We know how vitally important it is that every one of our students is able to engage in our excellent remote learning provision during times of closure, and our significant homework and home learning offer in more usual times.
This page contains key links and information to support everyone with learning at home.
Our remote learning offer
We are using Google Classroom as the platform for all of our remote learning. Students access Google Classroom using their in-school login details.
We have provided an overview of our remote learning offer in this letter.
Our remote learning offer was shared in more detail at the Parent. Carer and Staff Forum meeting on 19 January 2021. Take a look at the presentation (slides 13-25) for more information.
Finally, we have developed robust contingency plans for remote education to ensure that students receive high quality teaching regardless of whether they or their teacher are self-isolating; you can also see our whole-school curriculum map to see how the curriculum in Years 7-11 has been amended to reflect the situation caused by school closures. We also have an accompanying Remote Education Behaviour and Child Protection Policy.
You can visit our Stars of the Week page to see what terrific learning has been taking place across the school.
If you are having difficulty accessing our remote learning offer because of not having access to a computer and/or the Internet, please let your Head of Year know. We are continuing to work with our partners to provide devices to help every student engage in fantastic remote learning.
