Home Learning during COVID-19
We appreciate that keeping children engaged in their learning whilst at home is not going to be easy so we have prepared content for your child that can be completed both independently or with adult support. Please email your child’s class teacher with any queries or if you would like share any of your child’s learning. We're always on the end of an email, so please make contact with us. Everything that you do with your child will make a difference.
Although we don't know what the next few days, weeks or even months will look like, we are here for you and your children and will try our hardest to support in every way that we can.
Keep safe and we look forward to welcoming your children back soon.
