Home Learning

In the event of a Bubble Closure or National Lockdown this page will be used to facilitate home learning.

We have had to change the way we are delivering education this year to our students and find new ways of working. When there is a lockdown, for the majority of our pupils learning has moved on line. We use the Virtual Learning Environment -TEAMS. All our students also have access to Microsoft Office 365.

If your child has been affected by the pandemic, please do contact the class teacher or support can be found to help here
