Continuity of Teaching and Learning to ensure effective remote learning

Our whole school approach to remote learning will replicate the effectiveness of live classroom teaching:

• Ensuring students receive clear explanations
• Supporting growth in confidence with new material through scaffolded practice
• Application of new knowledge or skills
• Enabling students receive feedback on how to progress

Whole school expectation:

• School work will be set daily according to the timetable
• Students will be expected to work on the number of subjects on their timetable per day
• Communication will be through SMHW and Google Classroom
• Work will be appropriate to the age and stage of the learner
• Work will be completed by all students
• Work will be monitored, assessed and feedback given
