Home Learning

Return to School – 15th March 2021

We are looking forward to welcoming all students back to HHS for some time in school over the next 3 weeks planned for all years. Below is the most recent letter from our Headteacher Mrs Porteous with regards to return to school and blended learning on Monday 15th March. The document below gives an overview of the pattern of days depending on which half of the school your child has been placed in (School Blue or School Yellow).

The letter shown above with the information on which half of the school (Blue/Yellow) your child is in, along with the days they were due in school each week was emailed to all parents on Thursday 11th March 2021. If you have not received this information please contact the school office to confirm details as soon as possible.

This area of the website is where you will find useful links to resources which can be of help to both students and parents whilst we return to school on the Blended Learning model and continue some learning at home in March 2021. Below is our HHS Guide to Home Learning for parents and students to use to help us to continue into Blended Learning in March 2021 whilst still focusing on new learning and progress. This document gives the detail of the way in which HHS will support remote home learning from w/c Monday 11th January 2021 for both Senior Phase (S4-S6) and BGE (S1-S3) students and parents.

Contact details for staff are shown on a separate part of the home learning menu should you or your child require further support or assistance at home with either work or pastoral issues. The Home Learning Guide also contains information on technical and troubleshooting issues for working remotely. Please refer to this guide as a method of support in the first instance with any technical issues with either accessing work via the iPad, Satchel One, GLOW, technical or log in issues.

All students should now access work for their timetabled classes as per the new Home Learning Guide via Microsoft Teams. Parents will be notified using Satchel One (formerly known as Show My Homework) about work being set and deadlines for submission.

Satchel one is now up and running for all students, if a parent hasn’t received a letter via email with their parent code please contact the school on (01450) 372 429 or via email on hhs@scotborders.gov.uk and we will get this to you. A further tab is shown on the home learning menu for Satchel One (Show My Homework) user guides.

Firstly students should be making sure they are able to access GLOW on their iPad to help them learn. Secondly teachers will be placing work and resources on Microsoft Teams regularly. Shown below is a parent guide to how to access GLOW and Teams.

If your child cannot access GLOW or has lost/forgotten their password please email hhs@scotborders.gov.uk with your child’s name and registration (tutor) group and we will send details of login or password resets as required.

Please be advised at this time as ever student well-being is paramount. Therefore the students should follow the work of their school timetable where practical and manageable but so as not to feel overwhelmed by this they should get in touch with their teacher or guidance teacher if they are finding things too difficult for support. They also need to make sure they take regular breaks from home learning to complete other activities within the home including regular exercise, fun activities and skills based learning i.e. gardening, baking and crafts etc.

Further useful links are shown below for parents and students to assist in helping to adapt to home learning in this unique situation.

Further updates to this page will be posted on a regular basis so please check back soon.
