Grace Academy approach to online learning:

  • Teachers will be setting you work each lesson
  • Some subjects may be setting projects that last a few weeks
  • Some subjects are setting individual lesson work
  • Some subject teachers are doing live lessons
  • Where possible we are setting work that can be accessed on a mobile phone for students who have limited computer access
  • Teachers will be providing you with some feedback about the work submitted

Top Tips:

  • Give yourself breaks throughout the day to help your concentration
  • Try and get out and do at least one lot of exercise each day
  • Try and stick to your normal routine e.g. normal lesson times, breaks and lunch times
  • Sleep and eat well
  • If you are struggling emotionally, at home or with work contact your Head of Year or the Ethos time via e-mail or the school reception 02476 589000
