School office to contact parents to ensure a test has been taken and to make sure that parents know to communicate test results to admin@wheldon.wakefield.sch.ukIf a child is entitled to income-related free school meals then a food parcel will be delivered to your house. If a child is vulnerable in any way, a DSL will ensure that appropriate agencies are notified and arrange for regular safe and well checks via a phone call from the DSL (record on CPOMS). If a child does not engage, the class teacher is to call the parents to discuss obstacles and support. 

The initial response to any isolation will be to provide children with home learning materials alongside their class stationery pack (this might need to be delivered). In the case of whole cohort isolation, lessons will be uploaded to Marvellous Me and priority children will have packs delivered. This measure will afford teachers a short time to prepare their remote learning resources. Remote learning will be delivered as previously through daily emails.

Dough Disco 


'Dough Disco' is a fun activity for the children which combines the use of play dough with a series of hand and finger exercises designed to improve fine muscle control. The movements develop children's fine and gross motor dexterity, hand-eye coordination and self-esteem. 



Change4Life and Disney have teamed up to bring you new Shake Up games inspired by Disney and Pixar's Toy Story 4 and Incredibles 2, and Disney's The Lion King and Frozen. These 10-minute bursts of fun will really get your kids moving and count towards the 60 active minutes they need every day 


Once a lesson is completed we ask that parents email admin@wheldon.wakefield.sch.uk to inform us and the teacher will then check and mark off the learning.
