We have taken full advantage of our own short experience of remote learning at the end of the Lent Term, taking encouragement from the hugely positive response and learning lessons where necessary. 

We are so impressed with how the school has handled everything and all the effort the teachers have put into the online learning.M Stephenson, Year 1 and Year 3 parent
