To support your child's learning during these unprecedented times and during our enforced school closure Parkside staff have worked incredibly hard to ensure that learning can continue 'remotely' away from school.

It is the expectation of the school that students follow their normal daily timetable and complete any/all work set for them by staff which continues what they would have been undertaking during their normal school lessons. This work should be completed in their independent learning book or online (e.g. SAM learning).

To access the work

Please go to the faculty/subject (set out below) that is required to be studied and select the task linked to the appropriate year group. These will either be directed to another website e.g. SAM learning or provide instructions of what should be undertaken in their independent learning books.

To extend their learning students should undertake memory recall tasks from the work they have undertaken e.g.


How to use SAM Learning
