LEARNING PLATFORM

Our Home Learning policy gives details of weekly and holiday home learning. However, if the school is closed for a prolonged and unexpected period of time we would provide learning opportunities via our website. Links on this page will give children a chance to practise key skills but some will also allow class teachers to point pupils towards specific lessons and resources. 

In addition, the class pages on the website will also contain information about pupil learning.

Please look out for extra messages on the school Jotter app.
