Parent Update 4

Changes to Remote Learning from 16 February 2021 

 

Following feedback from students, parents and staff, we have decided to adapt our Remote Learning programme.  From Tuesday 16 February we plan to resort back to an approach similar to that which we offered in the first week.  Families have told us that our ‘soft-start’ approach was more manageable.  In addition, and outlined below, we now have a series of Live Lessons taking place.  Please note, lessons listed are subject to change.  Changes and/or additional Live Lessons will be advertised to students via Google Classroom but the timetables below should assist students organising their time.

 

The tables below reflect the days when departments will post work on Google Classroom.  Students should be reminded of the following;

You will see we have also introduced ‘Catch-up’ days for our S1 to S3 pupils.  This is in response to feedback received from students and parents over the last two weeks through the contact team and quality assurance surveys. This day may also be a chance for a mental health break for your child where they can spend some time on a leisure activity or connecting with friends and family without feeling anxiety over not working. If your child is still looking for more work on that day we would suggest they access other sites such as BBC Bitesize.  We would note that in general quality is better than quantity and accessing some variety in tasks can break up a lack of motivation. Where a child is struggling to fully engage at S1-3, some focus at least on numeracy and literacy activities would be recommended. If for any reason you are worried about your child progress or mental health please do contact your designated contact team member as soon as possible so we can offer assistance as even with a large team it is not always possible to pick up new issues through the communication cycle.
