Home Learning

In the event of a Bubble Closure or National Lockdown this page will be used to facilitate home learning.
We have had to change the way we are delivering education this year to our students and find new ways of working.  When there is a lockdown, for the majority of our pupils learning has moved on line.   We use the Virtual Learning Environment –TEAMS and DB Primary. All our students also have access to Microsoft Office 365. DB Primary can be accessed from our website on the homepage 
 
If your child has been affected by the pandemic, please do contact the class teacher or support can be found using the websites below:
