Wherever it is safe to do so according to our Covid-19 Safeguarding Policy, we are encouraging pupils to return to school. However, to reduce community transmission and keep pupils and their families safe, most pupils are following our remote curriculum.
Although we recognise that learning at home may not be as straightforward as learning at school, especially when families are already coping with unusual pressures, we are providing remote learning, in line with our curriculum, to all pupils.
We are offering as full a curriculum as possible by delivering workpacks, stationery, materials and equipment to pupils’ homes and providing laptops and internet access to pupils who don’t already have them. Daily lessons are delivered as prerecorded videos or on digital platforms and every lesson is followed by a live session with the subject teacher. This gives pupils the feedback and one-to-one teaching they need and gives families the time and flexibility to fit it all in.
And we continue to prioritise the safety and wellbeing of our pupils with continuing safeguarding, free school meals and weekly pastoral and therapeutic sessions for all pupils.
KS4 pupils can access lessons and teacher support in all core subjects including maths and English, as well as their chosen vocational subjects. KS3 pupils can access a range of lessons and teacher support, including maths, English and STEM.
All our online lessons share a similar structure:
|A short video with instructions, explanations and examples.||A set of questions, a section of a workbook or an activity to complete at home.||A chance to ask questions and get feedback from your teacher.|
To access your lessons open the remote learning page and click on the links in the weekly timetables.
You will need to use your personal login to access remote learning. For technical issues relating to resources, equipment and meetings or passwords and login details, please contact Ruth Majid on 01474 332 897 or via this contact form:
