Provision for Self-Isolating Students from September 2020
Our aim is to ensure that students are able to continue their learning with as little disruption as possible. We are pleased to be able to offer students and families a range of support, depending on the circumstances. Our provision for students will be include remote teaching and access to a range resources that will match what they would be learning in school. This will be a mix of Streams (Lessons with teacher voice-overs), PowerPoints, Worksheets, Quizzes & access to online learning websites such as Hegarty Maths, Educake, SENECA & Oak Academy.
Where is pupil work being set and how is it accessed?
All student work is being set on Microsoft Teams, students can access this using their school login details (the same as they use to access the computer in school).
They can access Teams through logging into RM-Unify.
Teachers are creating and sharing short, pre-recorded video lessons providing clear instructions, explanations, demonstrations and examples. These videos will help students work through structured activities and understand key topics. They can be accessed at any time using Microsoft Stream with students able to pause, rewind and re-watch when needed. While these videos do not provide ‘live’ interaction with teachers, students can seek help by contacting their class Team or email.
Students without ICT or internet access
We will rely heavily on suitable access to ICT. Ideally, students should have access to their own computer or tablet device, but we fully appreciate the constraints that many families will face. Our learning activities are designed to be accessible using a wide range of devices (including smart phones if necessary), and while we cannot provide devices to every child, we will do our best to support you if your child does not have suitable ICT access. If you are concerned about this, please contact the school through your child's Progress Leader.
Other useful websites and resources
There are a number of learning resources used in school that can be accessed from home.Oak National Academy and BBC Bitesize Daily are excellent new resources providing free, interactive curriculum-linked lessons for all year groups.
