‘Remote Learning’ refers to the provision of work, teacher support, assessment and feedback from teachers to students in the event that normal lessons are unable to be delivered face-to-face.
Our Remote Learning Policy is rooted in the following principles :
- Learning remotely brings its own challenges and opportunities, but it is important to acknowledge that it can never fully replicate a classroom experience.
- Where we have to operate ‘remote’ provision we aim to continue to provide an excellent education to all of our students.
- We want our pupils to be able to benefit from the advantages of remote learning (greater independence, being able to learn at their own pace, more flexibility, being able to pursue their own interests) whilst also providing them with structure and interaction.
- Interacting with each other on-line is no different than interacting face-to-face: we are required to maintain the principles of respect, dignity, prudence, concern for and protection of others, and safety in all interactions.

In the event of a school closure due to snow, remote provision will be provided as follows:
- On the first day of closure, work will be provided on Teams and / or Satchelone for students to complete independently. There will be no live lessons or live registrations.
2. From day two, usual remote provision, as per our school policy for a national lockdown, will take effect, i.e.
- All students will have a ‘live’ morning registration via teams with their tutor at 8.35; there will be no ‘live’ check in at the end of the day with tutors.
- A blended approach to remote teaching will take place which may include ‘live’ lessons where appropriate and relevant to do so via Teams, but as a minimum starting off and ending a lesson, ‘live.’
Any student requiring support with being able to access remote provision should ensure that it is brought to the relevant Head of Year’s attention.
