Parents Praise Remote Learning From The Painsley Catholic Academy

The Painsley Catholic Academy is delighted to have received almost 1,000 positive parent testimonials for its remote learning provision across all 15 schools.  The two high schools and thirteen primary schools were amongst the small number of schools who were able to provide remote learning in the first lock down in March.  Following the announcement of school closures this January, all the schools were up and running with their remote learning on the very next day.
