Useful websites and home learning

In light of the current situation faced by families across the country we have put together a page of useful 

links that parents and children may want to use to continue the learning at home. 

If you need any help with passwords or access then please email us on:

curriculumsupport.richardwakefield@deferrerstrust.com

We will endeavour to try to help and try to respond as soon as possible.  Please appreciate that we may not be able to help with all issues remotely.  

The year group pages (on the left) will contain specific activities for each year group to complete at home during any closures.
