Resources for Home
I would like to recognise the generosity of the website and app providers who have made these resources available during the COVID pandemic. Please note: Parents are advised to investigate these sites/apps prior to signing up to them so you are aware of the agreements. Walkaway Primary School is in no way connected to these sites but have provided them to you as a resource.
Providing these is in no way saying schools are closing. Advice will be given around this should it be needed in the future.
Activities and links will be updated as more opportunities arise.
