Covid 19 Key Documents for School Reopening September 2020

Home Learning

If we need to continue children’s education at home we have implemented a variety of ways for pupils to access educational resources and support from their class teacher. We would like to encourage parents to work together with their child to support them during this time and thank you for your help.

Below you will find a document outlining the various home learning strategies we have put in place and also instructions for parents on how to access the google classroom, our virtual learning environment.

Below you will find some useful documents to support you at home.
