Remote learning from home will start again via SeeSaw for children in Reception, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 from Tuesday 5th January. For children in Nursery, remote learning will be via Tapestry.
If you are normally entitled to benefit-related free school meals, we can offer packed lunches to be collected from school on a daily basis between 12pm and 1pm from the School Office. Please email headteacherLRPS@gmail.com or call 0191 267 4315 to place orders.
We will contact families with social workers and those who have children with an Education and Health Care Plan to offer you a place in our provision.
If you are classified as a critical worker and would like your child/ren to attend our provision, please contact us by emailing headteacherLRPS@gmail.com or calling 0191 267 4315 to request a place.
