Dear Parents/ Carers,

It has been wonderful seeing so many pupils joining the online lessons with their teachers and peers and collecting work packs from school; there has been some lovely pieces of work produced across all year groups. We have been very impressed with the story entries for the writing competition so far and we are looking forward to receiving more! Although this is a difficult time with a lot of new things to learn, we would like to thank you for your ongoing support, you can find the breakdown of our remote learning offer by clicking the link below.
