Arrangements for Supporting Students’ Learning at Home
Although the school site will be closed, our teaching staff will continue to provide online learning experiences. We appreciate that this is not the same as face to face contact, but please be assured that we are doing everything we can to support students’ learning during this difficult and unprecedented time.
Teacher have been asked to set online learning opportunities through ‘Show My Homework’ and Google Classroom; students are familiar with using these online learning platforms both in school and at home.
We ask all students to log into ‘Show My Homework’ each day to access their work.
To further support the online learning experiences set by teachers, we encourage students in years 7 to 9 to read each day, and for students in years 10 and 11 to access GCSE Pod.
On our website, www.elfedhs.co.uk, we have provided the relevant links and help guides to support these online experiences. Please click on the ‘Show My Homework’ and ‘Elfed Portal’ links on the right hand side on our home page. We also encourage you to follow us on Twitter @ElfedHS.
