Remote Education – Information for Parents and Carers

This information is intended to provide clarity  for students and parents or carers regarding what to expect from remote education where national or local restrictions require entire cohorts (or bubbles) to remain at home.

The remote curriculum: what is taught to students at home

Students have access to the Google Classroom online learning platform via their personal logins.

Once logged in, students can access work from all their curriculum subjects to complete online and submit for marking.  There are set tasks available as well as recordings of live lessons.

Remote teaching and study time each day

Students who are attending half day face-to-face sessions on site at CBC are expected to access a live Biology session at home.  This session is provided twice daily to accommodate all students 10:00 – 11:00   and  13:00 – 14:00

So, for example, if a student attends CBC for a morning session they are expected to participate in the afternoon Biology lesson, and vice-versa.

Students who are not attending on site lessons at all are expected to attend the morning Biology lesson at 10:00.  After this they are expected to carry on with the set work across all other subjects from 11:15 – 14:00.

ALL students can access the daily live tutorial session on line at 14:15 – 15:00 when they can discuss any concerns about the work etc.

Accessing remote education

If a student has no access to a computer/laptop/tablet to enable them to access online remote learning, please contact the school office to submit a request for a laptop to be loaned to the student while studying from home.

Engagement and feedback

Student engagement with the online learning package will be monitored on a daily basis.  Parents or carers and students will be contacted if there are concerns regarding their level of engagement, to support and encourage students to fully engage.

Parents and carers are encouraged to contact CBC to discuss any concerns regarding online learning.

Assessment feedback

Feedback will be provided via –

  • Regular verbal feedback through live sessions both subject and tutorial based
  • Individual feedback from subject staff as a result of marking completed student work

Remote education for self-isolating students

The remote education offer will be the same as set out above and is immediately accessible.
