Our Homework Policy sets out our expectations for learning outside the school day and be accessed on our Policies page.
Where a class, group or a small number of pupils need to self-isolate, or local restrictions require pupils to remain at home, we are ready to offer immediate remote education.
We will use Google Classroom as our platform for setting and assessing home learning, as well as communicating with parents/carers.
Further information about our Remote Learning Strategy and guidance on how to use Google Classroom can be found below.
