What is Frog?

Frog is our school Virtual Learning Environment  (VLE).

This is a web based tool that allows staff and students to access multimedia rich learning resources whether in the classroom or at home. 

Students are confident users of this tool and every student has a login and secure Frog E Mail they use routinely across subject areas throughout the school week.

By publishing learning resources in this way students always know where to find helpful support and interesting multimedia content that helps to make the learning experience fun and engaging. 

Feedback from Parents tells us that use of Frog makes the schools expectation of students clearer and more transparent.  It enables Parents Staff and Students to work together to ensure all students achieve their potential.

Extended Learning is now published using the My Set Work function on Frog.  This allows Students and Parents to see what tasks are being set.  Students are able to access a range of multimedia rich resources that make the learning experience more engaging and effective.

Students who do not have easy access to the web are catered for with a range of breakfast, lunchtime and after school clubs.  Not only can students check their Extended Learning tasks, they can work in a calm environment without distractions to complete and print their work.


THe Frog VLE is becoming an increasingly important tool at Key Stage 4, offering a clear learning ladder to GCSE students which is linked to teacher feedback and individually set targets.  Students know their targets and can get help in achieving them using the wide range of easily accessed published material.
