Oaks Park High School
Remote Learning Procedures
In response to the expiration of the Coronavirus Act 2020 on 24th March, Oaks Park High School sets out its procedures to deliver ‘remote education as a short-term measure…where in person attendance is not possible’.
Scenarios where remote education should be provided
1. Remote education procedures when school leaders decide that it is not possible for their setting to open safely, or that opening would contradict guidance from local or central government.
Whole school closure: due to adverse weather conditions or government direction e.g. lockdown
Move to remote teaching timetable online.
Teachers to deliver online live lessons via Google Classroom/Google Meet where feasible. If the teacher is unable to deliver the live lesson, work will be set on ClassCharts.
Whole school closure – due to industrial strike action
Students to consult ClassCharts for set work and follow subject specific links to remote learning here.
Year group closure
Teachers will set work on ClassCharts. In addition, students can follow subject specific links to remote learning here.
2. Remote education procedures for occasions when individual pupils, for a limited duration, are unable to physically attend their school but are able to continue learning.
- Year Managers to notify teaching staff of pupil absence as soon as reasonably practicable and direct them to set work on ClassCharts.
- Year Managers to monitor the setting of work and follow up with teachers/Subject Leaders if necessary.
- Work set by teachers should be equivalent in length to the core teaching pupils would receive in school and include time for pupils to complete tasks independently.
What to provide
- Teachers will continue to use the digital platforms ClassCharts and Google Classroom for remote education provision to allow interaction, assessment and feedback.
- Teachers may set work using departmental resources, suitable for remote education.
- Teachers in core subjects (English/Maths/Science) have received training in how to effectively use Century Tech in remote education provision and work may be set on this platform.
- All teachers have received training in how to effectively use online education resources such as BBC Bitesize in remote education provision.
- Year Managers will support pupils in overcoming barriers to digital access where possible by, for example:
- distributing Chromebooks for pupils to use at home
- providing printed resources, such as textbooks and workbooks, to structure learning
- monitoring the engagement of pupils who are learning remotely and work with families to rapidly identify solutions where engagement is a concern.
- Teachers will respond to submitted work according to departmental marking and feedback policy, but acknowledgement of a pupil’s work is encouraged.
- Regular quality assurance will take place regarding the quality and delivery of remote education.
- Senior Leader with overarching responsibility for the quality and delivery of remote education is Justine Sheehan (Deputy Headteacher)
