Dear parents and guardians,

As we come to the end of our first extraordinary week of online Teaching & Learning, I would like to thank all those parents (and students) who have given such positive feedback. We fully understand the pressures you now face and below is some advice to help and guide you. The Gooseberry Planet online safety information also has a link to the BBC for some great advice.
Students will be sent a questionnaire asking for specific feedback so we can improve our online teaching service. We are still learning new 'tricks'!

It is very important your children keep up with the work set and if they don't finish it in the lesson time, they are expected to finish it in the afternoons. Even though after their lesson where the teacher is available for the whole lesson, they can email the teacher with any questions and they will get back to them or include the support in their next lesson.

Exam advice will follow when we have clear instructions from the exam boards.

Your teachers are now also trying to come up with extra-curricular activities to keep your children occupied out of lesson times. These are optional but please encourage your children to take part and enjoy them.
