Learning from Home

While the school is in closedown, students are expected to access work and activities via Show My Homework for the foreseeable future.

Work will be set according to each student's timetable. It is important that students check off their tasks upon completion, so their 'to-do' list does not become too congested or confusing.

The tasks set will not require students to print any worksheets, but teachers may request that work be submitted via Show My Homework or by directly emailing their teacher.

This short video shows how you how to submit work to your teacher using Show My Homework:

Teachers may provide feedback using Show My Homework or directly to the students' school email address. If students need to contact their teacher, this can be done via the 'add a comment' feature on Show My Homework. Teaching staff will not respond to emails sent from personal email addresses.

Mr Beeson's Fitness Challenge

While the school is closed, it's important to keep active and to help with this, Mr Beeson will be setting an easy fitness challenge that can be completed at home each week. He'll release a video on Monday demonstrating the challenge, and setting a score for students and their families to try and beat during the week.

eSafety whilst Learning from Home

Whilst students are learning from home, they are likely to be exposed to the internet more than they would be during the school day. We appreciate that this may be of concern to parents and carers and would like to share the following resources from the Department for Education which will be of benefit in helping parents/carers keep their children safe online:

  • Internet matters - for support for parents and carers to keep their children safe online
  • London Grid for Learning - for support for parents and carers to keep their children safe online
  • Net-aware - for support for parents and careers from the NSPCC
  • Parent info - for support for parents and carers to keep their children safe online
