Particularly in a time of remote learning the need for staff training to be up to date to ensure the protection our pupils is paramount, especially with the launch of the Oasis Horizons project where every child in the Academy will be issued with an iPad to use in the Academy and at home."One year on – A primary principal shares her experiences over the last 12 months
