Coronavirus – Useful Information

We will use this page to share useful information and resources that you may find helpful in navigating the coronavirus pandemic.

Online and virtual learning can be found on year group ‘Teams’ pages and in Year group pages in the Secondary & Primary sections of this website. There are additional resources on our home learning website, which can be accessed via this link: https://appletonrevision.weebly.com/. We will share more ideas for home learning via our social media channels – timetables and remote learning plans will also be regularly uploaded to your child’s Year Group pages found on this website.
