Other Supports for Learning Across The Curriculum

Our school has set up Google Classroom for all pupils to support learning through this period of school closure. The following websites provide free access to resources which will support learning in literacy, numeracy and in other curriculum areas.

Please note that teachers have also developed home learning packs which can be picked up from school to support learning without the use of technology.

The pupils all have accounts with Education City and Language Nut which can be used to support learning across the curriculum.
