Remote learning

When pupils are required to move to remote learning, they should log into their tutor group Team at home at 8.25am each morning. Form tutors start a Team meeting at 8.30am, taking the register and checking that pupils are well. If pupils are ill, parents or carers must contact the school in the normal way.

The school day follows the normal school timetable. At the start of each lesson, pupils log onto their Class Team, teachers take a register and explain how the learning for the session will be structured. Our teachers choose the most effective means of delivery for what pupils need to learn, which will be whole class, group or independent work, for example.

We have made a series of tutorial videos to help you learn how to use the systems we use. You will find these below.

If you have any concerns, please contact your form tutor urgently. We all want you to do well and are here to support you.

Best wishes.

Mrs Lawrence

Deputy Principal

Installing Office applications

Whilst using Office works very well through a web browser, it can be useful to install the applications, especially if you are working on a mobile device.

The first video explains how to do this on a Windows or Mac computer.

The second video explains how to do this on an iOS device like an iPhone or iPad.

An additional video will show how to install this on an Android device. Coming soon!
