Key Information during Covid-19

As a school we continue to offer childcare to children of key workers who have no one at home to care for them.  Any parents in this situation can contact the school office by email to request a place for their child.

Home Learning

Teachers are working incredibly hard setting work for all children through Google Classroom.  All families will have received their child(ren)’s login for this website.  Children also have access to their Doodle Apps for practicing Maths, Times Tables, English and Spelling.  As always we want our children to read each day.  In response to parents concerns regarding running out of books at home, all children have been set up with access to Big Cat where they can access books online of a similar level to their reading books from school.  Families can also set up accounts through KCC libraries to have access to a wealth of free ebooks.  If any families cannot find their logins, please do not hesitate to contact the school

We believe this time is challenging for all of our community and our primary concern is the wellbeing of our pupils and their families.  We are supporting families through weekly phone contact  and we have also set up a private Facebook group for our school community to enable informal communication and minimise the risk of isolation.

As we await any announcement on when schools will start to reopen we shall continue to support our children and look forward to throwing open the doors and coming together as one community once more.

Stay safe and stay home.

Best wishes from the Trottiscliffe Team.
