IMPORTANT: ONEDRIVE

Please allow OneDrive time to load before reporting an issue. On slower connections, it can take some time before the page correctly loads to our school site.

Years 7, 8 and 9 Online Learning

Students in Y7-9 will be provided work by teachers – click on the link below. It would be useful to watch the short animation (below) to familiarise yourself with what is expected. It’s important to stress that the most important thing is that you are safe and well. Try to complete work from all of your subjects, not just your favourite subjects!

Y7-9 online learning info animation

The main points to note are as follows:

  • Teachers will provide a summary plan of what you need to complete for each half term. You will see how many lessons are required to be complete for each subject over the half term.
  • You will complete one single document for each subject over the course of the half term – you add to this every time you complete a lesson.
  • The summary plan will show you when you need to send your subject document to your subject teacher for assessment/feedback
  • Work should be accessible by mobile devices as well as computers. If you don’t have computer access, you can work on paper, then take a photograph of the work and email it to your teachers.
  • If you do not have internet access – let us know! We may be able to get you hard-copy resources for core subjects. Email [email protected] or send a message via the school MyED app.
