Work for students during school closure:

In these unprecedented times, we are committed to providing work and feedback to all of our students in order to allow them to make progress.  This is inevitably very different to what students would experience if in school, but time has been spent preparing suitable work and procedures for providing feedback to students.

Each department has prepared their own approach to this and shared it with students.  The majority of work will be accessed through Show My Homework and we have shared login details with students this week to ensure they, and you, have access to view the work and resources that have been shared.  Some departments have also referred students to shared areas, where work has been saved for them to access.  

The onus is on students to complete the work set and submit it, where required, for feedback to their teacher. Show My Homework provides students with the ability to send messages to teachers and for teachers to reply, so dialogue will still be possible.  We expect students to be proactive in using this facility.  Please bear in mind that, due to Priory still being open to students and their own childcare constraints, some teachers may not be able to monitor SMH during normal school hours.

Please do also continue to access the online resources listed below (more will be added in due course) and encourage your child to take this opportunity to read widely.

Maths

All students have access to HegartyMaths and can use this to keep up with their Maths work.

HegartyMaths Website 

HegartyMaths Home Support Guide

If\when the school closes then we will be able to set specific tasks for our groups to complete but with the volume of individuals who are off then it will be an excessive task to set specific work for every student self-isolating. Students should therefore be using their books to identify areas to focus on and use the search bar to find these topics to work on.

 

Science

Students should use their school login details to access foldr, and then within the Y: shared drive select the appropriate folder for their year. Within this folder they can find summary sheets to revise topics they have already covered.

Additionally students can use their Educake login to set themselves on the topics covered.
