Remote Curriculum

Phase 4 of the Remote Curriculum - Individual Students Staying at Home

If you are in Year 7-11 and are absent from school because you are following the governments' stay at home advice then it is important that you continue to complete your work in all subject areas, as long as you are well enough to.

This short video will tell you what we expect of you when you are at home

You can  access the work by following these instructions:

 

- This video guide will take you through step by step instructions on how to access your work

- Click on this link to access the Remote Curriculum resources.  You can only access this if you are logged onto your Office 365 account.

- When you are into the Remote Curriculum resources you should select your year group where you will see a folder for each of your subjects.

- It is important that you complete the work set to the best of your ability.  Effort is Everything. Your teachers will help you catch up as soon as you return to school.

If you are in the Sixth Form and you are are absent from school for a public health reason then your teachers will set work for you for each lesson on Show My Homework.   You should make every attempt to keep up with the work until you return to school.  Your teacher will help you catch up when you return to school.

From the first day you are at home all students in Years 7 to 13 should:

  • Continue to follow the normal school day.  Working on each of your subjects between 8:50 pm and 3:05 pm.  Allowing time for a short break and lunch

  • For instance if you have maths period 1 then you should complete your maths work during this time, and then move onto your second lesson and so on..

  • Complete the work to the best of your ability.  If you get stuck then your teacher will be able to help catch up you when you return to school.

If you do not have access to a laptop and/or the internet at home then you may be eligible to borrow one of the government laptops or 4G routers.  Please ask your parents to contact the Student Support Team (or Sixth Form Team) if this is the case.

Phase 5 of the Remote Curriculum = When a Whole Year Group is Sent Home

 

When a whole year group is sent home work will be set for you on Show My Homework

 

  • Class teachers will set work for each class for every lesson on Show My Homework in line with the normal school timetable. 

  • Sometimes there will be a video/narrated PowerPoint to watch from your teacher so that they can clearly explain new concepts to you and also so they can give you clear instructions.  Sometimes they will point you to other websites where there are clear explanations of new concepts.

  • Your teachers will tell you what work they want you to submit and how you can submit it so that they can mark it and give you feedback.

  • If you have any questions about the work you can send it to your teacher on Show My Homework.  Do not use email.  Your teachers should be available to answer any questions you send them on Show My Homework during the time you would normally have your lesson.  They will not be able to answer at any other time than this.

  • If you are in the Sixth Form then some of your teachers may run live audio-only conference lessons on Microsoft Teams.  They will be in touch with you to explain how to set this up.

From the first day you are at home you should:

  • Continue to follow the normal school day.  Working on each of your subjects between 8:50 pm and 3:05 pm.  Allowing time for a short break and lunch

  • Check Show My Homework every lesson so that you know you are completing the correct work.

  • Stick to deadlines set by your teachers.

  • Contact your teachers during the normal lesson time to ask for help if you need it.

If you do not have access to a laptop and/or the internet at home then you may be eligible to borrow one of the government laptops or 4G routers.  Please ask your parents to contact the Student Support Team (or Sixth Form Team) if this is the case.
