Remote Learning

Remote Learning

We use our remote learning offer to supplement and enhance our existing curriculum.

In line with DfE guidance, we are able to provide high-quality remote learning to our pupils to ensure our curriculum continues to be delivered, in the event of our school, year-group 'bubbles', classes, groups or individuals being asked to self-isolate.

In October 2020, we provided parents with key information - through our Remote Learning booklet - regarding our remote learning offer, ensuring that families can familiarise themselves with this.


Microsoft Teams

At Spa, we use Microsoft Teams to How to get organized and stay productive with Microsoft Teams! - Microsoft  Tech Communitysupplement and enhance our curriculum. This may be through providing extra independent practice on recently or previously-taught topics in the classroom and/or supplement in-school catch-up interventions.

Our remote learning uses Microsoft Teams to provide pupils with daily teaching sessions and activities, ensuring our curriculum - as far as possible - is able to be delivered remotely, if required. Microsoft Teams allows teachers to communicate with pupils and families, providing feedback and assessing understanding. On Microsoft Teams, we make use of:

  • 'Live' lessons - allowing our staff to continue the planned curriculum;
  • Staff-developed videos and narrated powerpoints, guiding student learning;
  • High-quality and carefully-chosen teaching resources, such as MyMaths and Oak National Academy;

We recognise that not all pupils have access to technology to access our remote learning. We are working with families to understand their individual needs and preparing alternative remote learning.
