Remote Learning

 

 

We are in a position where remote learning may have to take place under certain circumstances. In this section, you will find an overview of the curriculum content for year subject and for each year group.

The following are the two most likely scenarios where remote learning will be needed


1) Students are absent in relatively small numbers in a particular year group, students are absent due to a confirmed case in the family or from a contact outside of school. The numbers isolated from school are less than a whole class or year group


If your child is absent under these circumstances from Monday 5th October they should use Satchel One/Show my Homework to search for the work set for absences in their year group.
For example, a student absent in year 7 should search for Yr7 Absence Work, Year 8 students absent should search for Yr8 Absence work, etc.
Weekly work for all subjects will be set on different days as appropriate throughout the week, lessons will be a mixture of tasks including video lessons from online external providers such as Oak Academy.
Regular contact for students will be available for pupils online through Microsoft Teams during a virtual/online form time that will be run by the pastoral team at the start of the day.
Work will be monitored by classroom teachers on a student’s return to school following an isolation period.

 

2) Students are off in large numbers, students are off due to a confirmed case in school with a whole year group or whole class told to self-isolate for up to 14 days following advice from the public health authority.

 

If your child is absent under these circumstances from Monday 5th October they should use Satchel One/Show my Homework again to find the work that needs to be completed. The work will be set by their own class teacher in each subject according to their timetable of lessons in school. They should find this work by looking on the work set for their own class, not in year group work as detailed in situation 1 (above).
Lessons will be a mixture of tasks including written work and video lessons from online external providers such as Oak Academy. When students are required to isolate for 10/14 days, some of the work in certain subjects will be available via online live lessons/tutorials on Microsoft Teams led by their class teacher if appropriate. Students should log into Satchel One/SMHW at the time of their lessons each day to make sure that they can access the work that has been set or take part in any live lessons available. The timing/schedule of live lessons will be communicated to students in advance by their teacher if possible.
Work will be monitored by classroom teachers on a student’s return to school following an isolation period and through interactions on scheduled online live lessons between students and teachers.
