As you are all aware, the decision has been taken to close all schools nationwide. As a federation, we are committed to ensuring your children's education is paramount in this difficult time.
So we have created a resource library to help facilitate your child's home learning. Below you will find a variety of whole school links and resources (suitable for all age groups). Also you will see there is a drop down menu (coming soon) that has a section for each year group that is populated with helpful links and resources. We have also added a reading challenge.
For further support, do not hesitate to contact us.
