What an amazing day Y4! The trials of tackling the maze might have confused some, but not our adventurous team, who tackled it so well they all made it out for lunch! Looking forward to welcoming them back soon! https://t.co/C1DCYbbrNb

Our Y4 adventurers are up (if not wide-awake😄) after a good sleep. Everyone is dressed, starting to pack, tidy up, clean and then it will be time for breakfast. Lots to do before they can tackle the maze! Looking forward to seeing them at 3pm.

Easter holiday activities

Easter holidays 

Over the Easter break, from Monday 6th April to Friday 17th April 2020, we won't be adding to the 'home learning during school closure' pages, as we are doing during term time.  If you do wish to continue school work with your child, we suggest you look back over any of the activities from the previous week that you didn’t manage to complete and/or try out some of the free learning resources out there, either ones you have found yourself or from the extensive list below.

Keeping Safe

Remind your child that if they are worried about anything or need to talk to someone while the school is closed there are places they can go for support.  For example, Childline can be contacted for free on 0800 1111, or children can get support online 

https://www.childline.org.uk/get-support/

Our designated safeguarding leads are still working during usual school hours during the COVID-19 academy closure, so please do contact them on the school phone number 020 3772 4573 or info@harrisprimaryeastdulwich.org.uk if you are concerned about a child.

If you are concerned a child is at immediate risk out of school hours, you should contact one of the following:
