Blended learning is learning both in and out of the classroom. It involves students accessing materials online and learning both independently and with support at home. Our priority is to continue to provide students with high quality teaching and learning resources and pastoral care when they are not able to come into school so that they can continue to progress remotely.
Blended learning is a crucial part of our curriculum offer, and as such, we have invested heavily to ensure that students can continue learning outside of the classroom across all years and subjects. In the current climate, we face the very real possibility of self-isolation or a partial or even full closure of school.
In the event of students not being in school for any reason, we have created a provision for all students to continue learning remotely if they are well enough to do so. To enable this, students can access alternative schemes of work via the Class Notebook area of Microsoft Teams which allow them to continue with their lessons using resources created by staff and online learning platforms.
If students are self-isolating but they are well enough to work, then they are expected to do so, so that they do not fall behind with their studies. All schemes of work include instructions of what to do, but if any student is unsure, they should contact their teachers via email to find out.
