Resilient Schools

The Answers You Need

If the school is closed to pupils, work can be found on GLOW.  
If the council Resilient School procedures are initiated ,a message will appear in the Latest News section and parents/carers will be informed through Groupcall. 

In many cases pupils can continue their routine school work. However, depending on the nature of individual subjects, it may be necessary to improvise and alternative work will be available.
For all subjects, there are links to revision websites.
Pupils (particularly in Senior School) are expected to take responsibility and show initiative for the work that is required in such circumstances.

In the event of the school being closed again due to the weather we have created a bank of useful websites that will allow learning to continue at home. Pupils should also refer to the relevant GLOW groups and pages on this website.
You may also wish to refer to this page from the SBC website that highlights useful sites to visit.
This part of our website provides information for parents/carers that will assist you in helping your youngsters with their studies. Subject specific help will be available via departmental pages, but this section will provide general help and tips for areas such as study skills, homework, organisation and preparation for exams. Bitesize - Standard Grade and Higher
