Advice for Parents

Home Learning

If your child is working from home, we have Home Learning on each class page. Class pages are in the Children’s section of the website. There are lots of activities to choose from. 
These are updated each week. There are also links to The Oak National Academy, which has video lessons in a range of subjects across the age groups.
If you would like any advice from your child’s class teacher, then you can contact him/her through Class Dojo or through the ‘Contact Us’ page of this website. We aim to respond within 24 hours (during the working week).  


Advice for parents of children who have SEND - Special Educational Needs /Disabilities

Please follow the link below to our SEND page, which has useful resources for you.

Free School Meals

During school closure due to coronavirus, we are providing food packs to children who receive free school meals.  These are the families who qualify for free school meals because of the benefits they receive.  If you have not already done so, you will need to apply to Lancashire County Council to register and you will need your national insurance number - use the link below or call 01772 532109.

Please note that this is not the Universal Infant Free School Meal scheme where meals are provided free of charge for Infant children at school.

The Internet

During lockdown, our children are likely to use the Internet much more.  Below you will find some useful parent information and guidelines produced for you.  Please supervise and monitor your child's use of websites, social media etc.

The most important thing individuals can do to protect themselves is to wash their hands more often, for at least 20 seconds, with soap and water. Public Health England recommends that in addition to handwashing before eating, and after coughing and sneezing, everyone should also wash hands after using toilets and whenever you return home.

The latest guidance and video on hand washing can be found here:

Scarlet Fever

Children with scarlet fever should stay off nursery or school for 24 hours after starting antibiotics or, if not on antibiotics, until their fever is gone.
