Should you have any questions, please do contact your Learning Coach in the first instance via Edulink One.

Please do also take a moment to look at these webpages which give guidance on keeping your child safe online.


How are learning resource being provided?

Year 7 & 8

Resources are being provided in Workbooks that are published fortnightly on our website (or they can be posted home if requested via your Learning Coach). Students are also recommended to access the resources available via the websites listed above. In addition, some subjects are providing additional enrichment tasks via Google Classroom, where appropriate, as listed on the Key Stage 3 webpage.

Year 9, 10 & 12

Based on student feedback, resources are now provided on a Monday via Google Classroom for the week. Unless otherwise stated, this should be ‘handed in’ via Google Classroom for feedback and further guidance.

How can I get support from my teachers online?

Teachers are available online during your normal timetabled lessons unless stated otherwise in the table below. In all cases, please be patient if you don’t get an immediate response as they may be busy supporting another student and unable to respond immediately.

Why am I getting an email from my Learning Coach each Monday?

So we can keep in touch with everyone during this period, your Learning Coach will touch base with you each Monday via email to check you are managing your work and also to check on your general wellbeing. Do make sure you reply to put their mind at rest, otherwise they may want to contact your parents to check everything is okay. You can also contact them at any point if you have anything you need help with and they will be happy to support.
