We hope that you are all staying healthy and coping well at home. We are posting more resources on our website, including a new link to the Oak National Academy. We do not however, want you to feel overwhelmed by the pressure of home learning and we would advise that you do your best to achieve a sense of learning routine, but that you find a balance between learning and recreation to suit your child's needs and your family circumstances and routines. We want the learning to be fun and motivating and we want to prioritise the well-being of every child, so that the eventual return becomes manageable.

We want to thank you all for keeping in touch and sending us so many lovely photographs of happy and active children, enjoying some unexpected opportunities for fun and creative experiences, as well as for home based learning. Please keep these going, as well as any useful tips for children and adults! If you would like to send in any pieces of work for feedback, do send them to the school website.

We shall stay in touch over the coming weeks. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you feel that we can offer you or your children any extra support. We are always available to contact through the school email at spaxtonschool@educ.somerset.gov.uk whatever your query may be. Please check our Facebook page for regular updates.
