Kitchen Closed – this week.

Sadly, we have to close the kitchen for this coming week, due to Covid-19. Please come to school with a packed lunch instead. Covid has certainly arrived at our village school now and we've sent PHE's 'Warn and Inform' letter out to two classes this week.  For those who don't know, with staff shortages, we've also had to close the [...]

Lego kits needed…

We've started some Lego sessions at school but we're in need of some sets.  Before we purchase these (it'll soon mount up!) we wondered if there were any Lego sets unused on a shelf somewhere in our wider community that could be donated to school? We're looking for any boxsets really, but the age appropriate 5 - 12 would be [...]

Space Dome…!

What a wonderful day... Simon, from Callington Space Centre, brought the Space Dome to the chapel and we all had a visit throughout the day. We were able to sit back, even lie down, and have a 360° view of our planet, solar system, the space station and much, much more. Here's just a few photos of what we saw [...]

20/21’s Final Newsletter … issue 508

Well, we finally made it!  I’m quite surprised we managed to get to the last day without too much of a hiccup, especially when you hear about the Covid storm that seems to be brewing close by! This school year has certainly been the most difficult that I’ve ever had to navigate.  We’d already experienced a 6-month teaser in to [...]

That's Friday and Saturday for symptoms, and a positive result that could possibly be returned as late Wednesday, that you contact us please... at head@georgeham-primary.devon.sch.uk We would then [...]
