Uniform Expectations 2021 – 2022

Online Learning 

The government has instructed all students to work remotely at home until at least February half-term.  Children of key workers and those identified as vulnerable, including those who do not have access to a digital device at home should attend school as normal.

Our remote learning offer will be taught using Microsoft Teams and all students have been shown how to access this through their school account.  For additional guidance and to watch a step-by-step video please click on the Home Learning tab above.

Student registers are taken at the start of each lesson and if students are absent, parents and carers will be contacted.  Where necessary, home visits will take place.  Please note that attendance to online lessons is compulsory.

Live lessons will take place at the following times: session 1 from 9.00am – 9.55am, session 2 from 10am – 10.55am, session 3 from 11.15am – 12.10pm, session 4 from 12.45pm – 1.40pm and session 5 from 1.45pm – 2.40pm.  Please note there is a 5-minute rest break between sessions to allow a small reduction in screen time and so students and teachers can join new sessions.

All students should follow their normal timetable.
