Remote Learning During Self Isolation
We provide remote learning for all students who are absent from school due to Covid-19 self-isolation or illness. This is available in your child’s Google Classroom for each of their subjects. Teachers are uploading lesson resources and in most cases explanation videos or audio recordings to support students with their learning. We expect all students to complete this work if they are fit and able to do so.
We expect that students will complete the set work for each of their regular lessons across the school day while they are learning remotely during self-isolation. This means that students in KS3 and KS4 will complete at least 5 hours of remote learning each day while 6th form students will complete all of their guided learning hours in their normal timetable.
Teachers will provide feedback on key pieces of work via Google classrooms or via email to individual self-isolating students. Students should also use the self-assessment opportunities in the resources provided to them to evaluate their progress and understanding.
All students have been provided with a guide to Google Classrooms which will support them to access this work. You can find this in the section Remote Learning - Student Guide. Please look through this guide with your child and ensure that they understand all the steps which they need to take to complete their remote learning.
Students must ensure that they have accepted all the invitations to the Google classrooms that they have received to their school email address and that they are regularly checking their Google classroom for uploaded tasks and resources. If you experience any problems with your child’s remote learning, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
We also ask that parents / carers let us know immediately if your child does not have access to a laptop or computer which they can use across the day for remote learning. If this is the case, we may be able to provide equipment to your child to help with this.
