Coronavirus Disruption

Dear Parents

Coronavirus Disruption

In line with government guidelines the school closed on Friday 20th March until further notice.

Remote learning using Office 365 and Zoom for video conferencing is now live for all pupils from Early Years up to Y6.  The Teams app in Office 365 is being used for all assignment work and core skills will be taught by teachers through Zoom.  Marking and feedback is taking place from within Teams. Pupils are able to speak with teachers throughout the day if they require assistance.

Further advice can be gained by visiting the Public Health England and NHS website:

Please be advised that, to safeguard the children, the email addresses that have been created for pupils will only work with @fossebankschool.co.uk email addresses, so children cannot email outside the school.

Resources for mental health and wellbeing can be found below.

Places are available throughout the school from September and whilst we cannot conduct prospective parent visits we have created a Virtual Tour to try and give you a snapshot of life at Fosse Bank. If you are interested in joining our family then please do get in touch and we can arrange a virtual taster day for your child so they can meet the class teacher, pupils and sample some of our remote lessons.

Kind regards

Alison Cordingley
Headmistress

Fosse Bank School
