Furzedown is a friendly, happy and stimulating place to learn. We have a strong sense of community and we ensure that our children feel safe and nurtured.
Above all we want our children to have a variety of experiences during their time with us, to be willing to try new things without fear of failure and to become independent, confident and open minded young people. Read more.

We are reaching out to every nursery and Primary School across the UK to offer our support at this difficult time.
If you are not yet familiar with our service, Sooper Books is a trusted online library for 4-12 year olds bringing award-winning children’s stories to schools and families across the UK at the touch of a button. Our service is currently being used by thousands of Families, Schools and Councils across the UK.

We recognise this is an extraordinarily challenging time for millions of families and the disruption to schooling is (and will continue to be) immense over the coming weeks and months. We simply hope that our small gesture will give Schools and Families a little bit of fun and educational value at this difficult moment.

Dear Parents/Carers

As you know school will close today.

As an emergency provision, we aim to provide childcare for those workers that are critical to the country’s response to COVID 19.

Please do not send your child to school on Monday unless we have contacted you and offered you a place next week as announced by the government.

Many of you may technically qualify but we ask you to consider whether your job is crucial to the country’s response to COVID 19 and whether this provision is essential.   For example if you have already been told by your employer you can work from home, it is unlikely you need this provision.

In order for the closure of schools to be effective, we mustn’t have more than 20% of our school roll on site. This is a maximum cap and we will try our best to offer as near to this number of places as we can dependent on our staffing.

We have asked for families on Free School Meals to let us know if they want to pick up a packed lunch bag in the mornings and we will only be able to supply those of you who have responded.

We have up loaded a lot of links onto our homework pages which you access with your passwords and we have also uploaded links onto the front page of the website that do not need passwords.
We will keep you updated as we know more. There is enough work on the web site for 7 weeks we will be update it further if this is necessary.

Please email me if you have further questions.  head@furzedown.wandsworth.sch.uk

Keep safe.
