Remote learning

As you will have seen from all of the parent mail which has been sent out, our online remote learning has moved to Microsoft Teams. From Monday 18th January, all work will be posted on Microsoft Teams whereby children can access teaching videos, find their work for the day and even hand in their work virtually.

If you have any questions or queries about this, please contact the school office where help will be available.

Keep up the good work everyone, we are extremely proud of you,

The Lumbertubs Team 馃槉
