We are currently in the process of completing training using the TEAMS platform.  Children will become familiar with this program over the next couple of weeks so they are able to access it from home and join in the 'live lessons' if we have to isolate a bubble of children.  Our policy when joining in with lessons remotely HERE

In addition, we are continuing to use SEESAW for parents and children to communicate with their class teacher(s) and to complete homework on.



For any information on how to connect to either of these platforms, please ask class teachers.


REMINDER - Parent consultations will take place this half term and Teachers will be contacting parents by phone, if the class teacher has not been in touch please phone 01429 275239 to request a call back.
