Our Values: Home Learning

In order to maximise the opportunities available for leaners at home due to illness, exclusion or any other absence the resources on this page are to be used when no specific work has been set by the classroom teacher. The websites and work listed on this page are suitable for Years 7 – 11 as the websites offer differentiated levels. Students should use their own judgement as to their current level and hence the most appropriate task to complete.

Please keep a record of the work that you have completed to show to your relevant teachers upon your return to lessons or for your reintegration meeting.
