Beal High School is committed to providing access to high quality remote learning for students who are unable to attend school.
We want the experience of remote learning to demonstrate the same factors that make classroom teaching highly effective. For example:
- Ensuring pupils receive clear explanations
- Supporting growth in confidence with new material through practice
- Application of new knowledge and skills
- Enabling pupils to receive feedback on how to progress
These characteristics are more important than the medium of delivery.
Beal High School will use a single interactive platform, Show My Homework, for remote education provision. Every student and teacher has access to this platform through their school email account.
All remote learning will be uploaded to this platform and may be enhanced by links to other application such as Microsoft Teams, Moodle, MyMaths, Kerboodle or Oak Academy for example.
The platforms and applications used will allow for work to be ‘handed in’ and it will be marked if the work would have been assessed had the student been in the classroom.
The normal full planned curriculum will be accessible to students and be available from the first day of any absence.
Students will be asked to follow their normal timetable when learning at home. For example, if they have Science period 1 on a Monday they should complete the Science work set for this lesson in that time slot (lessons will be numbered sequentially). This will ensure that students follow the routine of a normal school day and we would ask that parents and carers support with this as much as possible.
Heads of Department will check the quality of work set, class teachers will monitor completion, assess the work and feedback as appropriate and form tutors will ensure that students are provided with the full range of remote learning. Quality assurance is described overleaf.
