Remote learning

What is remote learning?

If school is closed, students will need to continue their education at home - we call this remote learning. 

We want to minimise the impact to your child’s education and therefore we have a plan to make sure learning can continue.

How will we provide remote learning?

We will be providing teaching resources through a timetable of classes on Google Classroom. If your child does not have access to a computer/Internet, please email the school office

Most timetables will be the same as usual. There are modified Year 7 and Year 8 timetables available on their Google Classroom areas.

Advice for parents

On behalf of our teaching staff, here are a few ‘tips’ to get the best out of time at home.

  • Children should maintain their routine as much as possible.
  • Students should continue to follow the school timetable. They will already be familiar with this, so it should help support them during this difficult time.
  • Mental and physical health is really important - if possible, children should get some fresh air and exercise.
  • If you have a table/desk in a quiet spot that can be set up as a study area, this will help your child to focus.
  • We would encourage you to remove distractions during study time. Removing mobile phones, tablets etc.is a good way of helping them to keep on track.
  • Children can review the work they’ve done all year and make revision notes.
  • Reading is vital. Please make sure your child reads approx. one book a week.
  • There are lots and lots of online resources available – such as BBC Bitesize, GCSE Pod and other similar websites.
