I am writing to outline the School’s approach to home learning if we are closed as a precaution against the spread of coronavirus. This is preparatory work we have undertaken despite receiving no indication that closure is either likely or imminent. We felt that it was important nonetheless to prepare in case the Government followed those of other countries in shutting schools nationwide.

Our intention is that every pupil at the School would follow their normal timetable while working at home, including both lesson time and homework. We have chosen to use Show My Homework as our vehicle for delivering this timetable in this eventuality. Each lesson’s work on any given day will be set as a piece of work on Show My Homework.

The nature of the work set on Show My Homework will vary from subject to subject. For instance, in Mathematics Show My Homework will direct pupils to Hegarty Maths, in Science Show My Homework will link to resources using ActiveLearn, and in English our resources will be posted directly onto Show My Homework. Where subjects are asking for work to be submitted directly to Show My Homework, pupils can either submit this as a word processed document or as a photograph of written work. We will be providing pupils with an exercise book to complete work.

If you have questions in relation to this, including if your child will be unable to access Show My Homework on a laptop, mobile phone or computer while at home, or if you would like your or your child’s login to Show My Homework, please email Mr Samuel on samuelw@cfbs.islington.sch.uk.

In the meantime, we hope you will use the School website to be familiar both with the School processes to keeping the community safe and well at this time and with how you can support us with this.

We wish you well in what we know is a challenging time for us all.
