Distance Learning On the Website

In the event of any future local or national lock-down the school is well placed to offer distance learning through the Satchel One (Show my Homework) application. This is the school’s main method for sharing distance learning.  However, where practical the school will make use of Microsoft Teams to support this and offer a live element to teaching.

If you require any support with this app – please see the support materials here: Show my Homework Support. Alternatively contact the school: school@oldburywells.com

As a school we will continue to follow a student’s normal school timetable. Therefore, ensuring a broad and full curriculum is delivered.

Any work set will be differentiated to support or challenge students and will be assessed in line with the school’s normal marking and assessment policy.

As per the DFE guidance we will allocate distance learning work based on the national or local picture. In any scenario we will adopt a tiered approach which will influence the distance learning offer.

 

How can I access distance learning work for my child? 

Tier One:

This is our current position: where all students are expected to be in school: as a result of this, distance learning does not apply. In this situation work would only be offered to students who are self-isolating due to the official guidance. This includes:

  • Pupil told to self-isolate for official reasons as part of Track & Trace or as part of a household.
  • Pupil tested positive for Covid 19.
  • Pupil has returned from a non-term time Holiday and has been required to quarantine as part of government guidance.

If you meet any of these criteria, please inform the school via absence line immediately. In this instance, your child should access the generic work through the national academy: https://classroom.thenational.academy, complete any homework tasks set in Satchel One and re-visit any prior learning.  From the time of booking a test we will endeavor to issue subject specific work set by the students teachers in line with their timetabled lessons within three working days.
