Update from Head of School
I take this opportunity to say what an amazing job our parents are doing at home. I must emphasise that we should be realistic about the amount of work our pupils are completing, and that it is very important that parents and pupils do not become anxious about this. It is evident that there is a real sense of pulling together in the community and we are here if you need to contact us. Keep posting you new experiences for Mrs Castrey, it's fantastic to hear from you all.
Keep up the good work!
Take care and stay safe.
