Half Term Notice
Monday 25th May - Friday 29th May 2020
There will be no Home Learning Tasks uploaded to Teams during the week beginning 25.05.2020. Thank you for all your hard work, your teachers will be back online on Monday 1st June. Enjoy your week off and stay safe.
We have been working hard to streamline our home learning provision. Please find a timetable below, which we suggest you adopt for your child.
All students have an Office 365 account and they have been invited to a Microsoft Team for each of their subject areas. Each Team contains a scheme of activities to be completed by the student. We encourage you to look at this with your child.
All students will need to sign in to O365 using their school email address.
For help accessing O365 please select the following links:
If you require further assistance or have any issues with the 'Home Learning work' please do not hesitate to contact us :
KS4 & KS5 pupils will all be contacted regularly by subject teachers with their individual work that they will need to complete via Microsoft Teams.
We will continue to communicate to parents and pupils via ClassCharts. Please ensure you are checking your accounts regularly.
MathsWatch and Kerboodle are external websites. These learning tools will be accessed by thousands of students across the country. With such high traffic to these sites you may experience issues with logging in and accessing resources. If this is the case please try to complete work for another subject.
Remember the importance of reading, picking up a book to read during this period of home learning will be highly beneficial.
