SCHOOL CLOSURE AND HOME LEARNING
In response to the Government's directive re Covid-19 and school closures, we are currently operating an amended timetable in school.
School is open daily from 08:50 until 3:30 p.m. Monday - Friday (except for Bank Holidays) to accommodate our vulnerable children and the children of key-workers.
The day provides a combination of learning and fun.
The school kitchen is open and we are grateful to Facilities Management and their staff for providing a hot meal daily.
We miss you all lots; can’t wait to hear what you’ve been up to and look forward to when our school family is together again!
To support your requests for additional home learning packs we have included information below which is relevant to each year group.
We would like to reinforce however that these are unprecedented times and this is not compulsory, it is for those who wish to do it.
Family health and mental health must always come first.

BRADFORD CATHEDRAL VIRTUAL AUDITIONS:
Bradford Cathedral are currently running 'Virtual Voice Trials' for the main Cathedral Choir using Zoom. This will allow children who are interested in joining to audition from home. All they need are a webcam and microphone. Parents can fill in a Google Form to sign their child up, and then a time will be arranged for the voice trial. The children just have to sing a couple of verses of Away in a Manger and read an excerpt from the Wind in the Willows. Cathedral staff intend to make sure it is all as relaxed as possible.
Auditions are open to any child in Years 2, 3 and 4.
The link to the form, as well as more information, can be found here:
