Remote learning

The school provides remote learning for pupils in a variety of formats: ‘live’ and pre-recorded lessons, set work available via Microsoft Teams or Showbie. If pupils are at home, they should organise their daily timetable based on their normal timetable and on what work is set in their Microsoft Teams classes.

If the school is dealing with significant staff absence, any delay in posting curriculum content in line with the scheme of work can be supported through work already posted in the subject area via Microsoft Teams or Showbie. This can be further supported by topic-related searches using online platforms, eg. Hegarty Maths, Seneca or The Oak Academy.

Please note: the school expects all pupils who are feeling well and are at home isolating to engage with learning. We expect that all work set will be completed by pupils.

Remote learning FAQs

Please check our Remote Learning FAQs for more details on what and how pupils will be taught remotely.

Knowledge Organisers

Pupils can support their remote learning by using the subject Knowledge Organisers. All pupils have been issued with Knowledge Organisers for all their subjects. For more information about Knowledge Organisers and how they can be used to support home learning please click here.

Acceptable use of digital platforms

All remote learning and communication should be completed with the usual high expectations of behaviour:

  1. One to one online meetings should be avoided regardless of the digital learning platform.
  2. Pupils should use only their own accounts when communicating on online platforms.
  3. All communication made should be respectful and not offensive to others, this includes the sharing of images, sounds and written material.
  4. Any online meetings should not be recorded on mobile devices without the host permission.
  5. Rules defined by the host teacher should be respected. For example, the host may ask you to turn the microphones off or to answer questions specifically directed to you.
  6. It might be helpful to place your device on a table and avoid background noises if possible. Appropriate clothing should be worn for any video based distance learning.
