Early Years Home Learning During Absence From School

If our pupils are at home due to Coronavirus restrictions, our priority is to ensure that every child will continue to have access to a high quality education; with daily teaching and challenging activities which will support their development across all areas of the curriculum.  Details of our approach to Remote Learning can be found here.

In addition, the teachers and staff at Marjory Kinnon have developed some online learning resources for our pupils.  You can watch them on our YouTube channel.
