We understand these are challenging times. The strain that managing home learning, caring for younger children, working from home and running a household can put on a family is huge.
We, as a team, are here to support you. We will be making regular calls to families to keep in touch and see if there is anything we can do to help. We also welcome your calls and will work with you to support you and your family.
Take care and stay safe.
