Home Study - Weekly Rewards

Home Study RewardsLinked to our PROUD reward system, this week saw the return of our home study scheme to reward and boost student’s efforts for completing the work set by teachers on our learning platforms. Many students will be familiar with our weekly rewards programme that was started during the summer term lockdown, although it will be new to our Year 7 students. Every week that home schooling continues, there are over forty prizes up for grabs to reward and motivate students. The first rewards will be published today and we will highlight the winners in next week’s newsletter.
Year 7 and 8 students - aim to be one of the top 10 learners in each of your subjects for a chance to win a £5 Amazon voucher in a weekly draw. There are eleven subject prizes to win each week, with congratulatory emails sent to the top ten students in each subject acknowledging their hard work and effort.
Year 9, 10 and 11 students - aim to be one of the top 10 students in each of the subjects that you study for a chance to win one of seven Amazon vouchers each week – one £5 prize for each of our seven faculty areas. Again, congratulatory emails will be sent to the top ten students in each subject acknowledging their hard work and effort.
Good Luck and keep up all the hard work that we are seeing across our learning platforms.
Remember; every learning opportunity counts!

Remote Learning - Daily Registration

During this period of Remote Learning we are asking our students to self-register every morning between 8.00am and 10.00am, so we are aware they are present online and ready to start their live or recorded lessons.
Remote Learning - Daily Registration
Please remind your children to go to their Year Group Google Classroom (not their registration group) - Year 7; Year 8 etc. each morning, and complete the Google Form that is at the bottom of the daily message. This is important to help us monitor engagement and ensure students are accessing the work being provided. We are also setting a daily quiz question with a variety of PROUD points as rewards for the first three correct answers drawn randomly each day.

Virtual Parents’ Evenings

Virtual Parents’ Evenings – Spring TermThis term we are moving our parent evenings online, as it is not possible to hold any face-to-face meetings.
The School Cloud system makes use of a simple appointment booking system and incorporates a special video platform, allowing parents and carers to have one-to-one conversations with their child's teachers to find out how they are progressing. Appointment times with teachers are booked in advance and the appointments will be conducted via video conferencing, without the need to download any apps or other software.
A School Cloud How to Guide is available HERE.
Please make note of the following dates; the appointment booking window will open for a period beforehand and these dates will be fully advertised in advance.
Year 10 – Thursday 21st January
Sixth Form – Thursday 28th January
Year 11 – Thursday 11th February
Year 8 – Thursday 11th March
(This will included Pathways information regarding subject choices for Year 9 study)
Year 9 – Thursday 25th March

School Cloud Registration details for the Year 10 Virtual Parents’ Evening were sent to parents and carers this week; the booking window is now open and closes at 4pm on Tuesday (19th January).
