Recording of Live streaming Lessons
In the interest of safeguarding and so that students can view live streams/lessons at a later date, all live teaching will be recorded by staff and uploaded to Google Classroom following the session. Students should participate in live lessons in a suitable learning environment which will not jeopardise your family’s privacy or disturb the live lesson for others. As always at Werneth, we have high expectations for conduct of students who participate in live lessons and anyone not meeting our expectations may be muted from the lesson or removed completely from it.
We will also be offering the opportunity in KS4 Dance and Drama lessons for students to participate in live lessons with their cameras on. This is so that their teachers are better able to feed back on student's work. If your child is taking part with their camera on they should ensure no other family members are visible on the screen. You may wish for your son/daughter to disable their camera if they are in a live lesson and do not want their faces to be shown. Students must also be suitably dressed to appear on a live stream. All other lessons will continue to take place with an expectation of cameras turned off.
Remote education provision: information for parents
This information is intended to provide clarity and transparency to pupils and parents or carers about what to expect from remote education where national or local restrictions require entire cohorts (or bubbles) to remain at home.
For details of what to expect where individual pupils are self-isolating, please see the final section of this page.
The remote curriculum: what is taught to pupils at home
A pupil’s first day or two of being educated remotely might look different from our standard approach, while we take all necessary actions to prepare for a longer period of remote teaching.
What should my child expect from immediate remote education in the first day or two of pupils being sent home?
On the first full day of absence your child will be directed to follow their in school timetable through Google Classroom.
Following the first few days of remote education, will my child be taught broadly the same curriculum as they would if they were in school?
We broadly teach the same curriculum as we do in school. In some instances, subject leaders may reorganise the topics or time spent on topics to make sure that students learn new concepts with as much teacher input and involvement as possible. The curriculum for home learning is challenging and in line with expectations for the planned curriculum.
Remote teaching and study time each day
How long can I expect work set by the school to take my child each day?
We expect that remote education (including remote teaching and independent work) will take pupils broadly 5 hours per day. Students follow their normal in school timetable and are expected to check in with their form teacher at the beginning of each day to ensure they have an effective and smooth start to their learning. Independent work and homework may mean that your child completes additional work beyond the 5 hours, but it is also important to ensure that work is balanced with leisure.
Accessing remote education
How will my child access any online remote education you are providing?
We use Google Classroom for our lessons in school. Your child has been added to the Google Classrooms for each subject and can access these from Google directly or by following the link on the website Staff/Students>Website Learning Links> Google Classroom
If my child does not have digital or online access at home, how will you support them to access remote education?
We recognise that some pupils may not have suitable online access at home. We take the following approaches to support those pupils to access remote education:
Laptops have been issued to students who we are aware do not have devices that allow them to access online learning.
If your child does not have a device that allows them to access online learning, and you believe you need a laptop and you have no other means of accessing one please email Mr Norman. email@example.com
Subject heading: Laptop
Provide your child’s full name.
State that you require a device (laptop) to access online learning.
State if you have wifi broadband capable of viewing videos such as iPlayer or Netflix.
School hours are from 8.45am to 3.10pm.
