Over the past few years, digital technologies have served an increasingly important role in your child’s education.

Whilst the need to access online lessons from home is rare now, there are some instances when this might be necessary. In addition, our academy digital strategy, with every child being loaned a Chromebook for use at home and at the academy throughout their time with us, means that blended learning is a core part of your child’s education and therefore we want to ensure that all parents and carers have the most important information to hand. We have compiled some responses to the most frequently asked questions as well as key information on our expectations regarding blended learning in this ‘Online Learning Guide for Families’.

With our developing blended learning provision, we are also using an increased variety of educational technology in the classroom and at home. In the booklet you will find a glossary of the tools we are using, and some links to additional resources, with explanations of how your son/daughter might be using them to develop their learning. You will also find guides and links to videos showing how students can access the Google Classrooms and any Google meet live lessons. 

We hope that this information is useful and that it leaves you well-placed to continue to support your son/daughter throughout the course of this academic year. If you have any questions about the online/blended learning provision currently in place, please contact your son/daughter’s form tutor or college team via the established communication paths.
