Working at Home

In the event of a school closure, we believe that children would benefit best from having a clear structured day to help them minimise the disruption to their learning. Therefore, we are expecting them to complete work every day. 

Each year group has provided instructions of activities that children can complete at home.

Furthermore - there are more general subject links at the bottom of this page. 

Suggested timetables:

Parents should create a timetable that works for themselves. 

St James - Petts Wood have created timetables for each year group. Click here for the link.
