Coronavirus - COVID-19

Parents of Overdale. Please find below guidance on the key workers and school closure announcements. We must stress that the document does state for the minimum amount of children to be in school to control the virus and protect our society. We still require you to contact school if you feel you fall into these categories. We will be working on this today and getting in touch as soon as possible.

Home Learning

In light of the Covid-19 concerns around the UK at the moment, please find below a range of websites that can help your child with home learning. This, in addition to regular reading at home will work towards filling the learning that your child will miss out on when the school closes. For some of these websites your child has a personal log in. As the government has directed closure, we will send any logins out with children on the final day of school. 

www.sumdog.com - Children in years 1-6 will already have a login to this which is being sent home to staff
