In these uncertain times, it is essential that, as a school, we have a robust plan in place to support students with remote learning if the need arises.
We are putting in place arrangements to set work for:
• Individual students who are absent for COVID-related reasons;
• Whole year groups in the event of a partial closure;
• Whole school in the event of a full school closure;
• Intervention/Impact sessions.
Regardless of whether a student needs to access remote learning because of individual absence or a partial/full school closure, this work will all be set through Microsoft Teams. Your son/daughter will automatically have access to a Microsoft Team for each of their subjects. Within the Team, there will be assignments set every week. These assignments will follow the same structure. We believe this consistency will make the work easier to access and complete. Microsoft Teams can be accessed on computers, tablets and mobile devices. If your child must quarantine at any point, he/she will be able to access the online work straight away via his/her subject Team. The work set will be aligned to the in-school provision and so it is essential that this work is completed to a high standard in a timely fashion. If we need to action a full or partial school closure, we will set work in the same way.
Please see the letter below for full details of how remote learning will work and what we can do to support you. Also there is a Remote Learning Guide to assist you in accessing this work.
