This information is intended to provide clarity and transparency to students and parents or carers about what to expect from remote education where national or local restrictions require entire cohorts (or bubbles) to remain at home.
For details of what to expect where individual pupils are self-isolating, please see the final section of this page.
The remote curriculum – what is taught to students at home
A students 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 pupils being sent home?
The academy will be in contact with you to ensure that you have access to the technology required to work effectively from home. You will be provided with links to the National Oak Academy with lessons linked to your current topics of study.
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?
When a student bubble is working from home we will:
• Teach the same curriculum remotely as we do in school.
• Teach the same curriculum remotely as we do in school wherever possible and appropriate. However, we have needed to make some adaptations to long term planning in some subjects. For example, focussing on non practical elements of courses and focussing on skills and content that is more conducive to remote education.
• Deliver all lessons via Teams following the same timetable and timings as in school
• Provide live interaction with teachers for all lessons.
