During the periods students are absent due to industrial action, work from teachers not striking on the day is uploaded onto Google Classroom; this might be more problematic for practical subjects such as PE.

All students in KS3 have a reading book and can undertake their Accelerated Reading quiz online as well as using Spellzone for regular spelling practice.
