Hello from Meredith and Isambard

Dear Parents and Carers,

I wanted to connect with you in a different way as I am conscious of how much we are asking you to read online so I have sent my latest update via a loom presentation, please click on the link below. I discovered this resource at the weekend, I hope you are able to open it. I'll try and make my image a little bigger next time!

At the bottom of this email, you will find links to support services the Government, Portsmouth City Council and the BBC are offering.

Take care,

Mrs Carroll

Headteacher
