Home Learning-Remote education during Covid restrictions on attendance

Please access your child's remote learning by entering the password given to you by school. You will also receive direct emails from your child's year group with details of their live 'zoom' sessions. If you require any support with home learning, please email your child's year group email and a member of staff will be happy to provide help or point you in the right direction. Emails will be 'manned' during normal school working hours. 

If your child has no access to IT at home, please contact us to discuss the possibility of borrowing a device during remote learning, or being provided with a 'paper' pack of activities. We will do all we can to support you at home.
