Distance Learning

When a ‘lockdown’ was declared and Prestfelde closed to all but children of key workers last March, that special Prestfelde education was not abandoned. Instead, our staff set to work in order to deliver a top class programme of distance learning. This is a ‘time capsule’ of that monumental challenge, a marvellous effort which engaged pupils, staff and parents in more than a few technological challenges as well!   Click below for:
