Remote Learning Provision

All students have access to Microsoft Teams which compliments their on-site learning. This can be accessed to continue with studies in a child’s own time, and used to complete homework/assignments. We also offer a Remote Access System which allows students to use specialist software packages.

Provision for Self-Isolating Students from September 2020

Our aim is to ensure that students are able to continue their learning with as little disruption as possible. We are pleased to be able to offer students and families a range of support, depending on the circumstances. Our provision for students will be include remote teaching and access to a range of online resources created by their teachers. All resources are accessible through Microsoft Teams.

Provision for Self-Isolating Students from September 2020

Our aim is to ensure that students are able to continue their learning with as little disruption as possible. We are pleased to be able to offer students and families a range of support, depending on the circumstances. Our provision for students will be include remote teaching and access to a range of live webinars or pre-recorded ‘streamed’ lessons created by their teachers.

Remote Teaching

Where it is possible, we will aim to run a full timetable of remote teaching using Teams. Remote lessons will be 40 minutes long and students are expected to attend. Lessons will begin 10 minutes after their normal start time. Remote lessons will be hosted using Teams and can be viewed on any mobile device or computer.

Live Webinars

These sessions are presented live by subject teachers and joined remotely by students while at home using Microsoft Teams. Teachers will deliver lessons that provide students with explanations and demonstrations of topics and concepts and also set short independent learning tasks for them to complete during the session. During webinars, students are able to ask their teacher questions through a Q&A chat facility, but are not able to interact directly with the teacher or each other students using video or audio functions.

Streamed Lessons

Teachers are creating and sharing short, pre-recorded video lessons providing clear instructions, explanations, demonstrations and examples. These videos will help students work through structured activities and understand key topics. They can be accessed at any time via YouTube or Seesaw with students able to pause, rewind and re-watch when needed. While these videos do not provide ‘live’ interaction with teachers, students can seek help by contacting their teachers via email or Seesaw.

Students without ICT or internet access

We will rely heavily on suitable access to ICT. Ideally, students should have access to their own computer or tablet device, but we fully appreciate the constraints that many families will face. Our learning activities are designed to be accessible using a wide range of devices (including smart phones if necessary), and while we cannot provide devices to every child, we will do our best to support you if your child does not have suitable ICT access. If you are concerned about this, please contact the school through your child’s Progress Leader.

Other useful websites and resources

There are a number of learning resources used in school that can be accessed from home. Oak National Academy, BBC Bitesize Daily and purple mash are excellent new resources providing free, interactive curriculum-linked lessons for all year groups.

Free printable resources

Twinkl – This site provides a wide range of excellent learning resources for children of all ages. There is also an excellent Home Learning Hub containing a daily update of activities. Highly recommended.

The UK Government has also identified a range of online learning resources covering a variety of subjects across the different Key Stages. These resources should not replace those that are already in place for our students in the Remote Learning section of the website. They should simply serve as additional support if needed.
