Remote Learning Plan

 Remote Teaching & Learning Contingency Plan

1. Individual staff have symptoms: 

  • set work for all classes on Google Classroom from home if well enough to do so. If unwell and unable to set work, ask the Head of Department to do so.

2. If individual students have to self-quarantine 

  • teachers will set work on google classroom. The work set will follow the same curriculum as taught to the rest of the class.( *teachers must save seating plans on Edulink )

3. If a year group is sent home:

  • teachers will continue to deliver the curriculum to that year group “live” through Google Meets

4. In the event of  full closure of school:

  •  teachers will follow a blended approach to delivering their curriculum to each year group. 

  • Lessons will be scheduled for access by students by 8.30 each day

  • On-line lessons will last approximately 30 minutes live (or set 1 hours work to cover two lessons) Additional Challenge (extension) work should be part of every lesson.

The minimum expectations of the blended curriculum for each year group is as follows:


Curriculum (academic)

Curriculum (pastoral)
