  • Most lessons will be a ‘live stream’ with your teacher, combined with some individual tasks.
  • Some lessons and subjects may not lend themselves to streaming but alternative learning tasks will be in place.
  • We understand you may not be able to log in all the time, due to sharing technology.  All ‘live streams’ will be recorded, so you can view later, if necessary.
  • Teachers have already emailed you if you need to pick up work, for example: Art folders etc. 
  • Teachers will try to limit the number of attachments you are expected to use, as well as the need to print lots of work.  
  • The teaching staff and the pastoral team will be monitoring your engagement in remote learning and will contact you and your parent/carer if we have any concerns.  Equally, please do contact the school if you have any concerns.  Please be mindful that not all colleagues will be in school every day but we will endeavour to return your calls as soon as possible.
