Supporting Key Workers

Heritage is committed to supporting key workers at this time of the COVID 19 pandemic. We want to do everything we can to look after their children so that they can continue do their vital jobs and look after us!

The school is opening daily from 8.30am to 3.30pm for nine children, most of whom are in the Infant and Junior school. Their day starts with a song and a Bible reading from the Easter story. Working from two classrooms, the children are then supported by a small staff team as they complete their ‘Learning at Home’ curriculum. Playtimes are long and relaxed with all the age groups playing really well together. Read Aloud (currently ‘James and the Giant Peach’) takes place in both the morning and the afternoon.

After lunch, a range of activities are on offer including art or handicraft, PE, a free choice of board games, nature enjoyment and sketching by the brook. (At the end of day one, Mrs Carter and Mrs Fetcher reflected that it felt very much like the old days when the school started with just 16 children in 2007.)

We are very grateful to all the staff who are making this possible and should school closures continue, we will continue to support key worker children next term.
