Learning at Home

Dear Mums, Dads and Carers,

Below are some resources to enable each year group to continue their learning at home. 

With every best wish for our community to stay safe in these difficult times,

Jane Gascoigne, Headteacher

Microsoft Teams - Online Learning Platform

Covid-19 meant we had to implement a way for children to continue their learning online with very little time - we are pleased that we implemented an impressive online learning platform which can be accessed securely by individual children - with your support!

Please continue to be patient with us as we roll this platform out to you. We are learning too! The learning guide should be self explanatory. If issues do arise, please email us and we will try to remedy these as quickly as possible.

Parents will need to email their class teachers in order to get their child’s log in details. This way we are keeping everything as secure as possible. Staff email addresses are on the Class Blog pages on the school website.


Please find the link for our online learning platform in the user guide attached.The purpose of this document is to explain how to access the online learning portal that all pupils at Combe Down Primary will be using for home learning during any Covid-19 school shut-down.

Thank you so much for your patience and understanding at this challenging time. As I was thinking about resilience, several quotes came to mind which I felt may sum up how many of us are feeling at the moment. I am sure many of you will recognise the quotes and find them helpful.

Nelson Mandela. "Do not judge me by my success, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.”

Albert Camus. "Sometimes carrying on , just carrying, is the superhuman achievement."

Joshua 1:9. I repeat, be strong and brave! Don’t be afraid and don’t panic, for I, the LORD your God, am with you in all you do.

Philippians 4:13. I am able to do all things through Him who strengthens me.

Helen Keller. “Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.”

We know that you are all showing superhuman strength at the moment. Thank you.

Kind regards,

Jane Gascoigne

Head teacher
