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.
We use combination of the following approaches to teach students remotely:
- Seesaw – class work will be uploaded to Seesaw for students to access where appropriate
- Recorded teaching (e.g. Oak National Academy lessons, video/audio recordings made by teachers, BBC programmes)
- Textbooks and reading books that students have at home
- Commercially available websites supporting the teaching of specific subjects or areas, including video clips or sequences eg. My Maths, Lexia, TT RockStars
- raPctical tasks eg. a recipe may be given for food technology
- Long-term project work and/or internet research activities
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 Form Tutor. We will also provide printed paper packs produced by teachers (e.g. workbooks, worksheets, exam papers) if preferred.
