The Kenton Learning Zone (KLZ) is the new digital hub for students to access in school and from home. Log in with your student email address and password.
You can access the KLZ by following THIS LINK
You can revisit the lessons you have had in class by looking at the resources in the lessons folder. Many of the PowerPoints that have been used in your lessons will have had audio explanations or videos added to them, so you can have another look at something you were interested in or didn’t quite understand the first time you saw it.
More detailed versions of the learning journeys available here can be found on the KLZ.
Knowledge organisers displaying the essential core knowledge to be learnt in each unit of work are in the subject folders.
Past papers and practice exams are available on the KLZ; these will be important for KS4 and KS5 students preparing for final exams. .
Subjects save interesting articles or activities in their Engagement folder. This is great for students who have an interest in a particular subject and want to extend their learning even further than what we study in class.
Trusted research by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) shows that the impact of doing regular, effortful homework over the course of the school year leads to five-months' worth of additional progress compared to students who fail to complete their homework. We are also convinced that intelligent multiple-choice questioning based on prior learning helps our students combat the 'forgetting curve'.
All homework is set via the KLZ for Years 7 to 10. The video to the left shows you how to access your homework.
Students can report any concerns they have about school via the KLZ.
We encourage all students to attend school every day, but if there is a legitimate reason why a student cannot attend and this has been discussed with Year Leaders, then they will be able to access their learning at the KLZ. To find out what lessons to complete, absent students should consult their class' Teams page.
OUR REMOTE LEARNING PROVISION
Details of our remote learning provision in the event of lockdown or partial closure are included in this document, the template for which was provided by the Department for Education.
Staff Remote Desktop
Staff working from home are able to connect to the Kenton School network to access SIMS, file shares, and applications. Please refer to this link for guidance and a small RDP file that you will need to download.
Access Microsoft 365 and download the full Office 365 suite by following THIS LINK
The KLZ link at the top of the page is the main area students will work from along side Microsoft Teams.
As well as the KLZ, all Kenton School students have access to full Microsoft 365 allowing them to work anywhere. With this package, students are able to download and install the full Office suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc.) on to five devices (PC, Mac, mobile etc.) for free.
This PDF Guide will show you how to sign in to Microsoft 365 with your Kenton school account.
