For those staying at home during these difficult times, we are committed to supporting the continued learning progress of our pupils. Every week we will send out learning packs via Marvellous Me or email with specific class learning for your child to do with you. Don’t worry if you can’t get through all of the work. Similarly if you need more, let us know. In addition, there are links below which can be used to support parent/carer-led learning, including a guide to having fun!
