iPad launch – Thank you for the support with this, it has been a positive and successful roll out for S1-S6. Thank you to families for following the guidelines and providing the relevant permissions. We will be working with youngsters over the coming weeks as they discover the learning power the devices bring over their years at School and beyond.
