Guidance on School Closure

Latest information regarding Distance Learning:

from Monday 15th June 2020, a new teaching and learning plan is being implemented to continue to support students throughout the school closure.

Please take a few moments to read this important information:

  1. A Student’s Guide to Distance Learning from 15th June 2020
  2. A Parental Guide to Distance Learning from 15th June 2020
  3. Quick Guide to Teams for Education

Students will be expected to follow a new timetable and submit work that their teachers set.

Please make sure you’re following Brannel School’s Facebook page, where challenges will be set for Music, Art, Design Technology, PE and Drama.  We hope that students and their families can complete these together.

In preparation for the new plan, students should complete any outstanding work that had previously been set for them on Show My Homework.
