During forced school closures, we will keep parents updated via email. We will also let you know when school is able to reopen!
Mrs Miles will be available every day to answer queries and support home learning.
Specific work, activities and suggested resources will be sent for each class at the beginning of the new term and we look forward to continuing to support children's learning at home.
 
We will also be communicating with families via our closed Facebook Group (Bicker Home Schooling) and children and families will continue to receive regular emailed updates . 
Please see below for general guidance, resources and information:
The government has published guidance for parents on school closure. Section 8 includes a number of resources for parents to access.
