Offsite Learning Guidance

Think U Know provide some really useful guidance on managing online learning at home that can be found here - https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/Support-tools/home-activity-worksheets/?utm_source=Thinkuknow&utm_campaign=f4fd0dd4ee-TUK_ONLINE_SAFETY_AT_HOME_05_05_20&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_0b54505554-f4fd0dd4ee-54973781

Whilst pupils are not able to attend school but are not unwell, it is really important for their mental health, educational progress and for the whole family's wellbeing that they have some structure to their day. We recognise that for some, these timetables may be too much and for others, pupils may want more. The most important things is to do something and keep active and not to worry if you are not able to manage everything that we put on the site, or if you want to go and explore further and do more. As this hub develops, our guidance and recommendations may change to suit the situation at the time, but for the moment we are recommending the following timetables/structures for our pupils each day that the school is shut - details of activities and resources are stored within year group folders for each week of the closure:
