Guidance for students working and learning at home

Getting Help

Thank you for making the time to support your children in accessing the work being set by teaching staff. If you have any problems with this, please let us know via enquiries.

Guidance has been issued for when a class or larger groups of students are required to work remotely due to partial school closure.



Assignments are to be set according to students school timetables.

Live Sessions

Either teaching live or feedback/discussion sessions with whole group or smaller groups live.

Live sessions to coincide with students existing timetables.

See full ‘QEII Provision for Online Teaching and Learning Parents’ for details on live sessions guidance.

Accessing Google Meet

Assigning Work and Feedback

Assignments should be set via Google Classroom, irrespective of the platform to be used.

Work is to be assigned following students school timetable, with a timely hand in date.

A hand in date is to be used so students can use the Google Classroom 'to do list' to organise themselves.

Written feedback on assignments will be given on a minimum fortnightly basis for KS3/KS4 and a minimum of weekly for KS5.


Students will complete a range of activities focussing on organisation and wellbeing.

Subject teachers to keep a record of students not accessing assignments or attending live sessions.

Each subject area has outlined the content of their courses across all years as well as highlighted useful websites and online resources on their curriculum pages. This can be accessed via Subject Information.

Each of your child’s classes also has an online space on Google Classroom where they are able to contact their teacher.

Please see instructions attached for how to use an XBOX or PlayStation as an alternative home learning device -
