Home Learning

We are in the process of reviewing our Home Learning, mindful of the fact that we may, at some stage in the future, have to go rapidly into a further lockdown. We aim to promote children’s independent learning, including homework, through online access to scheduled activities and collaboration between teachers and their classes. Please answer the following questions to support us in this review.

The Home Learning survey can be accessed through the following link

Free School Meals

If your child is in receipt of free school meals you should receive a voucher via email.  If you have not received the voucher then please contact school.  Please note it is really important we have up-to-date contact details and you will never need to send your bank details to receive your voucher.

Information for parents and carers
See below for an FAQ for parents and carers on how the scheme works

Many thanks for your patience with this matter.

Advice for parents during coronavirus

Whilst coronavirus is infectious to children it is rarely serious. If your child is unwell it is likely to be a non-coronavirus illness, rather than coronavirus itself. Whilst it is extremely important to follow Government advice to stay at home during this period, it can be confusing to know what to do when your child is unwell or injured. Remember that NHS 111, GPs and hospitals are still providing the same safe care that they have always done. Here is some advice to help:

See below Covid-19 Important information for parents, students and employees:


From 20th March 2020 parents were asked to keep their children at home, wherever possible, and for schools to remain open only for those children of workers critical to the COVID-19 response – who absolutely need to attend. Schools and all childcare providers were asked to provide care for a limited number of children – children who are vulnerable, and children whose parents are critical to the COVID-19 response and cannot be safely cared for at home. This addendum of the St Andrew’s CE Primary School Safeguarding, and Child Protection policy contains details of our individual safeguarding arrangements.
