Remote Learning Offer - Upper Evergreens
Remote Learning Offer Spring Term 2021
The remote learning offer for those students in the 6th Form focuses on the practical application of skills, and putting into practice the learning from school in all areas of functional literacy, numeracy and PSHE.
The work plans are structured around our awarding body, ASDAN and show modules of work which can take place in the home.
There are also links to online learning for English and Maths key skills.
Should any student in the Upper Evergreens find themselves needing to spend a significant period of time away from school over the coming months, then the information below linked to home learning can be used.
How do we do this?
During any lockdown period we will use phone calls, emails and Microsoft Teams as a way to video call and keep in touch. I will also make contact with you to discuss how your son/daughter can best access their education.
Teams calls and emails will be used regularly as a way to set, monitor and feedback about work completed at home as well as keep in touch and make sure we can see each other!
As a general guide, a daily Teams video call will take place at 10.00am and students accessing school as well as those at home can be part of these to talk about work set and have social contact with peers and class groups.
Work packs will also be shared with those students at home each week. We can arrange for a work pack to be posted, emailed or dropped off at home and this will be discussed with each family on an individual basis.
If you require help and support to set up Teams video calling at home, please let me know and I can support you.

Also further down this web page are the full list of activities and ideas which were shared during previous lockdowns. These activities are still very relevant to the curriculum we study, and so can also be used if needed.
If you have any questions about the work you find here, please don't hesitate to contact me at school and I will be more than happy to talk it through!
Upper Evergreens Curriculum Information
We cater for the oldest students in the school, and provide the learning environment for young people aged between 16 and 19 years. We are very lucky to have a whole section of the school to ourselves, which means we can divide into our activities daily and join together at key times during the week with Lower Evergreens for Work Related Learning and Sports and Leisure activities.
We are working towards qualifications as and when we leave school; This is really important to us, as it means we can move on into adulthood with the best options possible – some of our friends last year went to college, and others joined adult resource centres to develop their work skills even more.
Naomi is our teacher and she is helped by Tracie, Julie, Sue W and Sue Wilks – meaning we can spend a lot of our week out and about in the local community, enjoying school based work experience and practice skills we need for our adult life in the local area.
We hope you enjoyed looking at our web page – and enjoy looking at what we do. You are welcome to come and visit us in school and ask us about our learning!
As we enter the Sixth Form, we are supported to choose the right Pathway for us. There are four Pathways and each one provides us with different qualification options, our curriculum offer and the support we have for Work Related Learning and Careers advice.
There is more detail about our Pathways on the page 'Post 16' which is under the Key Information section on this website.
Please take a look at our Offer information too - it talks about what we will learn, how we will develop and the qualifications we can work towards for English, Maths and Life Skills.
TIS (Trauma Informed Schools)
As a class team, we are aware of the practices of TIS and embed activities and games in to our everyday work.
We have the opportunity to use the expertise of our TIS practitioner who is available to work with children as well as offer us advice when needed.
