Our Online Learning Offer

From Monday 11th January 2021, students will be experiencing learning throughout the school day in a different way. Learning will be delivered online, ‘live’ through Microsoft Teams.

Teachers will teach students during the usual timetable slots – including form at the start and end of the day – although these will be at the slightly amended times shown below.

9.00am – 9.15am: Form time
9.30am – 10.15am: Lesson 1
10.30am – 11.15am: Lesson 2
11.30am – 12.15pm: Lesson 3
12.15pm – 1.00pm: Lunch
1.00pm – 1.45pm: Lesson 4
2.00pm – 2.15pm: Form time
2.30pm – 3.15pm: Lesson 5 (Yr11 only – if on timetable)

It is essential that all the students engage fully with this provision. There is no time to waste.

Students are not expected to wear uniform when attending online, however they must be dressed appropriately. See the full set of expectations for online learning via the link here.

There may be rare times when certain lessons are not delivered live. This could be because staff sickness and absence, but there will be work set on Show My Homework to do during that timetable session.

If a child is ill, including cases of covid, and won’t be participating with their live lessons then their absence must be reported to the school, via the main office (please do not dial the option for the absence office).

The school will keep in touch with parents and students during this time through: live teaching sessions, form time with the form tutor, calls made by the school team for absence from online learning and a fortnightly Performance Review with a follow up call made by tutors if any concerns arise.

Students should make sure they have the necessary login details and get ready to start learning online through live teaching on Microsoft Teams.  If you need your ‘show-my-homework’ reset, please try to get in touch with Ms Ellis at EllisG@eastbrookschool.org
