Remote Learning

Please find below remote learning guidance.

Mrs Catherine Gisby (Assistant Headteacher - Teaching and Learning) is our lead on all matters relating to remote education.

Remote Learning Resources - Academic Year 2020-21

If case your child is unable to attend school because he/she is having to self-isolate or because another member of the household is having to self-isolate, we have produced term-by-term guides for each year group and for each subject to allow students and parents to follow the curriculum as effectively as possible from home.

You can find the resources for each of Years 7 to 11 below by clicking on the Year Group underneath the relevant term heading. Sixth Form students will have work provided directly by their teachers using their class M365 Team and will know exactly where to locate the work they need to do.

TERM 1 (SEP/OCT 2020) TERM 2 (NOV/DEC 2020) TERM 3 (JAN/fEB 2021) TERM 4 (MAR/APR 2021)
Year 7 Year 7 Year 7 Year 7
Year 8 Year 8 Year 8 Year 8
Year 9Year Year 9 Year 9 Year 9
Year 10 Year 10 Year 10 Year 10
Year 11 Year 11 Year 11 Year 11

Should we move to a period of rotas - where certain year groups are in school for a period of time and others at home, with the year groups swapping every two weeks - students will be able to access recorded and part-live lessons using M365 Teams and will be able to access learning resources through their M365 account as well as on Show My Homework (Satchel 1).

Guides on how to join Teams and Zoom meetings, as well as safeguarding protocols for live lessons, can be found here:

Tips for Remote Learning for Parents

Any student who does not have access to a laptop or similar device at home may contact the school in confidence and we will do our best to support using the devices which we have been given by the Department for Education.

This page will be updated regularly and at the start of each new school term.
