Information and support for parents
While the school is closed due to coronavirus, the following links and downloads will allow your child to continue with their learning at home. Some websites may require personal passwords which have already been sent home with your child. If you go on Purple Mash, there will be new 2Dos – don’t forget to read the instructions carefully. If you hand in work on Purple Mash, you’ll get a message from Miss Edwards!
