Remote Learning

Online Provision for Isolating Students

It is essential that students who are self-isolating continue to make progress through the curriculum. With this in mind, work will be set using Google Classroom. This may be found via the ‘login’ link on the school website and also through the Google Classroom app that is available through iOS and android app stores.

If you are unable to access the internet, please contact the school to request a work pack.

These resources are intended to provide self-isolating students with the same level of learning as they would have had in the classroom.

While it is more difficult to monitor student progress during remote lessons, we must stress that students should attempt any tasks set. Gaps in knowledge will be addressed on the students’ return through low stakes testing, questioning and formal assessment.
Our teaching staff will respond to any student queries on the work that has been set.

Using Google Classrooms

In order for your Son/Daughter to access work, they must log into Google Classroom using the class code with the appropriate class drive folder.

If you have any issues with logging in to Google Classroom, please contact our IT support team at helpdesk@ald.merciantrust.org
