Please see coronvirus page for more details. ______________________________________________________________________Welcome to James Wolfe Primary School with Centre for the Deaf. Our school is located in the centre of the Royal Borough of Greenwich, only a short distance from the Cutty Sark and the National Maritime Museum.
Extended School Closure
During this period of closure of the school building, we remain open as a virtual school for all pupils and suggested learning will be uploaded onto our website. Daily activities will be uploaded daily by 12 noon and can be found under the Parents section and will be accessed by clicking on Learning at home and homework.
Please note, we are aware of pressures on parents at this difficult time, so the activities are based around what the children already know and should be able to do. We will provide general feedback each day, but we do not expect children to keep the work completed nor bring it back to school when we re-open.
Childcare provision for eligible families during the extended school closure
Following the government directive, we will be running a child care provision during school closure at the Randall Place Campus.
This will operate with a skeleton staff and will not involve formal learning. In order to keep the numbers to a minimum and support the objective of slowing the spread of the coronavirus, the criteria has been set by the government and is precise. We ask that families only use this provision where there is no other alternative.
Our child care is only for:
- Children with an EHCP
- Children with an allocated social worker
- Children of parents who are critical workers. The term critical worker is defined as: “Critical workers include NHS staff, police, farmers and food retail workers, who need to be able to go out to work.” Further guidance can be found here:
Our care provision will operate daily from 8am-6pm. Entrance and exit through the usual Breakfast Club door. Children do not need to wear uniform. Breakfast will be served between 8am and 9am and lunch will also be provided.
Attendance will be dependent on children being fit and healthy. Remember if anyone in the home has symptoms then children should self-isolate with the family for 14 days.
The school office remains closed so any communication for children who attend our care provision should use the following mobile number: 07557 381675 (only from Monday morning onwards).
Those eligible for free school meals.
From Monday 30th March, we will be implementing a Tesco e-voucher scheme. Vouchers to the value of £12 per week for each child eligible for free school meals will be emailed to primary contact parents. Parents of children eligible for free school meals should email firstname.lastname@example.org giving their child's name and requesting the e-vouchers. The vouchers will be issued fortnightly for the duration of the school closure. Look out for texts and emails regarding this. (Please note this is not universal free school meals). This voucher scheme will replace the free packed lunch we have been issuing.
Please let us know if:
Throughout any closure, the school can be contacted by emailing the following email address email@example.com . We will answer all emails and will phone you if you ask us to.
We will keep our school community updated via the school website.
Please use the internet for advice about symptoms and call NHS 111 if your symptoms worsen.
