Ashby's Virtual School
Ashby's Virtual School has been launched in response to the evolving Covid-19 situation.
This digital initiative has been set up to enable students to continue their learning, even when they are not in school, because of Covid-19 or other illness.
It can be accessed through the Portal which appears at the bottom of the homepage. Guides to using the Virtual School and Microsoft Teams can be found at the bottom of this page.
The platform means students can access online teaching materials to support their learning and delivery of the national curriculum.
New learning and teaching materials will be regularly uploaded to the digital platform, ensuring a consistent learning experience so all students can benefit from the school’s expertise.
It will also give students the opportunity to practise or revise areas they have previously covered in school and identify areas where they need extra support.
Ali Jackson, Assistant Headteacher and Director of Teaching and Learning, said: "Students' learning is at the forefront of our minds as we continue to adhere to government guidelines in response to the evolving Covid-19 situation.
"The launch of Ashby's new Virtual School is a proactive step to put students' learning at the heart of our response and to make sure that we do everything we can to ensure no student gets left behind."
The school has also purchased a subscription to the award-winning GCSEPod online resource for all Year 10 and 11 students. This initiative will support their study and allow them to revise many of their subjects remotely.
A series of webinars will also be running to give students additional support and help them remain motivated to study and to improve their revision techniques. Invitation will be by email.
