Making our world a better place

Home Learning/ Remote Learning

Remote Learning

If a child is absent because they have tested positive for Covid-19, we will provide home-learning from the end of the first day of absence.  This may contain a mixture of  online and offline activities.  Details of this will be sent to parents via email.  Learning tasks and materials will be sent home by email or bundles can be delivered/ collected.  Children are only expected to complete these home learning tasks if they are well enough to work.

We are extremely happy to share with you that Menston Primary School has achieved Silver Award Status for the United Against Bullying Programme.
Our My Happy Mind theme for this half term is ‘Appreciate’. The Appreciate module teaches children to understand why gratitude matters and how we can develop gratitude as a habit. Gratitude is key to wellbeing and resilience and we’re all about making it a habit!
