Self-study at Westborough High School

Self-study is any form of independent work that a pupil can complete outside school time. Having the opportunity to think about a subject outside of contact time has a positive impact on a pupil’s achievement.

Self-study can be accessed through a variety of online platforms available to all pupils. Below are the platforms available to each child for all subject areas:

Self-study Expectations

What if a Pupil is Absent from School?

If a pupil is absent from school, there is an expectation that they catch-up on the learning missed.

Meaningful and manageable work will be set on learning platforms linked to the subject curriculum. The completion of this work will address knowledge gaps caused by the absence and facilitate a smooth and confident return to lessons.

The support of parents and carers to ensure pupils catch-up on work missed is crucial for minimising the effect of absence on the life chances of their child.
