St Lawrence CE Primary School re-opened to all pupils on 2nd September 2020

Thank you to all our parents for putting your faith in our return to school plan. We have been delighted to have 100% attendance during the first week back. Our plan has worked well on the whole, and has been tweaked where we could see that improvements could be made. The children have coped incredibly well and are happy to be back with us. It has been lovely to return to some sort of normality - it feels as though we have our school back! 

Thank you for your kind words of support during our first week back. This message is typical of many:

Just a quick email from my husband and I to express our gratitude to all the team at BSL. We appreciate all the hard work and we think you have done an amazing job throughout lockdown by your constant communications and updates and also providing a safe and welcoming environment for our boys this week. I know it canít have been easy but you have given us real confidence that our childrenís safety has been paramount in all the planning. You and your staff are absolutely fantastic!

Children are now completing more homework activities online. Certainly, if they need to isolate for whatever reason, the majority of their school work will be accessed online. Our Online Safety Section has some good links and tips for keeping children safe online. You can access the information on the following link:

Online Safety - DfE Guidance

Updated guidance for parents (1st May 2020) from the DfE includes the following information: 

Is my child at additional risk while spending more time online? (New)

With children spending more time online to do schoolwork and other activities, there could be an additional risk. This is why it is more important than ever that children, parents and carers know how to stay safe online.

It is important that parents and carers talk to their children about online safety, show an interest in what they are doing online and ask what they like and dislike about the apps and services they use. Discuss age appropriate Ďground rulesí like how much time they spend online doing different things and what games and apps are appropriate to use. Also consider setting up and reviewing age appropriate parental controls. Setting parental controls can be a quick and effective tool to help protect children online

Where can I go to get support to help keep my child safe online? (Updated)
