Following the government announcement on the 4th January, schools have been directed to move to remote learning, for most students, up until the February half-term. During this time, we remain open for the children of Key Workers and for vulnerable children. Students should follow their normal school timetable when working remotely during this period.
Teachers will post work for each lesson by 08:30 each morning through Show My Homework. Live lessons will be scheduled to supplement the set work and will run through the Microsoft Teams platform. When live lessons are provided, they will run at the same time as they normally would on each child's current school timetable.
When work is set each morning, independent tasks are shown in green and for Years 7 to 9, any live sessions will be referenced in red. The reference will show at exactly what time a live lesson is scheduled to take place that day. This is shown in the diagram below. Students can then access their Teams lessons either through their Microsoft calendar or through their class Team; both of these options are explained in detail in the Microsoft Team section below.
We recommend that students use the 'To-do list' within Show My Homework, rather than the calendar view. This has the following benefits:
