Home Learning

These resources have been made available to ensure our pupils are able to continue with their learning whilst schools are closed due to coronavirus.

Work for each key stage is set out in the tables below including some links to additional resources and activities that may be helpful. We will add additional resources as they are developed.

Tutors will contact you on a weekly basis to check on the welfare and progress of your child with their work. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the school.

Whilst staff have selected the resources provided, Westbury Academy is not responsible for the content of any external links.
