We are pleased that school has been able to reopen and we have welcomed all of our students back into school. However it is inevitable that there will be situations where students will need to work at home due to self isolation, either as an individual or as part of their whole class or year group bubble. Detailed information about the arrangements in this situation can be found in the Teaching and Learning Policy 2020-21: Covid-19 Edition which can be found at the bottom of this page.


Accessing Home Learning  

All year groups will access their work through Microsoft Teams, via Office365. Homework will also be set in this way too. The following video provides a step by step guide of how to access Microsoft Teams. 

When a student is required to self-isolate they will have remote home learning opportunities provided, this includes students who are off school awaiting a test result for themselves or a household member or because they have been in contact with a confirmed case of Covid-19. These students will have work set in line with the curriculum.

Each year group has an ‘Isolation Team’ set up which will contain curriculum related work for all subject areas. Individual students will be added to their isolation Team as soon as school are made aware that they are self isolating. Please refer to the 'Home Learning - A guide for students' document below for more details. 

Home learning will only include live lessons if the entire teaching set has received notification to isolate. A timetable of live lessons will be made available in the letters and documents below. More information about live lessons can be found here
