"Pupils are developing into confident learners through the positive relationships that exist in school and the praise and encouragement they receive from adults." OFSTED INSPECTION 2016

"High-quality support is provided for pupils who have special educational needs or disability, and for pupils who have emotional needs, especially to improve their self-esteem and social skills."

Bincombe Valley School is closed until further notice 

Schools have been directed to close and remain closed until February half-term except for children of key workers and vulnerable children, as part of the country’s response to the new variant of COVID-19 (coronavirus).

Bincombe Valley Primary School and Community Nursery will provide support in school for;

  • the children of critical workers* and vulnerable children 

*Please note that the children of those who appear on the critical workers list should only attend if they cannot be looked after at home (for example a parent has to go into work and cannot work from home).

This will include the continuation of Breakfast and After-School Club provision for those that require it.

Those children deemed vulnerable include children who are supported by social care, those with safeguarding and welfare needs, including child in need plans, on child protection plans, ‘looked after’ children, young carers, disabled children and those with education, health and care (EHC) plans

Remote learning is being provided through our 3 main platforms: Tapestry, Google Classroom and Marvellous Me.

In some instances we are providing some hard copies of work for those that have requested it.

There are additional resources and materials being posted online by third parties. We know from last time parents found the BBC material very useful to supplement the learning received from school. The BBC have added some additional resources this time around:

From Monday to Friday, you can watch Bitesize Daily on BBC Red Button from 9am to 11am, and again on BBC iPlayer.

Each 20-minute lesson will cover a different age group and will be brought to you by experts, teachers and some very familiar faces from the world of TV, sport and beyond.

Primary age children are expected to receive and complete at least 3 hours of school work a day, so please ensure that children are being encouraged to complete the home learning that is being set for them.

Please contact the school if you require any assistance with remote learning.
