Statement: Distance Learning at Oldbury Wells
Appendix: Communications Statement
Please click here for a student friendly guide to distance learning.
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 distance learning sites such as SatchelOne or Microsoft Teams, please visit our Learning Zone and Online Safety page. Alternatively contact the school: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
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:
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.
