Bedminster Down School

 

Home Working

From Monday 27th April our teaching and learning will be delivered through a platform called Microsoft Teams. You should have received a letter from the school via E-Mail on Friday 24th April which sets out how to use this new system. We believe that this platform will significantly improve the quality of the provision that we can offer during the school closure.
