Upper & Lower School Assemblies: Monday 18th May
The CJS Learning Hub has been set up to help pupils keep up with their learning in case of school closure or the need for families to self-isolate.
Class teachers will continue to set work for pupils whilst the school is closed. Below are links to each year group’s learning tasks which will be updated weekly.
Pupils also have access to the Times Table Rock Stars and My Maths websites. Login details for these have been sent home in their reading records. If your child has forgotten their login details for either of these online platforms please email Mr Croton (See Queries below.)
Additionally, pupils can use the links on our Useful Websites page to help them with their learning. This page has links to sites such as BBC Bitezsize, Dance Mat Typing, Scratch, Woodlands Junior and many more.
Should a parent/carer have a query regarding their child’s learning, teaching staff will remain contactable via email (email@example.com.) Please address all emails with ‘FAO [Teacher’s name OR class]’ (e.g. FAO Miss Foster) in the subject line of your email.

Are you worried about something that’s happened online?
Sometimes things happen online that make us feel worried, scared or upset. Whatever has happened, it is not your fault.
The best thing to do is tell an adult you trust what has happened and how you are feeling. They will be able to help you.
Thinkuknow’s website has some excellent advice for children on what they can do if they are worried about something that has happened online.
You or your parents can also used the CEOP page to report your worries about the way someone has been communicating with you online.
