Home Learning Update from Mr Peake:
Home Learning Term 5 - Years 7, 8, 9, 10, 12
Thank you for your continued support with your child's home learning.
Now that we have had a period of time to adapt to a new routine, we wish to suggest minor changes to provide increased structure to what needs to be studied and when.A
As from our return on Monday 20 April, we ask that all students study the subjects that they would have had on that day in accordance with their school timetable. Therefore up to five subjects should be studied each day. This does not mean students are required to follow the timings or order of the lessons yet it will provide guidance as to what they should be working on each day. If the assigned tasks are more than one hour in length, these can be continued over a sequence of lessons/days.
With regards to students receiving feedback on the work completed to date, our Heads of Faculty are helping us to find a reasonable, pragmatic and manageable protocol for this and we will be releasing more information after Easter.
I wish you a happy and healthy Easter.

Integra Home Learning
Integra Schools and South Gloucestershire Council are pleased to launch a new online resource to support parents, carers and teachers. This resource brings together a range of free and easy to access online activities and learning for children of all ages, and is clearly grouped into subjects and topics, such as English and Maths.
They hope to develop this resource over time, creating a valuable tool for parents, as well as teachers to use when normal school attendance is disrupted.
