It is expected that in the event of a lockdown/bubble being sent home that the normal curriculum will be followed as far as possible, this will depend on the circumstances of the lock down, its duration and the year group(s) that is(are) involved. For example, in the event of a KS3 lock down for a short period of between 2-3 weeks, the normal curriculum would be followed. The work that is set might include work from existing SOW and/or work from the National Oak Academy (see link above). In the event of a lock down involving KS4 or KS5, the normal curriculum will be followed as far as possible to ensure that students will not be disadvantaged in their public examinations. In all cases, opportunities for face to face meetings with teachers via Google meet will be included for all years.
If the lock down is for an extended period, work will be provided according to the timetable and lessons will be taught via Google meet. Class work will be monitored for completion, accuracy and quality and teachers will provide feedback to students via Google classroom. The work that is set will take into consideration the needs of all students including those with Special Educational Needs as outlined in their pupil passports. More information will be issued at the time of the lockdown to outline the details of the remote curriculum.
In addition to the curriculum, pastoral support will continue to be provided for students to support their well being. Form tutors will keep in touch with the students in their form via telephone calls and Google meets to monitor their welfare and assembly materials and SMSC activities will also be provided.
