Parent Information

Dear parents and carers

School is currently closed in order to help prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus.  Some children of key workers will remain in school next week.  Please do not send your child into school unless you have been asked to do so.

If you are a key worker and would like to request a place for your child in school please click here

We are opening the school to pupils in Year 6 from 1st June and detailed guidance can be found here

Please visit the Devon Schools Covid 19 website page

We know that it is a difficult time for everyone in our community but I also have every faith that the town will support each other brilliantly.  Already many individuals and groups have come forward to support those that will need it and we are all very grateful and proud of them.  

Keeping in touch

Moving forward, you will continue to have many questions I am sure.  I will post regular updates below and via our school communication channels and we will get the information you need to you as soon as we have it.  I will post updates, including information about Free School Meals, in the blog at the bottom of this page.  You can direct questions to the following email address:

Home learning


To help support you with your children's learning at home, we have tried to provide you with lots of activities. They can be found on the pupil page. There is plenty here so that you have lots of choice and can pick the activities that capture your / your child's interest. Please only choose a few activities a day. You are not expected to complete all of the activities.

You can choose to follow daily lessons by BBC Bitesize or Oak Academy instead, or complete the activities on the home learning grid. It is up to you. You can also ‘pick and mix’ from the different sources.


We know that this is all very different, and we want to thank you for all your hard work and support. Remember, you are not expected to complete all the activities. Be kind to yourself and complete only a few a day, with 20-25 minutes independent reading time for your child if possible.

Some great information to support parents with home learning can be found here

We look forward to seeing you all as soon as possible and take great care of yourselves.

Mr Le Bredonchel
