At Bushey Meads School, we invest in a range of online learning platforms to aid the progress inside and outside the lessons.

Students in Years 7-9 benefit from the Bedrock Vocabulary platform which helps improve literacy levels, beneficial to all subject areas in the school. Some time is allocated in lessons for students to complete work but they are also expected to complete work at home every week to support and embed their learning.

Some subject areas have particular platforms they promote to help support learning in their subject areas. As a school, we invest in two additional platforms which are available for all students with almost all subject areas covered – these are SAM Learning and Seneca Learning.

Sam Learning has a huge range of revision and learning resources in almost all subject areas which students are able to access.

Independent research, conducted by Education Endowment Fund, has also shown that if students spend just 30 minutes a week completing activities on SAM Learning they can increase their GCSE grades by at least 2 grades. If your child does not have any home learning to complete on an evening after school, do encourage them to spend at least 30 minutes on SAMLearning, Seneca Learning or Bedrock Vocabulary to help boost their understanding.

SAM Learning can be accessed through this link: https://www.samlearning.com/
