Virtual Learning Resources
We want you to be able to access all the support you need while studying from home. This page explains how we will make available the resources you need.
All pupils have access to Microsoft Teams and you will find your classes, subjects or year groups are already allocated in MS Teams. There’s lots of study materials and lessons for you to access there. You can download MS Teams onto your devices at home and your mobile for free. View or download a guide on how to access email, OneDrive, Teams and other Office 365 apps.
Most departments will use Microsoft Teams to send resources to you. However, if there are files or resources we cannot get to you any other way there will be plenty of revision resources available to download from the link below for years 11,12 and 13 and lesson resources for year 7-10.

Please do remember our etiquette for remote learning and how we interact to support one another.
Home learning - guidance for parents
How will your child access virtual learning? Where will they sign in and how? All our students know this already and have been shown, but these guides explain to parents how it works. Please do email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any queries.
We are recommending creating a schedule for your son or daughter to follow during the period of school closure. Having a structure that they can follow each day will help them stay focused on their education and provide structure for you and your household.
We have provided a suggested schedules for different years below. However, we are very aware that this may not work for every household or for pupils of different ages. Creating a bespoke schedule together with your child can be a great tool to motivate, empower and focus them. It also allows you to plan in any activities that are specific to your household, such as looking after younger siblings or helping prepare food.

Adding reading to your routine
Making reading a part of your child´s daily routine can really support their literacy and wellbeing. You could read together, read out loud in turns. Your child can also read to a younger sibling. When reading with your child, try to keep the reading sessions fun and relaxed, use different voices, and try to act scenes. Ask questions and discuss the storyline, characters, language, setting. Guess and predict what is going to happen.
Email through particular success stories or moments to Mr. Opoku, Assistant Principal for Literacy email@example.com to ensure that your student is rewarded with Knowledge, Integrity and Resilience points when they return to school!
After finishing a book, your child can take a quiz on Accelerated Reader. Visit the Accelerated Reader website. Your child then needs to click ‘Student’ before entering their username and password. They should know this from school. If there are any issues logging onto Accelerated Reader, please contact Mr. Opoku on firstname.lastname@example.org. Download a 'reading at home' letter with other ideas too.
Need help accessing resources?
If you or your child are struggling with accessing resources please email email@example.com and we will get back to you asap. If your child needs further help with their work please email firstname.lastname@example.org and state the teacher/ lesson you require help from, and your query. This will then be forwarded to the teacher who will respond to you as soon as possible.
