Remote Learning

Online Provision for Isolating Students

It is essential that students who are self-isolating continue to make progress through the curriculum. With this in mind, work will be set for students self-isolating using google classroom. Google classroom is available to use through the ‘login’ link on the school website but can also be accessed through the google classroom app. This can be downloaded through the iOS and android app stores.

If you are unable to access the internet, please contact the school to request a work pack.

Teachers are providing the resources that are being used in the classroom for students that are at home and so those students that are self-isolating are able to access the learning at the same time they would have been in the classroom. Teachers will respond to any student queries they have on the work that has been set.

It is obviously more difficult to monitor pupil understanding and engagement in a remote lesson. The checking of understanding would normally be performed through questioning and assessment in the classroom. It is essential that students attempt any tasks associated with each lesson. Gaps in knowledge will then be addressed on the students return to the classroom through low stakes testing, questioning and formal assessment.

In order for your Son/Daughter to access work when self-isolating they must log into google classroom and access their work through each class code and the class drive folder.

If you have any issues with logging in to google classroom, please contact our IT support team at helpdesk@ald.merciantrust.org.
