Home Learning

Grimes Dyke Primary is now closed to all pupils with the exception of vulnerable pupils and children of key workers. The government advice is very clear that this provision is not an entitlement, it is only for children who absolutely need to attend. The guidance states:

We have asked parents to keep their children at home, wherever possible, and for schools to remain open only for those children who absolutely need to attend. 

We understand that this is a challenging time for everyone including parents and carers who have suddenly become their children's teachers! We hope this page on the website will give you plenty of ideas but don't forget we're only a phone call or email away.
