Home Learning

As you will be aware, following the government announcement, The Newbridge School will remain closed to the majority of students from Tuesday 5th January 2021.

The closure and move to online remote learning is in line with the guidance provided by the department for education. The school will remain open only to vulnerable children and to the children of key workers.

Remote learning
It is important that when working from home that students have some structure to their day. Therefore, we expect them to follow their normal school timetable. All work will be posted on google classroom as in the previous lockdown. All students will be familiar with this learning platform.

Students need to complete the tasks and submit their work in the format requested by their teacher. Subject teachers will be online during the day, and will follow their own timetables to and will endeavour to respond to any emails and request for help as soon as they possibly can.

There is plenty of work for children to do so please encourage them to log on and do their very best. Furthermore, a letter will follow later in the week which will give details about a fantastic new learning platform called GCSEPod which will enhance and develop the online learning for years 9 and 10.

Our aim is to support effective academic progress for all of our students regardless of whether they are in school or learning from home.

Work for all subjects and year groups has been placed in the Google Classroom by specialist subject teachers.

Once in the virtual classroom, you need to click on ‘Classwork’ to find the work.

This work will mirror the work being taught in the classroom at any given time. All work completed should be shared online with the teacher via the ‘hand in’ tab on Google Classroom.

This information is intended to provide clarity and transparency to students and parents or carers about what to expect from remote education where national or local restrictions require entire cohorts (or bubbles) to remain at home. 

Student work will be set on google classroom, it can be accessed via an iPad, Tablet, Laptop, PC, Xbox and most other devices with a web browser.

Home Learning can be found in these classrooms.
