Strategic Plan 2020-2021

This year is a year unlike any other. Our goal is to help all our children and families come back to school, safely, and to learn.

Children who might have gaps in learning from lockdown need to be helped to fill them. Children who have learnt lots through lockdown need to be helped to continue to learn more and access a rich and varied curriculum.

We also need to make sure we have an online platform ready to support home learning for children and families should they need to self-isolate or quarantine at home.

Our communication with families must be good so that we can work together to make the best of this year.

Here is an overview of some of the priorities we have for this year.

If you feel that we have missed something or there is something more we can do please get in touch and let us know.
