01.09.2020 Start of term distance learning
We asked you what you thought about Google Classrooms during lockdown…and we listened!  Please find the new streamlined study planner for those pupils in Years 8 – 10 who aren’t in until Monday, September 6th.  As you can see:
  • there is now a clear schedule to follow with morning and afternoon sessions starting on Wednesday, September 2nd
  • there are fewer Google Classrooms (we have separated them into Areas of Learning)
  • there are links that take pupils directly to the work they should complete – they will be prompted to log in (if they are not already)

and, most importantly, we are now sharing the information with you – our parents/carers!  You’ll find this study planner on email, Facebook, Twitter and the school website, as well as the usual invitations through your child’s school email.

Let us know what you think!

17.07.2020 Call for parents to help keep children safe online

Gwent Police is joining forces with local education authorities to warn parents about the dangers that lurk online.

It comes following an increase in the number of reports of children sharing indecent images online.

Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, going online has become a way of life. It’s where we all learn, work and socialise. For children, going online is the new classroom, playground or play date. Sadly, there are people out there that take advantage of this and pray on the young.

Gwent Police, with its’ partners, is launching a new campaign with the simple message to parents; stop what you are doing; talk to your children about staying safe online; and protect them from harm.
