School Closure

 

For the timebeing, school remains completely closed to all those with whom no individual arrangements have been made. From June 15th onwards we will be inviting into school small groups of Y10 & Y12 students for some face-to-face time with their teachers.  More details about this will be shared in due course. Whether they are in school or not, it is important that our pupils understand the continued importance of social distancing, and keep the health and wellbeing of everybody at the forefront of their minds.

For those pupils who are not in school, our teachers will continue to manage their learning via email.  If access to a desktop or laptop is limited at home, pupils may wish to use a mobile device instead.  We would by no means encourage anyone to complete all of their schoolwork on small screens, but this may prove helpful for short periods of time.  A lot of the work which is set will require the use of Microsoft products.  For the benefit of anyone who has not previously used these on their mobile device, our Computing department has prepared the following guides:

How to download and use Microsoft Outlook on a mobile device

How to download Microsoft PowerPoint to a mobile device

How to download Microsoft Word to a mobile device

Please prioritise the health of your family above everything else. May God keep you safe.

Mrs Lynch, Headteacher

Guidance on working at home

It is important to stay safe online, and pupils are advised to remind themselves about how to do so by visiting this website.  It is also important to think about how you are sitting.  This nhs leaflet offers good advice on this.

Where possible, pupils are advised to stick to their normal timetable.  Avoid spending more than an hour at a time on any one subject – remember that we would rarely expect anyone to work for that long without pausing to review and discuss progress. Avoid favouring certain departments, as this will cause significant problems in the long-run.  Before you send any work to your teacher, read the instructions one last time to make sure you are happy with what you have produced.
