Emails

Whilst we further investigate platforms for sharing pupils' work, we'd like to open up out teacher emails.  This is an optional way that parents can send over examples of the work that their child has completed over the week.  Please use the emails no more than once a week, but we would love to see what our classes have been working on and we hope this will motivate learners also.  The children are welcome to put in their own message, however we ask that the email comes from the parent for safeguarding reasons.  Any shared work may be added to our Home Learning Gallery (click here for examples that have been uploaded already)
