ATTENDANCE GUIDANCE FOR PUPILS EXHIBITING SYMPTOMS OF COVID


In line with the DFE guidance, May 2022, pupils with the key symptoms of COVID-19, a high temperature or feeling unwell, should not attend school..

Children who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to school when they no longer have a high temperature and they are well enough to attend. Pupils with a positive Covid-19 test should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 3 days.


Thank you for your co-operation.
Mr Botes

History

History is a vital subject for helping pupils understand and make sense of the world in which they live. We want our pupils to be inquisitive and to be able to critically analyse issues and information with confidence. Pupils will study elements of British, European and wider world History from a range of perspectives and are encouraged to engage with genuine historical debate and scholarship. We follow the national curriculum for History and the AQA syllabus at GCSE.

Approaches to Teaching and Learning in History

History lessons involve a variety of approaches. There is the expectation that pupils are actively involved in discussion, with opportunities for paired talk and whole class discussion. Reading is essential in History and pupils engage with a range of source material, articles and scholarship on a regular basis. Pupils have the opportunity to engage with contemporary historical sources in the majority of lessons. Homework is set weekly as appropriate for all year groups and may include tasks such as preparatory reading material, revision or activities to consolidate learning in lessons.
