As a result of COVID 19 school will be closed from Friday 20th March for the foreseeable future. We will have a small number of children who will still attend school as their parents are Key Workers. All other children will have been given a home pack of work to complete during their time away from school. We will also post on this page useful website links and any other work that the children should undertake as time goes on. Please encourage your child to spend time each day completing some of the suggested activities and if possible accessing some of these websites.
If you need to contact us please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
There is a lot of uncertainty around the current COVID-19 outbreak, particularly given that the situation is constantly developing and the information about the virus remains incomplete.
Understandably, this is causing a lot of worry and anxiety for people. Having children and young people at home, often when people are trying to work themselves, adds another layer of stress. It is therefore important to not only consider our physical health during such challenging times, but also to pay attention to our mental health. It is normal to feel worried, stressed and anxious when we are faced with uncertain situations, but the sooner we acknowledge and learn to take care of our mental health, the healthier and better equipped we’ll be to cope with the situation we’re having to face.
This information isn’t a work plan for you and your child to follow. It is some ‘hints and tips’ to go with the work that school has sent home for them to do. The information and resources here give you some ideas about how to help keep yourself and your family emotionally well during this time. There are links to mental health resources, learning resources and organisations that may be able to help. Click on the link below to access the information from the Local Authority SEND and Inclusion Service.
There is also information and advice available from the Government website for parents with SEND children.
CAMHS have also created a site for young people, carers and professionals and pooled together lots of helpful resources from across the internet to help support your mental health and well being. Please click on the ling below to take you there.

We’d like to make you aware that the SSP’s website now contains a dedicated page relating to the School Games Active Championships – click on the logo below to take you there.
This is a national activity campaign to help young people across the UK to #StayInWorkOut using the video-based platform powered by TopYa! New challenges will be available every Monday, Wednesday and Friday to engage with.
Primary and secondary-aged children can join the School Games Active Championships at any time from home or at School with free active challenges being set via videos within a designated School Games version of the TopYa! Active app.
In addition to the demonstration videos found on the TopYa! App, on the SSP’s webpage you also find a range of video clips, produced by our SSP Staff, who’ve also been giving the challenges a go for themselves.
The Great Outdoors Indoors with the Scouts!
We know the coming days and weeks are going to be difficult for families across the UK, as the spread of Covid-19 causes schools to close. As the experts in developing skills and bringing adventure to young people, we want to do what we can to help.
While we normally love the great outdoors, we’ve pulled together some inspired indoor activity ideas (if we do say so ourselves). Keep your kids learning new skills and having fun (and avoid hearing ‘I’m bored’ every 30 seconds) all in #TheGreatIndoors.
