How will my child access home learning during their period of self-isolation?

There is a general folder on the VLE, under BGN Areas called ‘Self-Isolation’. This will have topic work for each subject area and year group. If it becomes necessary for an entire year group to self-isolate for fourteen days, then students should log-on to the VLE every day. They will follow their timetabled lessons, set by each of their teachers, in the Homework section. They should also attend any MLTV live lessons that are arranged by their teacher. There is a Survey Monkey question that will help to establish student access to the VLE.
