Resources for your child

We know that having your children at home can be a challenging time, so we have provided resources for your child on the Pastoral Care Canvas page, which they can all access. This is not to replace the distance learning programme provided by your child’s teachers, rather to support our students with interest pages and activities for them to enjoy whilst at home. Some may be great to continue through the Easter holidays. There is also a weekly activities grid for students to try.
