John Clifford Primary & Nursery School ‘Be your best. Celebrate success. Together we will be successful.’




It is now the priority of all staff, to provide daily work for the children via the school website, while the school remains closed. For the remainder of this week activities will be posted on the Year Group class page, Work can be accessed by clicking on the pencil icon above Home Learning.


As from Monday 12th October, those Year groups who have received training and QR codes for Seesaw, will be able to use this learning platform. Unfortunately, not all classes have had this training, as the plan was to roll out the new learning platform by the end of this half term. For reasons of parity, if both classes have not got access to Seesaw, then learning will remain on the website. Thank you for your understanding.
