Providing Remote Education
We are ambitious for all our pupils to fulfil their potential whether learning in school or at home. There may be times when pupils need to access learning remotely and our school is committed to providing a high quality offer underpinned with regular personal support and appropriate technology and devices. Pupils needing to learn remotely will be offered a laptop by the school.
All pupils learning at home will be contacted regularly throughout any period of remote learning. Welfare calls will be made by school staff once or twice a week. Door step visits may also be an option.
We aim to ensure consistency in our school’s approach to remote learning and to share clear expectations for all members of the school community. We will provide appropriate guidelines for data protection and safeguarding. Our Remote Learning Policy can be found here.
Remote learning activities are also offered to allow pupils to extend and enrich the work they are doing in the classroom.
Pupils will need to use their school Office365 login when signing in to www.office.com to use Mircrosoft Word, Powerpoint or other office software packages.
Remote Education and Covid-19
During Lockdowns or prolonged absences due to the Covid-19 pandemic, pupils at Bower Grove School had access to remote learning. These included virtual lessons using Microsoft TEAMS, online learning tasks set by teachers and activities from recommended learning websites.
After Friday 5th March 2021, lessons will no longer be offered remotely to pupils via Microsoft TEAMS.
A list of websites used by our school to support remote education and learning in the classroom can be viewed using the link shown below.
Some websites require account details to gain access to the pupil's account. Pupils and parents/carers are supplied with these details but please contact class teachers if you require further assistance with this.
