Learning from Home

Learning from Home – 1st June 2020

As we start a new half term, tasks and learning activities will continue to be set for students on ‘Microsoft Teams’ with a note included on SIMS Parent/Student App. In response to the recent parental home learning survey, we have amended the way that home learning is assigned, so that the frequency and amount of learning activities for students is streamlined. As from Monday 1st June, we have asked teachers to set work using a timetable (see below) so that students and parents do not feel overwhelmed by the volume of work.
