Can our children video call their teacher?

Our SLT and IT Team are currently exploring ways in which we can use digital media platforms to support online learning and to ensure it is safe for all concerned. We are waiting on more guidance from the DfE to ensure we implement solutions that are secure and safe but this may take some time to roll out. Once a solution is in place we will update all parents and students as in these unprecedented times we want to ensure we can continue with teaching but we need to ensure it's inclusive and safe.

Can we have our teachers email address?

At this time we are not providing teachers email address as we are waiting for guidance as described above.
