We have been reviewing our current Remote Learning package for pupils, please see below:
Where a class, group or small number of pupils need to self-isolate, we will provide immediate remote education. We have strong contingency plans in place which allows access to high quality resources and uses a curriculum sequence. Pupils who do not have online access will be provided with books/printed resources to continue their learning, in addition we will endeavour to ensure that we can support that young person with a device as soon as possible.
The work set will:
Be meaningful and ambitious.
Cover a range of subjects.
Be equivalent in length to the normal school day curriculum provision.
Be clear,well planned and well sequenced.
Provide clear explanations of new content.
Work will not:
Be a long term projects.
Be based purely on internet research.
What happens if my son/daughter needs to self-isolate due to either:
Someone in the household has symptoms
Being in contact with a positive case
Having to quarantine?
If we are informed that your son/daughter needs to self-isolate for one of the reasons above you will immediately be sent the following letter:
This letter includes a reminder of all the online tools your son/daughter has access to and can start to use immediately.
Following further discussion, if your son/daughter is required to isolate for a longer period of time e.g. 14 days, we will collate work from each of their class teachers and this will be sent via their email and a copy posted home in a letter.
If your son/daughter experiences any problems or requires further support they can contact their teacher via email. We recommend they also check their class Teams channels daily to keep up to date with any class posts.
What happens if a large group of pupils are asked by the school to self-isolate e.g. the Year 7 pod?
If large numbers of pupils are required to self-isolate all work will be set via Microsoft Office Teams. Our pupils have a Teams channel for each of their classes; it is here that their teachers will communicate with them. Lessons will be posted in accordance with the normal time on the timetabled lesson (however, they will remain available to allow for flexibility). There will be assignments for pupils to complete online which can subsequently be checked by their teachers.
Here is a link to remind your son/daughter how to access Teams.
