Remote Education

Supporting Learning When Students are Absent

If a student is absent from school they will be able to access work, including lessons taking place that day, using MSTeams. Every child in the school has a Microsoft Teams account. Students have been shown how to access these accounts as part of their ICT lessons. In their Teams account there is a “team” for each of their subject areas. For each lesson that takes place in school, the resources for this lesson are uploaded to the relevant class team.

As well as being a useful resource allowing students to keep up with their learning if they are absent, these lessons also provide a bank of resources that can be used for revision and consolidation of learning.

Full details of how to access Teams, how to access where the lesson resources are stored, and more general guidance including ‘how-to’ videos is available below.

Details on how to access and use TEAMs is included in the file “How to access Microsoft Teams”.

Other resources to support learning

There are two new sources of online learning available to students and parents, one from BBC bitesize  and one from ‘Oak National Academy’ which has been set up by the DfE We have looked at the resources on these sites and they are really high quality. BBC bitesize, in particular, has tutorial videos, excerpts from textbooks, and exam questions from the exam board of the child’s choosing. It also has video lessons that can be found on BBC iplayer.

Both of these resource banks are based around a virtual curriculum with lessons released day by day (bitesize uploads week by week). Some of our teachers may be using parts of these lessons if it fits into what they need to teach. If you would like extra activities for your child please do give them a look, they are interesting and informative.
