If you are struggling to use Google Classroom please watch the tutorial videos on the website by clicking the link below or via the Learning menu tab.
If you have a subject specific question please ask through the classroom or email your teacher. If you require pastoral support please email your form tutor, they will be trying to make contact with you over the next few days.
If you do not have access to a device or internet at home to do these lessons please ask your parents or guardians to contact your form tutor. If you are feeling ill and can't do your work on the day then just let your teachers know.
This protocol outlines what is expected of you during remote learning. Remember we want you to return to school as soon as possible and as safely as possible. Please look after yourselves and remember this is NOT a school holiday.
You will be able to contact your teachers via email and via Google Classroom. Please be polite – write an email to a teacher in the same respectful way that you would speak to them in person (Sir, Miss etc.). Teachers may not respond immediately but will try to get back to you at some point during the school day. All work should still be completed to a high standard and there are a couple of guidance points below to help you achieve this:
In all subjects you will be expected to press the hand in button once you have completed your work – this includes subjects where work has been completed on another platform. E.g. Maths where work has been completed on Hegarty.
The evidence you supply will vary depending on the subject that you are doing the work on. Some subjects may ask for evidence to be sent through programs like Hegarty, Educake, Quizlet or Bedrock, alternatively they may ask you to upload a document or picture of your work to Google Classroom itself.
When working from home you should stick to a routine and complete the three lessons worth of work on the day it is set. This should be wherever possible in the usual time that the lesson would be. Any work that is set for you will be planned to take 90 minutes – it is expected that you use as much of this time as you need to complete the work.
If a teacher has given you feedback on how to improve your work you should respond to that feedback. Either by correcting work, improving a section of your work or re-submitting if required.
If you are in KS3 you have been added to a KS3 Reading classroom. There is a task for you to complete each day in reading time here. If you are in Y10 or 11 you can complete your self-quizzing as normal.
You can find guides on how to use Google Classroom on the school website by clicking learning and then Google Classroom. If you are ill and are worried about not being able to complete your work then please ask your parents or guardians to contact school or email your form tutor. This message will be passed on to your teachers.
