Remote Learning Platforms

For optimum results we recommend using the current and updated version of Google Chrome.

During this extended period of school closure we have all had to become accustomed to using various platforms for ‘remote learning’.

At Forest Hill School we use Show My Homeworkbelow are links to the details of this and other additional platforms we are currently using, including guidance on how to access them online.

We would also like to make parents aware of two major resources to support home learning: BBC Bitesize Daily Lessons (available on the BBC red button, online and via BBC Sounds podcasts) and Oak National Academy (DfE sponsored). We are looking at the potential of these two resources, and you may wish to further investigate them yourself:

Please encourage your son(s) to check in daily for homework across all the subjects for his Year Group to support and maintain progress and learning during this period of school closure.
