Learning From Home

In response to government guidance, we now provide a comprehensive package of home learning for any students required to self-isolate. Each student has been provided with a unique account on Microsoft Office365 and can access lessons, resources and make contact with their teachers. Further resources are also available below.

It is essential that students who have been sent home to self isolate keep up with their school work during the time spent away from school.

BAfB use Office 365 to deliver lesson plans, tasks and resources and includes all the tools for students to complete the work on their tablets or computers. Every student has been supplied with a school email address and password to access these tools. If students do not know their school emails or passwords they should contact their form tutor ASAP so they are ready to work from home if required.
