Working from home when isolating
In the event of full school closure or partial closure, meaning students having to isolate at home, we will provide live online lessons, where they can access learning remotely if they are well enough. All work will be set on MS TEAMS and details of how this work will be provided are shown below.
HOW TO ACCESS WORK
To access a live lesson, students should sign into their MS TEAMS account ready for registration/tutor period at 8:30am. Students can access these lessons through their MS TEAMS calendar (yellow arrow) and/or their class team (green arrow).
During these lessons students can complete the following:
- Record the subject, title and key words for the lesson on a Word document (or paper if students prefer)
- Watch the lesson and use the chat function to communicate with the teacher
- Complete activities set by the teacher during the lesson
- Complete any homework set by the teacher
- If accessing a remote live lesson is not appropriate e.g. a practical lesson in Technology, work will be set on MS Assignments and students will be directed to this work
To access lessons in isolation instances (2) and (3), where a whole class or whole year group is isolating, students should sign into their MS TEAMS account ready for registration/tutor period at 8:30am. Students should then follow the steps shown above for (1). Students can access these lessons through their MS TEAMS calendar (green arrow) and/or their class team (yellow arrow).
If students are isolating individually at home, they can ensure they keep up with the taught curriculum by using the United Learning and Oak Academy lessons that have been created for learning at home. Students should use the link below to access these lessons. Knowledge Organisers are also extremely useful (every KS3 student has a paper copy of these) and can be used with the activities that are available on the website.

This link contains lessons in each subject that students can use. The topics link to the topics students are currently studying. Students should select the topic they are studying from within each subject area. https://curriculum.unitedlearning.org.uk/ . Students should use their school log-in details to access the lessons and select the Pupil Curriculum (green arrow) when accessing these lessons.
2. Knowledge Organisers
Please find below a link to the Knowledge Organisers that are used in all subjects. Students can view their knowledge organisers for each subject and use the instructions and videos to learn about, and revise topics.
