Guidance for self isolating students
If students are self isolating, they can access remote learning via the MS Teams platform.

12 October 2020:
Following a number of students having to self-isolate, we have decided to introduce a two week trial of live lessons for the 6th form. It is expected that students in self-isolation attend all their lessons as normal, per their school timetable, via TEAMS unless they are unwell and therefore unable to complete school work. If this is the case then a parent/guardian must contact school to inform us. As with any other school absence students are expected to catch up with work they have missed when they are well enough to do so.
Protocol for students joining live lessons:
• Students to join with microphone muted and camera disabled. Your teacher will make a note of your attendance.
• Teacher to record the lesson.
• No students to be shown on the camera under any circumstances. Staff camera to be off unless required for modelling/explanation.
• Students to use the ‘hand up’ function should they need to ask a question/seek support.
• If students are marked as X then they should be in online lessons. Behaviour points should be issued for students who join your lesson late.
• If students marked with an X do not join the online lesson, a behaviour point for truancy should be issued and left as 'unresolved'. A behaviour point for 'not enough work completed' should also be issued as they have not completed the lesson (sixth formers should not feel that they have the option of not attending the lesson and catching up on the work).
• Behaviour points can be issued at the discretion of the teacher for not enough work completed if students in attendance are not engaging with the online lesson (this is dependent on the lesson itself and the opportunities offered for interaction through hands-up etc).
• Behaviour points for homework not completed should be issued as usual.
Please contact school if you have any questions at all.
