School Closure

 

School is now completely closed to all those with whom individual arrangements have not been made. It is important that our pupils understand the importance of social distancing, and put the health and wellbeing of everybody above the enjoyment of social activities outside the home.

This term, our teachers are managing their pupils learning via email rather than by posting tasks on this website as they did at the start of the closure.  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.
