The priority should always be for schools to deliver high-quality face-to-face education to all pupils. Remote education should only ever be considered as a short term measure and as a last resort where in person attendance is not possible. this information is intended to provide clarity and transparency to pupils and parents or carers about what to expect from remote education in cases where it is not possible or contrary to government guidance for some or all pupils to attend face-to-face education.
This might include:
Pupils are provided a full timetable of learning, equivalent to the school day.
On the first day of absence due to school closure, or if individual pupils, for a limited duration, are unable to physically attend their school but are well, then they should visit the Learning from Home section of the school website https://www.steugene.camden.sch.uk/learning-from-home and look at the full timetable of learning, equivalent to the school day, provided for each class.
We expect that remote education (including remote teaching and independent work) will take pupils broadly the following number of hours each day:
Remote education may be provided in a number of ways:
We recognise that some pupils may not have suitable online access at home.
We take the following approaches to support those pupils to access remote education:
The school has access to a limited number of Chromebooks for loan to families to support learning at home. We expect that some children in home settings may have to share devices. Parents need to make contact with the school.
In some circumstances the school may send home packs of textbooks and workbooks. Pupils can return the completed work to school once they are able to attend.
A timetable for each day is provided.
Pupils are expected to follow the full timetable of work. However, the school understands this may not always be possible. We understand that parents may be working or looking after young children and so the daily timetable is a suggested timetable for a full day of learning. We ask parents to please help their child to join where they can and where it is convenient for them to do so.
We recognise that some pupils, for example some pupils 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 pupils in the following ways:
