We are committed to ensuring that all pupils receive the best possible education under the current circumstances.
Teachers will be setting daily work for pupils to complete each day from Monday 23rd March. This will include some online work as well as projects and work to do offline. It is expected that all pupils will complete approximately four hours worth of school work each day, including reading for enjoyment and other offline activities.
Teachers will check in periodically that pupils have completed the work but will not remain online for the whole day. Work will normally be set by 10am. Pupils should expect one literacy, one maths and one afternoon subject activity for each day. Teachers will be checking that pupils are accessing the work and will follow up with a phonecall if pupils are not accessing the work for any reason.
