School Closure 20/04/2020

Bishop’s Primary Academy                                       Date: Monday 20th April 2020

Unfortunately, the school is closed to most children.

Government advice remains that: ‘every child who can be cared for at home should be.’

We hope that you and your family are well and that you are adapting to staying at home.

We will continue to provide learning activities for all children. We are discussing how we can make this work as best possible. We have produced a sheet for this week so that there are range of activities that can be worked through each day Weekly work 20th April-24th April 2020. We do believe that there are some basic activities that we would like the children to practise every day:

  • Maths – counting and/or multiplication tables
  • A reading activity with an adult or older brother or sister
  • Practising spelling or phonics
  • A short writing activity
  • A physical activity

We believe that if the children make progress in these key areas while they are not in school it will be easier for us to help them to catch up when they do return to school. We will continue to look at the best way to help you help your children but there will continue to be a focus on these key activities.

We are offering a provision for children of key workers and vulnerable children in line with government advice. If you think that you are a key worker and have not already spoken to us you MUST speak to us before sending your child in so that we can ensure there are enough adults present in school. Please contact the school to book places.

Families who have ordered a free school meal should collect these from the car park at 12:00. Please ensure that you stay two metres away from others as you wait to collect. If you do not collect an ordered meal we will not be able to provide further food for the rest of the week as we have been instructed to reduce food waste.
