Learning at Home

Whether you are self-isolating or we are in a National Lockdown, your work will be provided for you using Teams. You will need to have access to the internet. Please contact the school if you need any support with this.

Self-isolating

If you are off school self-isolating work will be set for you.  You will find a folder for each year group and subject on the Student: W Drive on Teams. Here you will have access to 3-5 Core lessons for the topic that you are studying in school.  

National Lockdown

In the event of a National Lockdown, you are expected to continue to learn from home using Teams to access your work according to your timetable. This will be a blended approach which may consist of: live lessons, pre-recorded lessons, use of video, worksheets and independent study.
