Home learning

If your child is finding the home learning that has been set difficult, please let us know.  Your child's class teacher will be checking in with you and you can use the email addresses that have been set up for the current school closure.  You can access all year groups' learning on our School Website and you may find the work from a different year group more suitable for your child.  You can also contact me at office@furness.brent.sch.uk
