What work should students be doing when they are unable to attend school?

Secondary short - Technology 2


Short Term Work

In this situation where a student is unable to attend school, work will be set by class teachers via school email or Microsoft Teams. However, it can take some time for teachers to arrange appropriate resources around their teaching commitments in school.

So, to ensure that students have something productive to do initially, please see the below information for some resources students should use. Not every subject is covered here, as not all can be set generally and be meaningful and productive.

If there are any issues, please do not hesitate to contact us during school hours and speak to your child's Head of Year.

Kind Regards,
Mr Ward
Deputy Headteacher


General advice

You will be using your weekly timetable to structure your day using Microsoft Teams for live lessons, pre-recorded lessons, message board and assignments for all the learning information you need. You will need to also check your student emails in your Web Outlook throughout the day.

  • Get up, get ready and have a healthy breakfast.
  • Log on to your device at 8.15am.
  • Log onto Microsoft Teams to check your correct lessons are in your timetable.
  • Use the start of the day to check and set your daily work and check your student emails in Web Outlook. 
  • Be ready for RISE time at 8.30am sharp.
  • Use Microsoft Teams for each period (including Form time) to find out what kind of lesson you will have and either join the lesson, or complete the set assignment/task.
  • Make sure you take your break times as you normally would at break and lunch time.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Watch what you eat.
  • Weather permitting get some fresh air outside, but safely adhering to COVID restrictions.
  • Let your parents/carers know what you have been doing and ask them for support if you need it.
  • Read for at least 20 minutes per day - this may be factored into Form time if there is sufficient time.
