Remote Learning Policy and Practice

Remote education provision: information for parents

Where a class, group or small number of students need to self-isolate, or there is a local lockdown requiring students to remain at home, The Department for Education expects schools to have the capacity to offer immediate remote education.

The expectations for remote learning are as follows:

  • Set assignments so that students have meaningful and ambitious work each day in a number of different subjects across the curriculum.
  • Teach a planned and well-sequenced curriculum so that knowledge and skills are built incrementally, with a good level of clarity about what is intended to be taught and practised in each subject.
  • Provide frequent, clear explanations of new content, delivered by a teacher in the school or through high-quality curriculum resources and/or videos.
  • Gauge how well students are progressing through the curriculum, using questions and other suitable tasks and set a clear expectation on how regularly teachers will check work.
  • Enable teachers to adjust the pace or difficulty of what is being taught in response to questions or assessments, including, where necessary, revising material or simplifying explanations to ensure students’ understanding.
  • Plan a programme that is of equivalent length to the core teaching students would receive in school, ideally including daily contact with teachers.
  • A minimum of 5 hours of work set per day
  • Engagement of students will be monitored at least weekly & parents will be notified of those students who are not engaging

The remote curriculum: what is taught to students at home

A student’s first day or two of being educated remotely might look different from our standard approach, while we take all necessary actions to prepare for a longer period of remote teaching.

What should my child expect from immediate remote education in the first day or two of students being sent home?

Students will be provided with details on how to access English, Maths & Science work online for the first day/two days of being sent home.  Where there is a technological barrier, students will be provided with a hard copy of those materials.

Following the first few days of remote education, will my child be taught broadly the same curriculum as they would if they were in school?

The teachers will ensure that the learning planned and the corresponding resources will replicate, as much as possible, what the day would be like if a student was still in school.

Teachers will use their detailed schemes of work and curriculum plans to ensure the learning is carefully sequenced and builds on the student’s previous knowledge.

Remote teaching and study time each day

How long can I expect work set by the school to take my child each day?

For Students in ALL year groups

If your child’s year group bubble is isolating and your child’s class teacher is fit and well to work or if there is full lockdown and the whole school has to close, the students at Our Lady’s can expect the following provision from school.

Accessing remote education

How will my child access any online remote education you are providing?

From Year 7 right though to Year 11 we use MS Teams, which is a platform for student engagement used worldwide. This can be used on any device through the MS Teams app or online. By using their unique Office 365 username and password, your child has access to a range of apps that will help them with their school work.  These apps include PowerPoint, Word and Excel.

One of the most important features of the MS Teams application is its ability to engage student learning by leveraging their digital technology skills. MS Teams is very easy to learn to use, including for those without a strong technological background.

OLQP also makes use of several online applications such as The Oak National  Academy’s website, Educake and MathsWatch, which will be valuable for the students to access whilst at home. Teachers will guide students’ use of these platforms. You will be provided with your child’s login details in the event of them isolating. If you need any support with accessing any of the online platforms please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Fletcher:

If my child does not have digital or online access at home, how will you support them to access remote education?

We recognise that some students may not have suitable online access at home. We take the following approaches to support those students to access remote education:

How will my child be taught remotely?

We use a combination of the following approaches to teach students remotely:

Engagement and feedback

What are your expectations for my child’s engagement and the support that we as parents and carers should provide at home?

How will you check whether my child is engaging with their work and how will I be informed if there are concerns?

 

How will you assess my child’s work and progress?

Feedback can take many forms and may not always mean extensive written comments for individual children. For example, whole-class feedback or quizzes marked automatically via digital platforms are also valid and effective methods, amongst many others. Our approach to feeding back on student work is as follows:

 

Additional support for students with particular needs

How will you work with me to help my child who needs additional support from adults at home to access remote education?

We recognise that some students, for example, some students with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), may not be able to access remote education without support from adults at home. We acknowledge the difficulties this may place on families, and we will work with parents and carers to support those students in the following ways:

Remote education for self-isolating students

Where individual students need to self-isolate but the majority of their peer group remains in school, how remote education is provided will likely differ from the approach for whole groups. This is due to the challenges of teaching students both at home and in school.

If my child is not in school because they are self-isolating, how will their remote education differ from the approaches described above?
