Bishop’s Primary Academy Date: Thursday 21st May 2020
Unfortunately, the school is closed to most children.
Government advice remains that:
The school is currently required to offer provision for children of critical workers. With some workers beginning to return to work there will be an increase in the number of children attending these sessions. Please ensure that you email the school email@example.com if you need your child to attend school. A member of staff will contact you to confirm arrangements before your child attends school. We will need to see evidence of your employment before a place can be confirmed. A list of critical workers can be found at:
We need to follow this process so that we can meet safety requirements for children and adults in school.
The packs should be collected during your daily exercise. Please ensure that you respect social distancing. There will be cones showing where to wait if there is a queue. There should only be one person in the entrance at any time.
We do understand how difficult it is to support home learning. We hope these materials help but we only ask families to do their best with their children. Sometimes taking a break is really important. You can always return to learning activities later in the day.
It is also helpful to practise basic skills such as:
These can be done in a variety of ways – sometimes without the children even noticing!!
There remain a huge amount or really useful and enjoyable resources available on the internet. These can also be used at any stage. We think the following are particularly helpful:
You Tube daily lessons
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. firstname.lastname@example.org
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. We have been instructed to reduce food waste and only provide meals that will be collected.

If you wish to contact the school please email email@example.com. We will respond within one working day.
Mental health support
This is now the single place to find out how to access mental health advice and support for 0 -25’s in Norfolk & Waveney. The key message is that you don’t need a referral, you can get in touch straight away for advice and support. If you need more specialist help, we will make sure you get to the right person.
