Learning at Home

Learning at Home

We understand that this is a difficult time for all of us and it will take time to adjust to learning at home. We want to reassure pupils and parents that we are dedicated to providing continuity of learning while at home and we are doing everything we can to make sure this is a smooth transition for pupils, parents and staff.

We do not expect parents to become teachers or for pupils to mirror their normal school day. We will provide resources and work to ensure that learning continues but flexibility is key. We know this can be an anxious or stressful time for our young people. Below you will find resources for the Junior and Senior School.

Junior School

Junior School learning will be facilitated through our online platform, Schoology. All parents/carers have been emailed guidance on how to log in to their child’s Schoology classroom. You can log in to Schoology here

Please note that we do not expect children to be working on a device all day during school hours. The school day is a mixture of work, play and relaxation and so should the home learning day. Build in plenty of break time, time in the garden if possible and most importantly, family time. Make the home-learning work for your circumstances.

We will continue to revise what we do to ensure that your child receives a dynamic, engaging and challenging diet of activities during this period.
