Learning at Home





This page is designed to support you in the event of bubble closures.

St Francis School – Remote Learning Plan


We will continue to celebrate any home learning via our Facebook page on a Friday, as it is a good way of motivating and celebrating the efforts of our children who are having to complete their learning at home.

Additional Resources

In addition to specific year group work, that will be allocated in the event of a bubble closure, please see the general resources below that you may want to use at this time.  As always, if you have any questions, please just get in touch with us.
