Remote Learning Plan and Policy
It is important that we take good care of our mental health every week.
I have put together a 'Ways to Wellbeing' guide which we hope you find informative and I will also attach a Well-being Workbook which might be quite useful for the half term holiday. If you would like a printed copy of this, please let us know and we can arrange for you to pick one up.
Online Safety and Parental Controls
Another topic of conversation that we have been having quite regularly is around online safety. Children had e-safety lessons last week but we thought it might also be useful for parents to know about parental controls that are available so we have put together a guide. This is purely for your information and, as a school, we don't advocate one particular set of controls but it's always handy to know what is possible!

Reopening of School for Reception, Yr 1 and Yr 6
Learning Together Cambridgshire have created a campaign to help parents feel supported in preparing their children for the return to school. The campaign will centre around themes of emotional health, anxiety and wellbeing, use of IT, sleep support, routines and boundaries, healthy eating and sustainable travel. A new theme will be released each week on their website. You may find a general introduction here https://www.cambslearntogether.co.uk/recovery-plan/getting-back-to-school-our-campaign-for-schools-and-parents-1
