What parents and carers need to know about learning during lockdown

Parents/carers have been sent a number of communications to keep you informed of all the details regarding the closure of schools during this second national lockdown.

All students will be taught online via Google Classrooms from 6th January 2021 and will follow their normal timetable. School will be open for children of key workers or those who are considered vulnerable.

The MLD Base in Orchard Lodge will be open as usual.

Please find here links to all the information shared with you – this page will be updated regularly.

Update to Remote Learning from Mrs Rachel Edmunds, Deputy Headteacher, Senior

Above is a link to the internet matters organisation. This offers advice over managing screen time in our current circumstances. The guides are age specific and are aimed at parents, however I would encourage students to look at this also as the messages are coming from a well-researched source – even better, look through it as a family together and discuss screen time and routines.
