Learning from Home During Academy Closures March 2020
There is an expectation that all of our children will continue with their learning at home and teachers will keep in contact with families to offer support. We will be putting updates on pupils’ learning on the academy website each day. If you have a query please email to the firstname.lastname@example.org account and someone will advise you.
