Now we are required to close schools to the majority of pupils, please use these links to continue to support your child's learning at home. This page will be updated regularly. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me (mshepherd@hazlehurstschool.co.uk).

Any activities that you would like to share and celebrate, please email to me and I will put a selection on the website. 

Thank you for your continued support.

Take care and stay safe!
