Our village school has remained open to the children of essential workers. Here is the latest update from school


A Thought for the Day!

Sometimes good things fall apart so that better things can fall together.

Home Learning

Thank you for all your efforts with home learning; the staff have been really impressed with the amount and quality of learning that children and parents are managing to achieve. On our website,, you will find a home learning sheet on each class page, as well as a video for the children to watch from their class teacher. Pictures of home learning are on the main page and other learning videos are being added on a regular basis. We are also uploading maths and English worksheets that you can use daily if you wish. If you require any assistance with home learning, please email your class teacher or Mr Gittins. The message from school remains the same: just do your best. You have not chosen to home-school your child – anything you can do helps and please don’t worry about your child falling behind.

Lockdown weather

Unbelievably, the sun has shone for 5 straight weeks now – please ensure, when you are taking your daily exercise or playing in the garden, children have sun cream and a hat. If key worker children absolutely have to come to school, they must wear sun cream and bring a hat and a water bottle.

Google Classroom

The Year 5/6 children will be trialling the use of Google Classroom for home learning over the next two weeks – please bear with us while the teachers get their head around how this works. Next week, we will be uploading maths, English and topic daily for children to complete. There will also be offline work that you can just view and then complete on paper – this doesn’t need to be handed in but feel free to email your class teacher as they love to see this creative work. Suggestions of other things you can do will still be on the home learning sheet, uploaded to the class pages of the website. If you haven’t received your login yet, please email and he will send it to you.


The Bolton-le-Sands Facebook page continues to engage, amuse and provide information in these difficult times. Please ensure you only mention your own children on this page, unless you have permission from other parents. Every Friday, at 3pm, we will be ‘going live’ on Facebook with shout outs to keep people connected: birthdays, general messages, saying hello to absent families, achievements – anything you want really. Please email messages to Mr Gittins – don’t write messages directly on the page.

Best wishes from all the Bolton-le-Sands Family!
