National Online School

The National Online School is a collaboration between Shireland Collegiate Academy Trust, Hodder Education Group and Gluu to ensure a coherent and blended offer between school and home, online and offline, delivering a broad experience for pupils, parents and teachers. This trio is also joined by What on Earth Publishing who have worked with Shireland to curate a connected learning pathway. 

The platform will deliver a unique combination of curriculum planning, content, assessment and reporting, and also wellbeing support. All lesson plans will incorporate guidance for parents to act as a coach in addition to teacher-support materials. The platform is fully flexible and designed to be used ‘out of the box’ or customised with schools to support the needs of teachers, pupils and parents across the country.  

Launching with Year 5 in September 2020, the service will expand to cover additional Years by January 2022.
