Update following Government Announcement 11th May 2020
Following the Government announcement yesterday regarding a phased return for some primary children we will be working on plans for how this will work at New Road. We have been advised that Reception, Year 1, Year 6 and Key Worker children can return to school on June 1st. We are awaiting further guidance and support from both the Department of Education and the Local Authority which we should receive over the next few days. Please be assured that our number one priority is the safety, health and wellbeing of our pupils, staff, parents and carers. All planning will be centred around ensuring we do not compromise these in any way. Once we have a plan in place that has been scrutinised and checked over I will then communicate this with you so you are clear with the systems we will be implementing. Thank you for your patience and continued support.
Stay safe and healthy and see you all soon.

We are pleased to let you know that your child can receive a daily phonics lesson whilst schools are closed. Phonics is the way we teach children to recognise the sounds in words. It helps your child to learn to read and is an essential part of your child’s education.
The letters and Sounds for home and school starts on 27th April, you will be able to access for your child a daily phonics lesson by clicking on the link below. All lessons are introduced by celebrities, including children’s TV presenters, which adds an exciting addition to the lessons.
There are three sets of daily lessons to choose from and we suggest your child starts with one set of lessons most suitable to their year group and reading ability.
I hope you all enjoy.
