Dear Parents and Carers,
Please be advised that resources to support your child's learning at home are now beginning to be uploaded to our website. These can be found on the below link:
Please bear with us whilst staff prepare work and we upload to our website.
Please find below a suggested timetable and website links to some work activities for students to complete if they are now staying at home or in self-isolation. We would recommend to try to encourage your child to do some work each day. When students return to College they should bring any work with them to share with their tutor so we can see what they have been up to!
Please see Thriftwood's YouTube page to see various videos and messages from our staff!
