Loreto Library: Welcome

** NOTE TO TEACHERS : Additional online information resources to support content planning and creation **

A new Information Resources to Support Remote Teaching and Learning guide has been created to draw together resources that have now been made freely available to support content planning and creation. These are in addition to the resources to which the Library already provides access, found elsewhere on the site. The guide is being updated as new resources become available, so check back regularly.
