Guide to Home Learning


Google Classroom - how to access and submit work

Students who are home studying have a number of resources available to them to help support their studies during this current period.

Students who have been in school have been issued with workbooks which provide students with revision, activities and feedback. For students who have not been in school packs are available for collection from Reception while the school remains open. If students have been self-isolating a representative can collect these books on their behalf.

The workbooks can also be used in conjunction with the Golden Knowledge Organisers. Alongside completing the questions in the books they have been provided with, students can complete activities similar to those of prep.

Read, Say, Cover, Write and Check as per the further guidance below.

In addition, online materials are available via the school website. These are listed within the appropriate year group for your student under the Home Learning buttons.

It is suggested that, wherever possible, students follow their normal school timetable to ensure they complete a variety of tasks throughout the day.

Should students have a question about their learning they should refer to the materials they have been given, their Golden Knowledge Organiser or email for specific subject support at:
