Useful Links to Educational Resources

This page gives parents links to resources on the web that we think are useful to support learning, and may be of educational benefit to pupils.

The list below carries brief descriptions and indications of the target age groups. Many of these sites have sections covering a variety of areas of the curriculum.

Of course we have no control over the content of these sites: they are all suitable at the present time, but that is no guarantee for the future! We would ask parents to advise us of any material that is unsuitable, and the link will be removed from the list.

(Note that it is the responsibility of parents to determine whether the links provided are suitable for their own children to visit. St Mary's NS does not endorse any of these sites or their sponsors or contents.)
