Welcome to our home learning area which we hope you will find useful at this current time. You will find a selection of online learning websites as well as class areas with a range of activities and resources.
Although we have provided access to online resources, we know that it is not recommended that anyone spends too long at a computer screen or i-pad: like adults, children need a balance so please do make the most of the additional activities we have shared that will support active learning and I am sure you will have lots of your own to-do list too! Also, please monitor your child when using online resources. The websites we are recommending are used in school but parental control settings should still be in place for additional safety.
The school email address can be used for you to contact school if necessary. It would be nice for your child to be able to share some of their home learning activities, so please feel free to send photos or alternatively keep a folder/scrapbook of their work which can be brought back into school.
This area will continue to be updated so please visit this page frequently.
We pray that each and everyone of our loved ones, our whole school community and our neighbours near and far stay safe.

The Realities of Home Schooling
We know that being a parent of a disabled young person is a big ask! Parent carers deserve a medal just getting the children out of the house and to school on time. None of us were expecting things to change so rapidly and the impact of Corona Virus has been enormous. Suddenly we are full time teachers, keep fit instructors, bakers, and candle stick makers! On top we are trying to get our heads around new guidance and do we stay alert or do we stay at home. This webinar aims to discuss: • Expectations from school, ourselves, outside influences (family members social media) • What are the real difficulties, your pains, what works, what doesn’t, what do you need help with, what creative solutions have you found? • What ideas do we have that are thinking outside the box? • How do we look after ourselves in these uncertain times with the added pressure of looking after our children? We don't have all the answers and we do not promise to be home school experts but we are parent facilitators and know that by coming together with like-minded people does make us stronger. Katie Clarke and Karen Hickton are from sunny Yorkshire and have worked in the voluntary sector and with families for many years. They both have lived experience of disability and know too well the many ups and downs of being an Awesome Parent!
