After half term the live lesson timetable will continue. Here are the timetabled sessions for 1-5 June. Students will receive more details through their Google Classrooms.
We wish all of our students and families a good half term break.
Relationships & Sex Education (RSE)
From 1 September 2020, regulations come into force which require all schools to follow statutory guidance on the provision of relationships education (primaries only), relationships and sex education (secondaries only) and health education (both). Trusts need to consult on the content of their policy and I am pleased to attach the relevant document for your information.
Under current circumstances and the closure of schools, it is not possible to hold a face to face consultation meeting. However, we are happy to receive written feedback and comments. If you wish to provide feedback or speak to a representative from your school, please contact in the first instance and this will be arranged for you. Please advise your name, your child’s name, the school they attend.
We look forward to receiving your feedback.
We have had some students and parents asking for help with accessing some of the features of Google Classroom. To help with this we have produced some videos talking through the features of Google Classroom. These can be found on the link below:
The remote learning live timetable for 11-22 May has now been emailed to students. They will find out more about these sessions through their Google classrooms.

Dear Year 9 Parents and Carers,
As you will be aware, due to the school closure, we were unable to run the Y9 Options Evening as scheduled. In order to run the Options process remotely this year, we have produced the website below, which holds much of the key information and dates for how the process will run this year. Please can you spend some time checking the website with your son or daughter.

Since the school closure in March, all curriculum delivery has moved to remote learning and this is being provided through our online Google Classroom platforms. For students with no internet access, paper packs of work are being provided.
The majority of work is set by teachers at the start of the week, with a deadline to complete for the end of the week. This allows for flexibility in when students wish to complete their work. We know some of our students then loosely follow their school timetables to help them manage their time, others are preferring to work through tasks in a different order, completing one subject before moving on to another. Both of these approaches are fine. We are adapting the amount of work set to suit working from home. It is important students do not feel overwhelmed by the distance learning and we encourage all students to contact their teachers if they have any questions or concerns.
To supplement our distance learning, we are pleased to release our live online lesson timetable. These sessions will not be delivering extra material, but are an additional opportunity for students to contact their teachers and classmates by coordinating a time to log in at the same time to discuss the ongoing Google classroom work. The precise content of the sessions will be dependent on the subject and year group. It is anticipated there will be question and answer sessions, additional explanations of tasks and some use of live ‘video’ delivery through Google classroom facilities. Students will not be disadvantaged if they are unable to log into the sessions, and the Google classroom work will not be reliant on these sessions.
Students will be contacted directly through their Google classrooms about upcoming sessions, and we would encourage all students to participate where possible.
Below is the timetable for the first two weeks:
24 April 2020
We hope you are well, managing to stay safe and your children are not missing school too much! We have had some constructive feedback about the volume of work, the scheduling of when work is set and that students would like to see their teachers (although they probably wouldn’t admit it!). We are working on how to develop these areas and others.
Below are some important updates as we progress through the next period of lockdown.
Remote learning expectations
Please can you support us by reading the expectations document below. The expectations have also been shared with staff and students. As we continue to learn the best ways to engage students in remote learning, it is important we all understand what is expected of everyone involved so that we can communicate effectively and provide the best possible experiences for our young people.

‘Live’ sessions with staff
We are currently producing a timetable that will allow students to ‘meet’ teachers using Google Meet within the Google Classroom. These sessions will not be taught lessons to begin with but will be an opportunity for students to ask questions about work and clarify their understanding of how it should be completed. These sessions are not compulsory for all students to join and are there as an extra layer of support for students.
Students have been emailed a Google Meet Code of Conduct form which must be completed before attending a Google Meet.
The timetable for these sessions is available on the school website and has been emailed to students school Google accounts. The links to the meets will be published in Google classrooms.
Google meet app can be downloaded to phones/tablets/PC or laptop.
Google Guardians sign up
We are setting all our work through Google Classrooms so that students know where to find their work. Within Google Classroom there is the ability for parents/carers to receive daily or weekly update emails showing work set, work completed and any work that has been missed as well as announcements from within Google Classroom. You will receive one email summarising all of the subjects your child studies. If you are not yet signed up please complete the form below and the Learning Leaders will ensure you are signed up as quickly as possible.
We would recommend that you select daily updates as we are encouraging staff to spread the setting of work throughout the week. Selecting the weekly option will only give you a summary at the end of every week.
