During periods of disruption to our normal educational provision, Thomas Gainsborough School have set out our Remote Learning Policy, which outlines how we will commit to provide a continuation of education when face-to-face teaching is not possible.  We have also provided guidance to support our community in how to best help our learners.

We also provide access to a number of excellent online systems to support learning throughout the year, which are particularly useful when school is closed.

The priority for any student who is unwell due to covid is to rest and not to be overly concerned about work during what will usually prove to be a limited amount of time away from school.

Students should first make use of Go4Schools to make sure they are aware of which lessons they would have had that day and that any homework or associated resources are used.

For students in Key Stage 3 (Years 7,8 & 9) information is below and resources listed in the side bar.

For Key Stages 4 (Years 10 & 11) & 5 (Years 12 & 13) students are welcome to contact teachers via email to find out how learning for affected days can most effectively supported. Depending on the subject and stage of teaching this could be via Google Classroom, emailed resources, printed or online tasks or, in some cases, access to the lesson via audio or video. 

Students in all years will also be able to keep up to date with homework via Go4Schools.
