Work is expected to be submitted back to teachers via either Seesaw or Microsoft Teams, but there is no pressure to do this immediately. Individual teachers will make clear their expectations around submitting work when individual tasks are set.
Assessment and marking will continue with key pieces of work being used to assess knowledge and understanding. Feedback will be provided via TEAMs or Seesaw. This may be in the form of written or verbal feedback and may take place during the lesson or on individual pieces of work.
Teaching staff will be keeping a close eye on academic work and will be regularly assessing and reviewing pupils’ attainment and progress. This assessment will continue in line with our usual framework, taking into account both effort and attainment. Where there are specific concerns in any of these areas, our usual school approach will apply; subject teachers will address individual concerns, whilst form tutors will manage any broader issues.
Homework will not be set initially to allow pupils and parents time to adjust to the new online learning programme and working from home. If you would like additional work for your child, please contact your child’s Form Teacher.
There is an expectation that all pupils read daily, aside from their timetable. For those pupils in Nursery who are unable to read independently, teachers will be providing online storytime sessions.
