Parents/Carers check out our class dojo page for all the latest videos and photos of your child learning all about Manchester.

We are always happy for you to contact us on Dojo if there's something you would like to celebrate that your child has done at home; if you've misplaced your ICT logins; if you need some support from us or if you have any questions/queries/comments you'd like to share with us
