    COVID-19: Information and Resources

    Home learning during academy closure

    Year group specific home learning is posted on the 'classes' page of this website by 5pm each day, ready for the following day's learning. To find it, click on 'classes' from the top menu, then on your child's year group in the list on the left hand and then on 'Academy closure- home learning'.  The relevant documents can be found by scrolling down the page.

    Over the Easter break, from Monday 6th April to Friday 17th April 2020, we won't be adding to the Home Learning daily pages, as we are doing during term time.  If you do wish to continue school work with your child, we suggest you look back over any of the activities from the previous two weeks that you didn’t manage to complete and/or try out some of the free learning resources out there, either ones you have found yourself or from the extensive list below.

     

    Keeping Safe

    Remind your child that if they are worried about anything or need to talk to someone while the school is closed there are places they can go for support.  For example, Childline can be contacted for free on 0800 1111, or children can get support online 

    https://www.childline.org.uk/get-support/

    Our designated safeguarding leads are still working during usual school hours during the COVID-19 academy closure, so please do contact them on the school phone number 020 3772 4573 or info@harrisprimaryeastdulwich.org.uk if you are concerned about a child.
