School Update - URGENT!!! Please read this letter from Joanne Bradshaw, CEO of SSET, explaining that school will NOT be opening to more children on 8th June following advice from Sheffield City Council. If you need a key worker place and have not spoken to anyone at school about this, please inform us by phoning 01142441512, texting 07400186975, emailing email@example.com or leaving a message on Class Dojo.
I am aware that many of you will be aware of the announcement in the government briefing on Sunday 10th March that schools may start reopening to children in F2 (Reception), Year 1 and Year 6 from June 1st. There is still a lot of uncertainty about exactly what the government is expecting from schools in terms of reopening, so try not to worry too much at the moment about what is going to happen. I can assure you that we will do whatever we can to keep our children, families and staff safe and will keep you well informed once plans for reopening are clearer, so that you can ask questions and raise any issues. In the meantime, take care and stay safe.
Mrs Cath Whittingham

Headteacher Update - Support with Routines
School staff have really enjoyed speaking to you and your children during phone calls over the last few days. It is clear that you are really wanting to support your children with their home learning - even though this is a challenge for all sorts of reasons, including the fact that the children are not always willing to have a go at the activities provided for them. Please use the link below to watch a video from the Education Endowment Foundation which gives some really helpful ideas about how to put routines in place to help you and your child structure each day. Let us know how you get on by sending a message on Class Dojo and/or when you next talk to a member of school staff on the phone. Thank you for all your support.
