pdfProviding Remote Learning - Parents Information

 

Please click the Primary, Secondary and 6th Form links on the homepage or the 'Parents & Carers' tab above to see the weekly home learning plans for each department. 

We understand that the majority of pupils will not be able to access remote education without significant adult support and we want to work with families to deliver an accessible and manageable remote learning offer. Your feedback on the home learning resources will help us to develop our approach. 

In addition to the weekly home learning plans, below you will find links to other resources we hope you will find useful. These include: 

  • Learning resources

  • Communication resources

  • Social and emotional wellbeing resources

  • Sensory and physical resources 

  • Covid-19 resources

  • Online safety resources
