We expect that remote education (including remote teaching and independent work) will take pupils broadly the same amount of time as children in school. The timetable for the day will match that of children in school and individual support will be available during normal school hours. If children are unable to complete the learning tasks they are set, then they (or parent/carers on their behalf) should discuss this with the class teacher.
All children will access their online lessons using Microsoft Teams. This platform is already used to set and receive homework tasks. We will run live daily Literacy, Numeracy and Wellbeing classes. With the addition of PE twice a week (See timetable below).
We also offer a question & Answer session each morning, when parents can speak to the staff in charge of delivering the remote learning offer.
Children will be able to ask questions and request support throughout the day using Teams chat. All tasks will be set as Teams assignments and children will “hand in” the work they do and feedback will be given using Teams.
All pupil's will also have full access to our on-line system that generates mini lessons, tasks and tests based on your specific needs and progress. It is VITAL that you use it. You should have used it already in school.
You will be asked for a username and password. This should have been shared with you by tutors.
Students just have to click on the courses that appear:
- FOCUS Functional Skills
- Maths or English (make sure you choose REFORMS)
- Select a topic/course by clicking on the individual links and complete the tasks.
We recognise that some pupils may not have suitable online access at home. We take the following approaches to support those pupils to access remote education
- If your child does not have access to a laptop or other suitable device but your home does have a high speed internet connection then we may be able to lend them a laptop. Parents and carers should make contact with the School Office for further information.
- For any pupils that do not have any access to the internet, printed materials will be prepared and can be collected from school or delivered if required. Work will be delivered, collected weekly and feedback given on the previous week’s work.
