Home Learning

Home learning expectations

TeamsMicrosoft Teams is the main point for accessing homework. Teachers will use this platform to communicate with their classes and for uploading relevant lesson resources. On Microsoft Teams, students should regularly check ‘activity’ and ‘assignments’ to ensure that they are up to date with the work set by class teachers.

In the event that a student finds themselves working from home due to self-isolation or a lockdown, information in the ‘Learning from home booklet’ relating to accessing online resources may prove useful to students parents and carers. The booklet also contains information on who to contact should students experience problems when working from home. Click the link below to download a copy of the booklet.
