A Guide to Remote Education

This information is intended to provide clarity and transparency to parents or carers about what to expect from remote education where national or local restrictions require our entire school population to remain at home (except vulnerable children and children of key workers). At present, we expect this to be the case from 6th January 2021 until and including Friday 12th February 2021. 

The remote curriculum: what should my child expect from immediate remote education during the first day or two of pupils being sent home?

A pupil’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. Initially, work will be undertaken independently by pupils. student work will be set on Google Classroom. This work will need to be completed independently until they are instructed that live online lessons are ready to begin.

 

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?

Your child will be taught the same subjects that they would be taught at school. Although they will receive less “live teaching” hours than they would usually, they will be learning for the same amount of time as they will also be completing independent work to supplement and enrich their live lessons. 

Remote teaching and study time each day

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

We expect that remote education (including remote teaching and independent work) will take pupils broadly the following number of hours: 

Key Stage 3 (Y7-9)

4 hours 20 mins teaching and 40 mins home learning per day

Key Stage 4 (Y10-11)

4 hours 20 mins and 1 hour home learning per day

Key Stage 5 (Y12-13)

3 hours teaching a day; 12 hours home learning per week
