Remote Learming

What I need to know/ do if? 

Please click each section below to find out what learning will look like for each situation.

The below information will help you to understand how to use each platform.

The above series of 5 videos is great for sharing with Parents and Students - simple clear instructions on remote learning with Microsoft Teams, attending live lessons, completing assignments, and working with Onenote. Watch them here.

National Literacy Trust has some fantastic resources for students to access during lockdown. Click the image above or visit here: https://wordsforlife.org.uk/zone-in/

Where an entire group of students has been sent home, the expectation on children is that they use their timetable to structure their day and access their material via TEAMS or Satchel:One. The teacher will be available for interaction/feedback during the scheduled lesson time. This may take the form of a live lesson via TEAMS, or it may take the form of receiving and answering questions via email/satchel one. It may also involve the teacher updating and sharing real-time resources during the scheduled lesson time. The responsibility is on the student to be accessing the lesson at the scheduled time. The responsibility on the teacher is to be available and plan/deliver the learning for the scheduled lesson. On the first week of return, the teacher will plan lessons to close any gaps in learning

The expectation on children is that they use their timetable to structure their day and access their material via TEAMS or Satchel:One. Access to the teacher will not be live as the teacher is teaching. However, the teacher will use their time to manage misconceptions, understanding and learning and will communicate this with the class. In practice, this may be via updated teaching material or via the notebook in teams. Teachers will be responsible for updating learning and students for accessing and responding to feedback. It is reasonable to expect a 24hr delay between new material. On return, students will re-engage in lessons and teachers will continue to identify gaps in the fluency of the learning. This will be different in each subject and for each student and will take place at some point in the following weeks as we assess learning over time, not in individual lessons. This way, we can best assess the needs of students and the impact of remote learning.

Where the teacher is fit and well but isolating, the class will be covered by a supply teacher who will support to co-deliver the learning. This is likely to be in the format of a live lesson where the class teacher leads the learning remotely with the supply supporting in the class. This will help to ensure learning is closely matched to that of the normal lesson. On the first week of return, the teacher will ensure that any gaps in learning are closed.

In this instance, a supply teacher will teach the class using the materials on TEAMS. The work will be available at all times for children to log-on to their work at home if they need to revisit. On the first week of return, the teacher will plan lessons to close any gaps in learning.
