This page has been created for parents to help them support their child with remote learning. There are four documents that may be of interest. A short description of what is in each document and how it can be used is detailed below, (the links are blue). 

Have you received a Partial or Non-Engagement text?   If you have received a text about your child’s partial or non-engagement the first thing we would encourage you to do is speak to your child. You should check that they have completed all tasks and activities for all subjects that week. Weekly tasks are posted in the General section of each class Team . Work posted here is essential to support progress in the subject and is a key measure we use to determine a pupil’s engagement. Please discuss this work with your child and encourage them to complete and return all work. It is also important to encourage your child to ask their teachers questions if they are unsure of how to complete any work set (this can easily be done through MS Teams or during live lessons). If following the conversation things are still unclear or there are issues you would like to discuss with the school please complete the form below. Responses submitted via the form are regularly reviewed and this is the fastest way to receive a response. Once you have completed the form a Guidance Teacher or Depute Head Teacher will get back to you as soon as they can.
