This page will include information for families and general activities that all children and families can access.
Coronavirus website - https://www.gov.im/coronavirus
Many of the activities provided require the use of online spaces. We would like to remind parents to talk to your children about internet safety and the potential pitfalls of working online. The Safer Schools App is something the school has pushed out to parents in the past and is a fantastic resource to use at this time. Please find our school on the App and use the Entry Code: 7440. Also use https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/safer-internet-day-resources/z6bbhbk for further support.
We have included these because they are currently providing free access, and many children in school are familiar with the sites. We are aware that there will be some adverts linked to these pages, so please ensure age-appropriate supervision:
