Swanwick Hall School remote education provision: information for families
Remote education for self-isolating students
Where individual students need to self-isolate but the majority of their peer group remains in school, how remote education is provided will likely differ from the approach for whole groups. This is due to the challenges of teaching students both at home and in school.
If a small group of students is sent home from school to self-isolate, then their class teachers will provide PowerPoints for their lessons on Show My Homework. The work that students will be asked to complete at home will be the same as the work that students who are in school are doing. Students will be expected to hand in their work to their class teachers on their return to school.
If a child is self-isolating for reasons not linked to school (eg if a family member is waiting for the result of a test), then students should use the Oak National Academy website to access lessons which link to the topics they are studying in school.
Examples of online lessons
In this period of remote learning, we understand that our students are unable to access our library. In order to ensure all students can still access books and read at home, we have collated a list of virtual libraries which are currently providing access to a range of books for free.
