Frog issues resolved
Our remote learning platform, Frog, is back online. Lessons will continue to be set as per student timetables.
You may be aware that our remote learning platform FROG has not been working since Saturday afternoon. This means that your child will not be able to access her online learning. Whilst we are working on a fix, it seems likely this will extend into Monday. Please note this does not affect children using Google classroom. There are details of other online learning platforms she can use if required on our website authorised by the DfE. We will update you as soon as it is fixed. Apologies for the interruption to learning this is causing. Rest assured we are working really hard to resolve the issue.
Google for Education (for some students)
The DfE have brought together a list of online educational resources to help children to learn at home. These websites have been identified by some of the country’s leading educational experts and offer a wide range of support and resources for pupils of all ages.
Access the full list, including resources for SEND below:

NHS Guidance for parents - 8th April
When your child is ill or injured it is very difficult to decide if/when to call
your child’s GP, NHS 111 or go the Accident and Emergency Department
(A&E). During the current situation and while the government is asking
everyone to stay at home, it can be confusing to know what to do.
Here is some guidance:
