Learning from Home

Addey and Stanhope have launched 'live' lessons through Microsoft Teams. This involves students logging onto their device and being able to participate in a live, scheduled lesson with their subject teachers.  All sessions are recorded.  Strict Safeguarding and E-safety guidelines are adhered to in every session.  Your child's teacher is visible, but students will not be visible to the teacher or any other students.  They are only able to communicate through audio means. 

Parents/Carers wishing to view the School Safeguarding policy, you can do so here.

‘Live’ lessons have been trialled with Year 10 students and have been very successful.

We require Parental Permission before your child can participate in the 'live' lessons.  Parents and carers of students in Years 7 to 9 have been sent a form to complete via ParentMail.  


How long are the lessons?

Lessons will vary in length and will be anything from 30 minutes to one hour. 

How often are they?

One per week for each subject, following the timetable students have been using during lockdown.

What format are the lessons?

As close as possible to normal lessons – Teachers will introduce new content / task using powerpoint or other appropriate means.  Students will have the opportunity to participate and ask questions directly.

How will my child know they have a ‘live’ lesson?

Students will receive an invite on their school email address which will automatically go into their school calendar.  They need to accept the invite.  On the day and time of the lesson, they should go to the invite or calendar entry and click ‘Join’


Learning from home – updated advice for students

We have received lots of invaluable feedback from students recently.

We all find it challenging at times to manage our workload, especially when trying to work at home.

Our teachers are working really hard to support every student with their learning from home.

The well-being of our students is, and always will be, at the heart of Addeys. It is more important now than ever. At Addeys we focus on the Addey’s 5 for well-being.

Keeping Learning is a key part of our well-being.

  • Students will be expected to work from home each school day.
  • We understand that working from home can be a challenge for many students (as it is for many adults) and we therefore only expect students to work for 2 to 3 hours each day.
  • They will be set 3 to 4 tasks through Show My Homework
  • For year 7, 8 and 9, these tasks will take a total of around 2 hours
  • For years 10 and 11, these tasks will take a total of around 3 hours
  • These tasks will appear in Show My Homework each day and should be completed on the day they are set
  • Students can communicate with their teachers through Show My Homework, as well as by email


We will be reviewing our learning from home strategy regularly and will be asking you for your feedback.

In the meantime, if you have any questions, please email Mr Murrells dmurrells@addeystanhope.co.uk
