  Copies of all letters sent home can be found under the parents page of the website by clicking the "letters" tab.

Key workers: Please ensure you have used the keyworkers@cheshamprimary.co.uk email address to request a place for the days required but only if you absolutely cannot find alternative childcare arrangements. 

We have issued Tesco 'student' cards to all children eligible for a free school meal. These are topped up every two weeks. Please don't let Tesco take the cards back even when they're used; otherwise we can't top them up!

If you and your child are finding the current situation challenging  then please check the SEN section for further advice.

National School Sport Week at Home 2020

The annual National School Sport Week campaign takes place in the last week of June every year to celebrate the important role of Physical Education and school sport in enhancing young people's wellbeing.

This year, the Youth Sport Trust has teamed up with Sky Sports to run a national campaign which will aim to unite the country - families, schools, sport and businesses - in a celebration of the power of sport to bring people together, even during isolation.

The UK-wide campaign will challenge people to take on their families, friends and neighbours in virtual sporting challenges – helping them to connect in an unprecedented period of school closures and social distancing.

Why not try some of these activities below:

Air Balloon Challenge

Bean Bag Challenge

Burpee Challenge

Bunny Jump challenge

Around the world challenge

A poem by Makenzie for National Sports Week.

There have been a wealth of websites and learning stations offered so far but to simplify matters a little please use the following sites which will be regularly updated during term time.

Foundation Stage: Please use Tapestry and Phonics Play

Key Stage 1: Please use Purple Mash, Numbots, Phonics Play and Tapestry.

Lower Key Stage Two (Y3/Y4): Please use Purple Mash, TT Rockstars and Epic. Give see saw a try too!

Upper Key Stage two: Please use See Saw and Purple Mash

 Your child already has a login for Purple Mash which has a wealth of activities across the curriculum and a log in for TT Rockstars.

*******************************************************************

Whilst we remain closed, we are collecting pictures of our children working, playing, being creative ... or whatever they're doing. Please feel free to send them in to keyworkers@cheshamprimary.co.uk

ALFA have uploaded songs to enjoy and singalong with on their Youtube channel as well as a special song, written by Mr. Nelson, to wish "Happy Birthday" to anyone 'celebrating' during the closure of school.

(Just search "ALFA" education)

Why not try singing to raise your spirits and exercise those vocal chords?

   

 There are also songs to help support and practice children's learning!

    

 

'BBC offers biggest online   education push 'in its history'

The BBC is offering daily programmes to help parents and children with schoolwork at home during the lockdown. Videos, quizzes, podcasts and articles will appear on BBC Bitesize Daily via the BBC iPlayer, red button, BBC Four and BBC Sounds.

**********************************************************************************************************

 

Parents/carers who require information about school place availability should email the admissions team at admissions@bury.gov.uk or, if you do not have access to email,  telephone 0161 253 5670 and leave a message. Please note that admissions staff will respond to your query as soon as possible. Their hours of work will be 8.30-4.45pm, Monday to Friday.

With regards to who can attend school during the lockdown the Government has stated we should still follow the following principles:

  • If it is at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be.
  • If a child needs specialist support, is vulnerable or has a parent who is a critical worker, then educational provision will be available for them.
  • Parents should not rely for childcare upon those who are advised to be in the stringent social distancing category such as grandparents, friends, or family members with underlying conditions.
    1. If you are a key worker, and you are unable to make alternative childcare arrangements, please contact school via email at keyworkers@cheshamprimary.co.uk with your name, your child's name and state clearly your job, employer and keyworker role.
    2. The Government has also asked that schools remain open to provide a safe and secure place during the day for children of key workers, children with an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) and/or Social Worker but only if you need it and do not have alternative child care provision.

    Please note: if you and your child are in isolation, then your child may not attend school until 14 days have passed.

    Children who do not fall in to these groups must stay at home with appropriate care.

    Please note your child will only be allowed to attend school if they fall in to one of the keyworker groups and you have registered them as such.

    A helpline has been launched to answer questions about COVID-19 related to education. Staff, parents and young people can contact the helpline as follows:

    Phone: 0800 046 8687
    Email: DfE.coronavirushelpline@education.gov.uk
    Opening hours: 8am to 6pm (Monday to Friday}
