It is important that we try to continue delivering high-quality education during periods of remote learning. Alongside uploading resources and lesson packs, setting quizzes, tasks, project work and assignments on a regular basis is essential to ensure that students attempt to engage with the work we provide. Learning from home can only truly be effective if students complete tasks and receive feedback from their teachers on assignments that they submit.
Along with the above and in line with our current assessment, feedback and marking policy, staff will aim to set, assess and feedback on unit tasks during this current school closure via MS Teams.
If you have any difficulties logging in, or handing in work via this platform, please contact a member of our IT support team via our school office: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Student Resources for Remote Learning
This list has been compiled by Home Educators and is meant for parents to use as suggestions for home study resources. It is not an exhaustive list nor a compulsory list for Home Learning.
Khan Academy /https://www.khanacademy.org/
Especially good for maths and computing for all ages but other subjects at Secondary level. Note this uses the U.S. grade system but it's mostly common material.
BBC Learning /https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize
This site is old and no longer updated and yet there's so much still available, from language learning to BBC bitesize for revision. No TV licence required except for content on BBC iPlayer.
Free to access 100s of courses, only pay to upgrade if you need a certificate in your name (own account from age 14+ but younger learners can use a parent account).
For those revising at GCSE or A level. Tons of free revision content. Paid access to higher level material.
Free taster courses aimed at those considering Open University but everyone can access it. Adult level, but some e.g. nature and environment courses could well be of interest to young people.
