Home Learning - School Closure
On this page, you will find helpful resources and advice to support learning during this period of school closure. These documents contain general advice and summaries of key information for each subject.
Please note that, from Monday 23rd March, teachers will be uploading specific tasks for their classes onto Show My Homework. These tasks, lessons, resources and assessments will be set regularly throughout any period of closure and should be the main tasks that students focus their efforts on. The documents below outline additional tasks and more general advice, and should be used as 'extras' that are available to support students needing to go beyond what is on Show My Homework.
A summary of the documents available here follows:
Home Learning Guide This is a useful summary document for students and parents on how to go about learning effectively at home and how to support your daughter's learning.
Online Learning DGS A summary of the online learning tools provided or recommended by us.
Accessing DGS systems from home or mobile devices Instructions on how to access school email and our Microsoft Office environment.
Contingency work subject summaries are described below.
Below the subjects you will find additional advice, useful info and links to supplement the daily/weekly work set on Show My Homework.
The above subject documents contain contact details for relevant staff contacts for each subject and, as always, we would encourage contacting teachers via email if you have any queries. However, please be aware that staff may be self-isolating as they are unwell and many of us will also have additional childcare responsibilities during this time. As such, we will endeavour to be as responsive as possible but appreciate your patience with regards response times.
