear that a few parents require further information. I hope this helps.
