The Home Learning Support section on the school website contains a wide range of information and guidance regarding learning at home during this period of enforced school closure. This section will be updated regularly so we ask that you check back from time to time to keep informed about developments. We thank you for all that you are able to do to support and encourage your child’s learning at home.

Science from Pfizers
As you will be aware, we work closely with Pfizers UK who support us across the year - in particular in running our amazing science days. Developed by our friends at Pfizer UK, these new resources supplement our home learning packs and may be of interest to pupils.
Together with The National Schools Partnership, Pfizers have created a set of free educational resources designed to provide information about the global health challenge of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and the role of vaccines for pupils from age 5 to 14 years.
These curriculum-linked resources also explore practical ways to prevent the spread of infection and tackle the inappropriate use of antibiotics.
Aimed at 7 to 8 and 13 to 14 year olds, these resources exist to demystify the making of a medicine, inviting students to learn about medicine development, the role of the pharmaceutical industry and the range of career opportunities that exist within the life sciences. These materials are usually delivered in classrooms by Pfizers' STEM/ SIP Ambassadors, but they have adapted the resources to be applicable for home-learning, creating virtual puzzles & e-learning modules.
‘Science in a Box’ aims to educate students about medicine development, the role of the pharmaceutical industry and to highlight the range of career opportunities that exist within life sciences - more important than ever at this time of international crisis.
Pfizers are also developing a new ‘Viruses and Pandemics’ module, which they hope to launch in the coming weeks.
The BBC has released a series of daily lessons that are available through the Red Button on your TV or online. Use these to supplement our home learning activities. Click here to access these:
