Guidance for Remote Learning
When remote learning is required, remote lessons will be provided to all students each day via Google Classroom. Every student has been provided with their personal log on details for Google Classroom which can be found on page 3 of their School Planner.
Google Classroom can be accessed using the link at the top of the school’s Homepage. If a student experiences any difficulties with accessing their Google Classroom account, this should be raised with their Form Tutor.
How remote lessons are organised each day:
Students will be provided with remote lessons as per their usual school timetable each day. These lessons will be available by 8.45am each morning. This will enable students to organise their day and lessons accordingly.
We recommend that students get up in the morning at their usual time, have breakfast and are ready to begin their lessons by 8.55am.
Students should take their usual lunch break between 12.00 and 12.55pm.
Students will be required to submit work each day for some or all of their lessons. Their subject teachers will provide the details of what is required to be submitted each day via Google Classroom.
Students are able to contact their Form Tutor and subject teachers directly using the Private Comment function on Google Classroom.
If any student experiences issues with their remote lessons or access to technology, their Form Tutor or Head of Year should be informed as soon as possible.
Students will be able to submit their completed work through Google Classroom as well as communicate with their teachers, Form Tutor and Head of Year via the Private Comments function.
The completion time for daily remote lessons is 4pm. By this time each day students are expected to have provided evidence of their engagement with their lessons. The 4pm deadline is provided to create an expectation that the work is completed within the normal timings of a school day and avoid students working into the evening or late at night. However, we are aware that many of our students are sharing devices and have limited or sporadic access to technology and therefore some students will not be able to complete the work before 4pm. Submission past this time will not reflect negatively upon your child's engagement with their remote learning.
We are aware of the challenges that some families are experiencing with managing home learning, working from home and the additional difficulties that the current pandemic creates. Please ensure any concerns are raised with key members of staff so opportunities for support and advice can be explored.
