September return to school

posted 20 Jul 2020, 03:16 by sarah keeble

Letters have been sent out to parents outlining the changes for returning to school in September.  These letters can be viewed under our Covid 19 - Sept 2020 Return to School section of the website or accessed here.

Letting us know you would like your child to return to school

posted 3 Jun 2020, 02:39 by sarah keeble   [ updated 3 Jun 2020, 07:32 ]

Please complete our new online form, specifically for parents of children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 6, if you wish your child to return to school. You will need to complete our online form by the Wednesday prior to the week you wish your child(ren) to return.  The form is accessible via the following link:

Children in Reception and Year 1 must take up their place on a Monday for the 4 days offered – we cannot add children part way through a week or on a part time basis as we will need to ensure we have sufficient staffing in place to maintain safe ratios. Parents/carers of Bramford children in Year 6 must advise us they wish to take up their place by the Wednesday of the week before if this is for the Monday/Tuesday group or the Thursday/Friday group.

Accelerated Reader at Home for Students and Online Library

posted 27 Apr 2020, 04:05 by sarah keeble

Our schools subscribe to Renaissance, which provides the Accelerated reader scheme that many of our children use at school. During this time of school closures, Renaissance has made some of their resources available for free at home:

MyOn reading library
Any child can use this digital library of thousands of books, without the need to log in.

Go to:
KID ZONE on this website
Click on MyOn Reading Library
Start reading
Browse by category. Click on the icon underneath the word ‘browse’ to filter for fiction or non- fiction.  Choose a book. If you would like to know more about it before choosing it, click on ‘info’. You will see a recommended age group. Then click on the ‘i’ and find the ATOS number (this is the
number that is normally written on the spine of a book in our school library and children will know what level they usually read).

Accelerated Reader book quizzes
Children who have Accelerated Reader books and usually take quizzes at school can use this to continue taking quizzes at home. These will check their understanding of what they have read.  Teachers will be able to log in and see which quizzes they have taken. Children can take a quiz
on a book they have read from the MyOn library, a book that they have at home from the school library, or any other book that they have read at home (check whether there is a quiz by going to the AR bookfinder website).
Go to:
KID ZONE on this site
Accelerated Reader (choose Bramford or Somersham)
Log in and find the book you have read by entering the same details as you would at school.

Coronavirus Information for Parents and Carers

posted 13 Mar 2020, 08:08 by Emma Burgess

A letter has been sent out via parent mail today which contains information regarding coronavirus. As you may have seen from the news yesterday, the government’s guidance on the coronavirus has changed from the ‘contain’ phase to one of delaying the spread of the virus.

Text Box: If your child has any of the following symptoms they should remain at home  for 7 days: • a high temperature (37.8 degrees and above) • and/or a new, continuous cough Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.  If your symptoms worsen during your stay at home period or are no better after 7 days contact NHS 111 online at 111.nhs.uk.  Official advice as of today is that our schools will remain open and your child should continue to attend school unless they feel unwell. If your child is unwell, report this as you would normally.
