Hello to everyone in our Dormanstown Community,
We hope that you are managing to stay safe and are finding lots of activities to do at home.
The academy will remain open over the Easter holidays (except bank holidays) for children of key workers and vulnerable children, if there is no one to look after them at home.
We are continuing to provide packed lunches over the Easter break for anyone eligible for either free school meals or universal free school meals and who has requested them. Please let us know if your circumstances change.
The Pastoral Team is available between 11am and 1pm to phone if you require any support during this difficult time.
We still have a few work packs in the academy if anyone is able to collect it for your child.
Here are some more links to activities and information to support our children and families:
Children can access maths, spelling and grammar activities on SUMDOG that they can work through at home. Many children have a log on, but you can set up one at home for free during this time: https://pages.sumdog.com/
Hundreds of free resources are now available at Third Space Learning if you register for an account:
