Coppice Valley Primary School

Learners for Life

Coronavirus Support

School is now closed until further notice. The government wants all children to stay at home.  Vulnerable children and the children of Critical Workers may access childcare at the Red Kite Learning Trust Hub at Rossett Acre Primary School. If you think your child needs this childcare, you can apply for it at info@coppicevalley.n-yorks.sch.uk

We hope you find this page useful in these challenging times. 

Keep checking back on this page, we will be adding to it regularly.   

The best advice we can give you is to have a routine. Children, and adults, thrive on a regular schedule so stick to a routine. This means regular times to get up, get washed and dressed, meal times and bed times. In between those times, do some school work, do some chores, get your daily exercise, rest and play together.
