Secondary Home Learning During Absence From School

If our pupils are at home due to Coronavirus restrictions, our priority is to ensure that every child will continue to have access to a high quality education; with daily teaching and challenging activities which willupport their development across all areas of the curriculum.  Details of our approach to Remote Learning can be found here.

Each pupil has been issued with login details for their Google Classroom.  If you require assistance in accessing Google Classroom please contact the class teacher and they will assist you.  For those who would like to find out a bit more about Google Classroom and how to log on, please visit this LINK from your laptop or desktop computer, or visit this LINK from your mobile or ipad.  If you prefer a document version, follow this LINK for a document that contains information regarding how to access Google Classroom and how to navigate around it.

In addition, the teachers and staff at Marjory Kinnon have developed some online learning resources for our pupils.  You can watch them on our YouTube channel.
