Flexibility of Learning:

 We understand at Huncoat that home learning is difficult. Parents might be working from home and they need the space, time and resources to work. Siblings at high school are required to use technology throughout the day or may be studying for GCSE,A Levels. Often finding a quiet space can be difficult for your child to learn. And when we have technology it often fails. We understand that our children may have to work around these pressures to complete their learning and we are here to support all our families as best we can.
