Our Home Learning Plan supports pupils who are unable to come into school or in the event of a school closure. The main tool to support Home Learning is the Microsoft TEAMS application. Microsoft TEAMS is free to download. Below are details on how to download and access TEAMs onto any device.

Your child will be invited to join either a class or subject TEAM and will be able to access work or will be directed to work. The main focus of pupils learning in TEAMS will allow pupils to start activities straight away that will sustain them for a number of days and weeks. The class teacher will be able to check this work if it is uploaded to the TEAM.

Should the emergency closure of the school last for a longer period of time, the Microsoft TEAMS application provides the opportunity for teachers to set assessments and assignments. These will be set in the “Assignment” section of the Class TEAM or Subject TEAM. Pupils will receive a notification on their device every time an assignment is set with a date for submission. Once submitted the teacher will be able to provide feedback.

Please note that that all pupils are entitled to download Microsoft Office onto 10 devices. This allows them to access word, powerpoint, excel etc. Instructions on how to download follow below.

 If pupils do not have wifi or a device at home they will be provided with a Home Learning Pack (paper copy)

We hope these arrangements provide easy access to pupils and help with any interruption to our young people’s learning
