Home Learning Curriculum
This information is intended to provide clarity and transparency to pupils and parents or carers about what to expect from remote education.
In the case of industrial action students can:
- Refer to their subject and year group Google classrooms
- Ensure any outstanding work is completed from other online platforms such as Sparx, Hegarty Maths or Seneca
- Use the following link to Oak National Academy where other recorded lessons are available https://classroom.thenational.academy/
The information below refers to remote education which would be provided to students in all other circumstance. For instance, when in-person attendance is either not possible or when contrary to government guidance. This could include:
- occasions when leaders cannot open the school site safely
- opening the school site would contravene government guidance
- occasions when individual pupils cannot physically attend for a limited period but can continue learning, for example an infectious illness
How will my child access any online remote education if required?
In the first instance students should refer to the following:
- Students should refer to their subject and Year group Google Classrooms where tasks may be set by their teacher. The work on Google Classroom is to be prioritised if it has been set.
How will my child be taught remotely?
We use the following approaches to remote learning:
Assignments /Classwork set via the links on the Home Learning page or Google Classroom which may include:
- Other Digital platforms, such as: Sparx and/or Hegarty in Maths, Readingwise Literacy programme and Seneca in Science.
- Textbooks and reading books students have at home.
- Commercially available websites supporting the teaching of specific subjects or areas, including video clips.
- Use of Google Suite: Google Classroom, Gmail and Google Meet. If Google Meet was used please be aware we may sometimes record Google Meet sessions for a variety of purposes. Students will be informed at the start of the Meet if it is being recorded and that by attending they understand this and give their consent. As a matter of course, recording will happen in the case of extended 1:1 Google Meet/Zoom sessions with students.
- Recorded teaching this maybe video lessons created by an external provider including Oak National Academy lessons, video/audio recordings made by teachers.
- Printed paper packs produced by teachers (e.g. workbooks, worksheets) if required and in communication with our Personalised Learning Department or Pastoral team
If my child does not have digital or online access at home, how will you support them to access remote education?
We recognise that some pupils may not have suitable online access at home.
Please contact the school if your child needs a device or is having issues accessing remote learning, or to discuss provision and submission of work if your child has no online access at all.
