At present work is being provided by subject teachers. If your son/daughter is finding the work challenging please contact me and I will do my best to support them remotely on an individual basis as I would have had they been in school.

For pupils who need additional practise in maths

Maths Numeracy Workout

This is a great resource to help improve pupils’ mental maths and also to help with various topics across Geometry and Measure, and Statistics and Probability. It is self-correcting and pupils can work through a variety of levels from basic to more advanced. Half an hour a day gives pupils an additional way of supporting their maths skills.

Additional Support – Literacy and Numeracy

Read, Write, Inc Groups

Mrs Weir has been posting work for pupils to complete via Edmodo. This is a great way to continue to practise tasks to improve literacy skills.

IDL Learning

Pupils who require additional support with literacy (including those who work on Read, Write, Inc) and those who are in Mr Dorris’s, Mr Harty’s or Mrs Bergen’s maths classes have access to IDL Learning. They can use this resource daily to help improve their literacy and numeracy skills. Even as little as 15 minutes a day will help keep them up to speed. If they have forgotten their login it is:

New S1

Normally at this time of year the Support for Learning Department at Taylor High School would be visiting primary schools to assess identified pupils so that we can prepare individualised programmes of support. I want to reassure you that this will take place as soon as we are able to work with the pupils and the support will be provided as required. Our transition programme begins when the pupils are in primary 6 and we already have a great deal of information which we can disseminate amongst our secondary colleagues so that those pupils who need it  are supported in class from the outset. If you have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact me through your headteacher and I will answer your questions.

I look forward to working with your son/daughter.
