Remote education provision: information for parents
This information is intended to provide clarity and transparency to pupils and parents or carers about what to expect from remote education when individual pupils are self-isolating. Please note that we are no longer anticipating local restrictions requiring entire cohorts to remain at home.
Remote education for self-isolating students
As individual pupil self-isolation becomes rarer and for shorter periods of time, we are moving towards remote education for self-isolating students being provided through SatchelOne and non-live provision, and will no longer be providing blended learning in all but exceptional circumstances. Students who are self-isolating but who are well enough to complete school work should:
- Consult SatchelOne for any homework to be completed in the first instance
- Use pre-existing online resources - for example those provided on SatchelOne and Microsoft Teams/One Drive - to keep up to date with topics being studied at school where possible
- Spend time engaged with reading, and/or revision of previous work where appropriate
- Be prepared to catch up on their return to school through speaking to teachers.
Students should not expect to receive individual instructions from teachers regarding work while they are absent from school, but general enquiries can be sent by parents via the Key Stage Administrators at KS3 and 4, or by students via SatchelOne and email in the Sixth Form.
