Tudor 'Home Learning'
- ensuring our partnership remains in school and in the home...
'The school has been exceptional during this year. The support on hand from the teachers has been fantastic, and the resources which we were provided with - such as workbooks - were gratefully received.
As neither myself or my husband work in the education sector, home schooling has been both rewarding and challenging. However, I am certain with all this in place, it has made our lives a lot easier.
We can see the hard work that everyone has put in throughout this difficult time, and are aware that there would have been a lot more implemented behind the scenes. For all of this we are very grateful our children go to Tudor.'
Use this section of the website to find your daily learning activities.
