Quick Start Guide


Good Homework Guide

Over the course of the year, you will be expected to complete lots of different pieces of homework. To ensure you do your very best your teachers have put together a simple guide of what they think makes good quality homework. If you follow these guidelines we can guarantee that you will be producing good quality homework that will help you to make further progress in your lessons.

Wait for your teacher to give out all instructions for the homework and note down key information into your planner like the title, due date and success criteria. Ask any questions you may have at the end of the explanation.

If you are stuck with a piece of homework you can send a formal email to your teacher before the due date to get extra advice, or you can go and see them in person before school, at break time, at lunch time or after school.

Always plan your homework on spare paper (this can be provided by your clasroom teacher) first to get your ideas and thoughts down. At this stage it would be useful to talk to a family member or friend about what you plan to do, how you are going to do it and when you are going to do it.

Make sure you have all of the equipment that you need in your study space at home, this could include paper, colour pencils, scissors, glue - anything you do not have, you can always ask your teacher to lend the equipment to you.

Push yourself to achieve your best. Really challenge yourself, if you try something and it doesn't work out, it doesn't matter. Your classroom teacher will be interested in the amount of effort you've put in.

Make your work as neat as your can. Your teacher will want written work on full A4 pieces of paper and kept in a folder or plastic wallet or homework book (the school can provide these if you ask).

Your writing should be your very neatest and finished to the same standard as your classwork. You can use the 'Brilliant Presentation' guide to help you with this.

Ask yourself 'Have I tried my very best?' If the answer is yes you are ready to submit your homework!

Hand your homework in on the date that it is due, this should be written in your planner.

Policy Review

Dear Parents and Carers


As you may be aware, the statutory guidance from the Department for Education around Relationships and Sex Education has changed. Here at Poltair School, we have worked hard to think about how to teach this to our students, making sure that our lessons are engaging and designed to suit the needs of all of our students in an age appropriate manner. Students will have a lesson called Personal Development once a fortnight, in which this and other topics will be covered. This was formerly known as Morals and Ethics.


We would like to get feedback from our community in order to finalise our policy on the delivery of this important curriculum area. Our draft policy is available on our website for your consideration, and we welcome any questions, comments or feedback via email to Clare Price ([email protected]). When we are able to open up the site to parents and carers, we will hold a review and consultation meeting at school to consider our policy and delivery further. Please send any communications by 10th July 2020 at the latest.

Contact during exceptional circumstances

It is important that all children, families and professionals are able to contact key staff to share information in respect of safeguarding and concerns.

Following the wider opening of all CELT schools, there is now a member of the safeguarding team on duty in school every day. Please contact the school directly and ask for the DSL if you have any concerns you wish to discuss.

The dedicated CELT e mail address is still in operation and can be used if, for any reason, you are unable to contact the school;

[email protected]

This will be monitored during office hours only, Monday to Friday.

However, you should contact the Police or Social Care if you feel that a child is at risk of immediate serious harm.

Students are emailing work they have completed at home to their teachers, the work is then showcased on the page.


Some fantastic work on there already:
