Homework Email Address

We have set up a new email address for all families to use to send homework projects into school.

The email address will be used to open the projects in school for your child to share with their class.  Please ensure that the title of the email clearly states your child’s class and name.


Important information:

  • Please note that we will not be able to print out any projects; this is solely for accessing them electronically.
  • The email address will not be used for any means of correspondence other than opening homework projects.
  • The admin address is not available for homework projects.
  • We are unable to open any projects sent in on a memory stick.

We hope that the curriculum booklets also inform you about what the children are to be learning about each half term and provide you with weblinks that can be accessed from home to support the children’s learning. These are sent out with the children at the beginning of the half term and can also be found on the website via the Key Stage pages.

More information will follow from the class teachers.
