Dear Parents, Carers and Values Academy students,
I hope that you and your families are well and staying safe. Although the restrictions have been lifted, and the majority of adults have been vaccinated, people are still contracting the illness and hospitalisations are rising.
Should any student have to stay at home for a period of isolation, please see below for resources that can be used to continue learning, in addition to being able to login top o Google Classrooms. Teachers will also continue to send work to you throughout this period
If you have any issues accessing Google Classrooms, please contact me and I will be able to support you.
