Key Communication

Email Communication

We are understandably receiving a large number of parent emails at present. We will respond to each email in turn, as soon as is feasibly possible. However, due to the volume of emails please, bear with us at this time.

If you are emailing us to let us know that you're not receiving the letters that we email out, or receiving them late, there is unfortunately nothing we can do about that. This is likely to be to do with your internet provider/server, or could quite simply be down to the sheer volume of internet traffic at present.

We strongly advise that parents are regularly checking the "Key Communication" section on this website.

Below are a range of instructions to support your child's home learning. In addition, on each page on the website, are icons to select to link to various subject specific platforms. For further information on how to access these, please email your child's subject teacher directly for support.
