If your child is working from home, please find guidance below surrounding the provision The King’s has put into place to support you with home learning.
STEP 1: Digital Safety
Before you begin the following two documents provide parents / carers and students digital safety and wellbeing kits which you may find helpful before engaging with our online materials:
STEP 2: Creating an effective study zone
The image below provides some 'top tips' for creating a study area at home that will help you focus:
Equally, the video clip below provides you with a research-based insight into the most effective way to study. We recommend that you watch this before you begin any home studies so that you are working 'smarter' and not 'harder'.
STEP 2B: Creating an effective study zone
STEP 3: A structured working week
Research shows that students learning at home independently need more time to process, synthesise and digest new information than those inside the classroom. As such, we have proposed a timetable for both Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 which takes this into consideration.
Please do not feel that you have to stick rigidly to these proposals, but rather use them as useful starting points to help your child structure their working week.
STEP 4: Keeping an eye on mental wellbeing
Based on the NHS’s evidence-based ‘‘five steps to better mental wellbeing’ we have included a simple 5 A DAY framework that gives students and parents easy to follow, practical steps to achieve a healthy and balanced digital diet.
STEP 5: You're ready to begin learning
Each of the icons below takes you to a different aspect of home study. The icon you will use most is the one labelled SUBJECT STUDIES. Click on this link below to find out how you can continue to follow the curriculum in the subjects that you study.
Please note that as well as using this website page you can also keep in touch with what's taking place back in the classroom by checking in each day with WEDUC. Here you will be able to pick up homework activities that are being sent by your class teachers.
