There is now additional food support available for families and individuals who are experiencing difficulties in accessing food due to financial difficulties or self-isolation. Details below:
Sumdog claims that it personalises Maths through adaptive learning and multi-player games that pupils love – and we agree!
At ACE, every child in KS2 has a Sumdog account. In fact, children are currently enjoying a ‘National Holiday Contest’, where they are competing against others from across the UK.
Teachers will have provided children with the required login details.

Following the Government announcement yesterday, and after careful consideration with the School’s Governing Body, it has been decided that school will close for the Christmas break a day earlier than planned, making the last day of term Thursday 17 December 2020. As many of you will be aware from your child’s class bubble collapsing, we have had a recent increase in numbers of positive tests within our school community and the aim of this earlier closure is to reduce the risk of pupils and staff having to self-isolate over Christmas and hopefully enable as many families as possible to safely enjoy the Christmas holiday as they have planned to do.
Staff will be in school on Friday 18 December to complete planning and preparation for the forthcoming term.
We look forward to welcoming back the children on Wednesday 6 January 2021.
Due to a positive COIVD-19 test result we have unfortunately had to collapsed several bubbles:
– the Reception bubble and one of the OOSC bubbles – children need to self-isolate to Thursday 3rd December inclusive and can return to school on Friday 4th December if they do not have a temperature, persistent cough or loss of/change in smell or taste.
– Classes 3A and 5W need to self-isolate to Monday 7th December inclusive and can return to school on Tuesday 8th December if they do not have a temperature, persistent cough or loss of/change in smell or taste.
– Class 3L needs to self-isolate from now until Thursday 10th December 2020 inclusive, even if they do not have symptoms. Your class teacher will be in contact to share with you the learning for your child to undertake whilst they are away from school. The date your child can return to school is Friday 11th December 2020 unless they start to show symptoms.
A letter has been sent to all children who are included and if you have any questions please email email@example.com

During the pandemic and the lockdowns we have been continuing to receive food from FareShare, an organisation that aims to save good food from going to waste and redistribute it to front line charities and community groups. Here is a sample of some of some of the amazing food we receive each week – all perfectly good food that was being thrown out for crazy reasons!
Can you identify all the different foods?
Have you got any recipes that you would like to share with us made from the FareShare food?
Perhaps your children could help write the recipe up and maybe add some photos?
We will put any recipes we receive on our ACE Cooking Blog
We’re sorry to say that due to a positive test result children and staff in Reception and 6A bubbles should self-isolate until Wednesday 4th November.
The following letter has been sent to parents/carers of pupils in RS, RW, RWC and 6A:
Dear Parents/Carers of RS, RW, RWC and 6A
I am writing to advise you that a member of our school community has tested positive for COVID-19.
We have followed the national guidance and have identified that your child has been in close contact with the affected person. In line with the national guidance your child must now stay at home and self-isolate until Wednesday 4th November 2020, even if they do not have symptoms. Your class teacher will be in contact after Half Term to share with you the learning for your child to undertake whilst they are away from school.
We are asking you to do this to reduce the further spread of COVID 19 to others in the community. If your child is well at the end of the period of self-isolation, then they can return to usual activities.
Other members of your household do not need to self-isolate unless your child starts to show symptoms of COVID-19. The symptoms are:
- a high temperature – this means they feel hot to touch on their chest or back; and/or
- a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or three or more coughing episodes in 24 hours; and/or
- a loss of, or change in, your child’s normal sense of taste of smell (anosmia).
Please be vigilant for these symptoms and if your child starts to display any of them, it would then be necessary for all other members of your household (including anyone in your support bubble) to self-isolate for 14 days.
If your child shows any of these symptoms they should not attend school for at least 10 days after the onset of symptoms, and everyone else in your household should self-isolate for 14 days. Your child should also be tested for COVID-19, ideally within the first five days of having symptoms. Please see the NHS.UK website for more information on testing: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/testing-for-coronavirus/ask-for-a-test-to-check-if-you-have-coronavirus/.
If you are concerned about your child’s health, please refer to the NHS 111 website or telephone NHS 111 or your GP. https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/check-if-you-have-coronavirus-symptoms/.
Please see the link to the PHE ‘Stay at Home’ Guidance:
The safety and welfare of all our staff and children remains our top priority. We continue to undertake thorough cleaning of the whole school and a deep clean will be carried out in the appropriate areas of school following this positive case.
If you would like to speak to someone, or have any further questions, please email the School Office – email@example.com.
With kind regards
