How to support home learning
As we all find our way through this difficult and unprecedented time, we are aware that parents and carers at home may be anxious about how best to support their children while the school is in enforced closure.
On this page, we will seek to give you advice and resources to help you to manage your child/ren’s time at home productively, whilst also being realistic about what we can all hope to achieve during this time.
Remember – the school, and its staff, are here to support you. We have done our best to send children away with booklets and resources in the first instance to keep them going straight away.
During the school closure we will be supporting your child with their learning by setting work on our online platform ‘Show My Homework.’ Secondary pupils are already used to using this as it is our usual way of communicating homework. Pupils in the Secondary phase use their school email addresses and password to log into Show My Homework (they click the ‘log in with google’ button).
Parents of Primary and Secondary pupils are able to see all work set using a separate parent code. Log in letters with details for all parents and pupils have been sent home. You can log in using the website or the free app.
If you have any issues with logging into Show My Homework please see the guidance posted below (number 2). If you are still having problems please email firstname.lastname@example.org giving the pupils name and form /class and someone will get back to you.
