Remote Education Provision - Information for Parents
This information is intended to inform you about what you can expect from remote education at EGA.
The remote curriculum: what is taught to pupils at home
Students who are self isolating at home will be able to access work for all of their lessons on google classroom. They will also be able to submit work for feedback through google classroom.
How will my child access any online remote education?
All students will have access to Chromebooks under our ‘Chromebooks for all’ scheme. Lessons will be delivered by google classroom. Other resources will also be posted in google classroom. Educake may be used for quizzing purposes in some subjects. If you need to purchase or lease a chromebook please contact Mr Shemoon on email@example.com.
If my child does not have digital or online access at home, how will you support them to access remote education?
For those who require support with Wifi, we can provide dongles. Please contact Mr Shemoon on firstname.lastname@example.org If there are other reasons why students cannot access online learning, we will provide workpacks. In this case, please contact your daughter’s Head of Year. Paper based work can be posted to the school or sent as a photograph.
Engagement and feedback
What are your expectations for my child’s engagement and the support that we as parents and carers should provide at home?
We expect the same high levels of attendance, engagement and commitment to learning as in face to face education. A register will be taken every lesson and parents will receive a daily report of their daughter’s attendance,
How will you check whether my child is engaging with their work and how will I be informed if there are concerns?
Students’ engagement and work will be monitored in lessons via their submissions, quiz results and by reading and assessing their work. Where the standard of engagement drops, parents will be contacted by the class teacher or the Head of Year.
How will you assess my child’s work and progress?
Quizzes either on google forms, Educake or other platforms will be used to assess students' knowledge of the curriculum. There will be extended paragraph or essay practice in some subjects. Feedback will be given either as a whole class or on individual pieces of work.
Feedback could be daily or weekly or after online assessments.
Additional support for pupils with particular needs
How will you work with me to help my child who needs additional support from adults at home to access remote education?
We recognise that some pupils, for example some pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), may not be able to access remote education without support from adults at home. We acknowledge the difficulties this may place on families, and we will work with parents and carers to support those pupils in the following ways:
There will be regular contact from the SENCo. Where appropriate and desired, paper copies will be sent out. Teachers can set targeted work via google classroom. There will be smaller intervention groups for some students.
