Tuesday 19th May

Good morning everyone. I am sure you will all have received a letter stating that Miss Robinson has unfortunately had to take some time off due to unforseen circumstances. We can assure you that it is not Covid-19 related and we wish her a speedy recovery. Mr Wheeler will be taking over her email responses related to home learning. Please send work to his address if you only send via email  and Mr Worsfold will be taking over the tapestry learning pages. Nothing else will change. Ash class will still receive reading certificates and effort certificates as normal on Fridays. It may take us slightly longer to respond to you as we adapt but please rest assured we will do everything we can to help you. If you have any queries not relating to the learning please direct them to Mr Worsfold at Thank you. 

A picture of Mr Wheeler can be found below. Maybe you have seen him around school
