Remote Learning
Throughout this challenging period, there will times where we have to act upon the advice given by PHE and close bubbles due to close contacts of confirmed cases within school. On these occasions, you will be directed to both your child's class learning page and Classdojo where you will be able to see work set and videos uploaded by the teachers to support learning at home.
