All students are currently following their normal school timetable and are taught via a range of approaches suited to the specific learning and curriculum content, just as they would normally get if they were in school. This is a combination of (but not limited to) live Teams meeting lessons, recorded videos and tasks set through Teams or OneNote. Teachers are available throughout the lesson to support the students in their learning whether that be through the live lesson or through the chat feature of Teams. For years 7 - 10 in each subject (where there are three or more lessons a fortnight), one lesson is a dedicated independent study lesson for that subject, giving students time to consolidate the recent learning in that subject. Registers are taken during every lesson and Heads of Year are in contact with parents if they are concerned about a student’s engagement or attendance.
