New Home Learning Resources!


Oak National Academy:

You can access 180 lessons a week for every year group from Reception through to year 6, through a new online platform, Oak National Academy. The enterprise which has been set up by teachers and is funded by the Department of Education, will provide video lessons for students, with each lesson coming with a corresponding quiz and worksheet. According to the Ambition Institute, each lesson will last one hour and the portal will provide the equivalent of three hours of lessons a day for primary students and four hours for secondary.


BBC Bitesize Daily Lessons:

BBC has also launched its own star-studded education service today, which features David Attenborough, Oti Mabuse, Sergio Agüero, Danny Dyer, as well as lessons from 200 real, working teachers. You'll find daily lessons for homeschooling in Maths and English for every year group, as well as regular lessons in Science, History, Geography and more.

This page has been set up for parents, staff and children to find out about how West Twyford are keeping your children safe. We have sub-pages for each phase containing work for children to do at home whilst the school is closed or you are self-isolating. These will be populated in the coming days.


You can help slow the spread of Coronavirus in the following ways:

  • Wash your hands often - with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or an alcohol-based sanitiser soap. See our video below about how to wash your hands effectively!
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • If you feel unwell with a high temperature or dry cough, stay at home and self-isolate for 7 days. All members of the household should also self-isolate for 14 days to lower the risk of spreading Covid-19.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue then throw it in the bin,.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces at home. 


If you are worried about your symptoms, please visit NHS 111 website or phone 111. Do not go to your GP or other healthcare environment.
