As part of the government’s attempt at containing the spread of Coronavirus, Colegrave Primary School will be closed until further notice. We will be communicating with parents and carers via Parentmail and the school website; please regularly check these platforms for updates as well as re-opening dates and advice.

 

Learning at home:

Children are expected to complete English, maths and topic work daily. If your child is in Year R, 1 or 2 they will be provided with a pack of work. If your child is in Oak class, Year 3, 4, 5 or 6 then they will receive work via Google classroom.  Please ensure your child is completing work daily and is reading regularly.
