The following information the COVID-19 pandemic has and will continue to impact on the smooth running of the school for the foreseeable future. During this challenging and difficult time, the staff have the interests of pupils education at the forefront of their minds. The school has worked with Microsoft Teams on ensuring an online platform (to access the full curriculum set by the class teachers) is available to all pupils in the event of a school closure, localised lockdown or national lockdown.
Below is a ‘step by step’ guide on how to access work that is suitably challenging, matched to pupils ability levels and set by their normal class teacher at the school.
Additional guidance on Microsoft Teams can be found at the following webpages
In addition to this platform, Oak National Academy is also available and is a free and easy to use and contains a pre recorded video lesson. The website link is: https://classroom.thenational.academy/
To access the lessons and resources follow the heading ‘classroom’. When you click into the classroom, you will see there are two options:
Schedule: Use this to access the lessons for that given day.
Subject: Use this to pick individual lessons or topics from a particular subject (if you prefer).
The secondary curriculum consists of the following: English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities, RE (Key Stage 3 pupils only), Art, ICT (Computer Science) and PSE.
