Here are some key online resources that may help you with learning at home during the current school closure.
The Recovery Curriculum
As we progress through the coming weeks, we feel very strongly that all of our students be supported to process their experiences over the past 3 months and begin to recover in order to move forward. With that in mind, our Well being Team and Pastoral Team have developed a guide to explain the approach to learning both for our home-learners and school based-learners. I hope that you will find this useful in explaining what form of learning and support will be offered.
