If SOME pupils in a class are required to remain at home, class teachers put a copy of the class materials on Teams / The Class Notebook. Pupils must work through these materials to keep up with the rest of the class. Teachers use Go4Schools to provide any further specific information to pupils in their class. The pupils who are at home do not automatically receive live teaching. However, teachers may try to involve pupils in an on-site lesson via the class Team, depending on the style and content of the lesson. Pupils should check Go4Schools regularly to check and must attend remotely when requested by their teacher. Where possible, form tutors register the pupils via Teams alongside their peers who are in school.
There may be times when ALL pupils in a particular class or classes are required to remain at home. In this case, ALL teaching for the affected classes moves to a remote provision. Pupils are expected to log onto the class Team at the start of the lesson to be registered. They are ALL taught remotely.
There may be times when a whole year group is required to remain at home. In this instance, ALL teaching AND registration moves to a remote provision. Senior Leaders communicate this to parents and carers. In this case, pupils should log into Teams at home at 8.25am each morning. Form tutors start a Teams meeting at 8.30am, taking the register and checking that pupils are well. If a pupil is unwell, parents / carers must contact the school in the normal way.
We have made a series of tutorial videos to help you learn how to use the systems we use. You will find these below.
