There are a number of ways you can get in touch with the school.  It is also important that we have the latest contact details for you.  You can update your details automatically through Insight or by contacting the school.

StudyZone / Distance Learning Enquiries – studyzone-support@pontcomp.co.uk

There are two places to check for work, the pupil area and the news feed at the top of the main pontcomp website.  New tasks that have been added are included in a weekly bulletin, all of which can be seen here: Homelearning Bulletins.

The pupil area is split into two sections, Key Stage 3 Work (years 7-9) and Key Stage 4 Work (years 10 & 11).  Click on either one and you are presented with links to the various learning platforms and below those is a list of subjects.  Click on a subject to see what work has been set and what resources are available.

If work needs to be submitted instructions will be provided or the teachers email address will be included with the assignment in StudyZone.

Most work for pupils takes place in the StudyZone & Teams areas, although tasks may also be set manually (keep an eye on the work set in the pupil area along with the weekly bulletins).  Other resources they may be asked to use include My Maths.

There are guides on how to log in and use these systems here.

If you or your child is unsure about how to log in after reading the advice here, by all means drop an email to the StudyZone Support Team.

Wellbeing for the whole family is important, especially during the lockdown.  We have a number of resources available to help:

Our own StudyZone Wellbeing area
Coronavirus: Advice for Parents and Carers
Looking After Yourself & Your Chidren
