Dear Parents/Carers, 

Whilst your child is accessing remote home education, please see some recommended websites below.  Some may be of support for your child's identified needs. 

If you have questions, please don't hesitate to contact the school office and either myself or your child's class teacher will call you back to discuss. 

 

Stay safe 🙂
