Students at St Benedict's benefit from a full timetable of lessons and the study of their usual school curriculum during a national lock down. Teachers are online and in school to support students with their work and to make sure that learning at home is as close to the high standard that takes place in school, as possible.
Students working at home are expected to follow their normal school timetable and access lessons online that they would usually be taking part in at school. We know that each family's circumstances are different so, as well as providing the familiar school routine for students, work is accessible throughout the day and week, and students can go back and revisit work from previous days should they miss any day of school.
If students can access their lessons they are expected to join in each lesson on their timetable where a register will be taken. If families need support accessing the work in line with the student's usual timetable, please contact your son/daughter's Head of Year, who will be able to provide guidance and help.
Students receive time with their tutor each week via Microsoft Teams. During form time students will take part in collective worship, the form tutor will be able to solve any problems students have encountered accessing their work and students will receive a message with the weekly focus from their Head of Year. Work will also be done with the students to maintain and improve their mental health.
Form time takes place between 8.50am and 9.15am on the days listed below.
Whole School Assembly
The whole school assembly takes place at the beginning of each week with students sent the link via their Edulink One accounts. Students are invited to join in the with school assembly each week, where collective worship will take place and a senior member of staff will lead students through the focus for that week.
Year 7 - 10
Students in Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 receive a mixture of work through both the Edulink One home learning website and lessons delivered 'live' using the Microsoft Teams service. Students should log in to Edulink each day, where they will find the lessons set for them by their teachers or a link to the Microsoft Teams lesson taking place later that day.
Students receive 5 hour long lessons each day, reflecting their usual day's timetable, and should complete the tasks and activities set for them by their teachers. Students should submit their work, at their teacher's request, via e-mail or using their school OneNote account following the lesson and can contact their teachers during the school day with any questions or queries about their work.
Year 11 and 6th Form
Students in Year 11, 12 and 13 are also expected to follow their usual school timetable online. Students' lessons are delivered 'Live' through the Microsoft Teams app or website and take place following the timings below.
