We are very sorry that we are not able to welcome all children back due to the new lockdown restrictions announced on Monday, January 4th. We remain open to vulnerable pupils and critical worker families. If you are staying at home, please keep in touch with your teacher on regular basis who will continue offering support for our pupils during the time away from school.

BBC to put lessons on TV during lockdown

The BBC is helping children keep up with their studies during the latest lockdown, by broadcasting lessons on BBC Two and CBBC, as well as online.

Schools are open only to children of key workers and vulnerable children, with most children now continuing their learning remotely from home.

The BBC will show curriculum-based programmes on TV from Monday, January 11th.

They will include three hours of primary school programming every weekday on CBBC, and at least two hours for secondary pupils on BBC Two.

During the first lockdown, lessons were available in iPlayer, red button and online, but not on regular TV channels.
