- About Us
Wednesday February 10th
We are extremely short staffed today so please if you are a critical worker parent only send your child in if you work in health / social care or an emergency service and have to go into work. If you can make an alternative arrangement please do so. We will keep an eye on the weather and we may have to close early.
School Closure - January 2021
The school is currently closed to all pupils except key worker's children and vulnerable children. This follows guidance issued by Central Government to control the spread of coronavirus. Remote teaching and learning will be provided using Google Classroom.
Click the link below to access Google Classroom where you will find the link to live teaching using Google Meet.
Work will be added every weekday and live teaching will take place between 9am and 12pm.
Remote Learning Timetables
Please click the link below for timetables of daily activities for each year group. Here you will find timings for when your child can access live teacher lead lessons and recommended independent tasks. Specific tasks can be found within the child's google classroom.
Joining a Class with a Join Code
Research has shown that turning on the subtitles of your TV can double the chances of a child being good at reading. TV time =Reading time! Why not give it a go and see if it helps your child.
Lateral Flow Tests
The government has announced that parents and support bubbles of primary aged pupils can order lateral flow tests to use at home. We would absolutely love it if families did order these as asymptomatic testing will help to keep us all safe. Staff in school are using these twice a week. Please click on the link for further information.
When the children return to school next week they will be doing PE outdoors. On their PE Day they can come in PE kit and can bring a jumper if needed.
The PE Days for each year group are...
Monday Year 4
Tuesday Year 5 & Year 6
Wednesday Year 2 and Reception
Thursday Year 1 & Year 3
We are so looking forward to welcoming the children back. Here are a few reminders in order to keep everyone safe. We did so well before Christmas and we would love to have all the children in school until Easter without a bubble to be sent home. Rates are dropping but we need to keep going.
1. Please wear a mask in the yard when you are dropping your children off and collecting them. Only one person should drop the children off and please do this as quickly as possible.
2. Please keep behind the cones in the yard when lining up and do not try to speak to the class teacher.
3. We will be keeping all the doors and windows open in school so it might be worth your child wearing an extra t- shirt or vest under their school uniform or having a spare jumper to wear in the classroom.
4. Playtimes will be outside and on the field as before so coats and outdoor footwear as before.
5. Children should come to school in P.E kit on P.E days.
Staff will be wearing masks in crowded corridors and when they come out into the yard.
Finally we have heard that the government has announced that families/carers of school age children will be able to access asymptomatic testing twice a week using LFD home test kits. We do not have any further information about this yet and will let you know as soon as we do.
Please will you bring our laptops back to the main office so that Miss Burnip can check you off
Monday 8th March-Reception, Years 1 and 2
Tuesday 9th March -Years 3 and 4
Wednesday 10th March-Years 5 and 6.
If you would like to put your child's name down for September 2021, Jan 2022 or April 2022 please contact Miss Dickinson on 01388 762400 option 1 or email email@example.com

One week to go!
We are really looking forward to welcoming the children back into school from Monday 8th March following the government announcement this week.
On Thursday and Friday next week our online learning will look a little different as some of the lessons will be pre recorded so that staff can come into school to prepare for the following week. They will still check in with the children each day to explain tasks but just won't be “live” all morning. There will be plenty of work still to do.
Have a lovely weekend.
It is finally half term and what a half term it has been! I am incredibly proud of the Crook Community for what we have achieved together to provide the best opportunity for the children. They have adapted so well and shown great resilience and positivity. Thank you all for supporting us so well. Now it is time to rest and recharge and have some quality family time without Crook Primary beaming into your houses every morning!
Have a lovely week off and we look forward to continuing this journey together after half term.
