Remote Learning September 2020 Onwards…
As a result of the increased transmission of COVID-19 both locally and nationally there is a possibility that students may be required to isolate and therefore work ‘remotely’, from home. Where students are isolating but not ill, it is expected that they follow their daily timetable and access remote work through Teams. If individual students are required to isolate, then work will be set on Teams that reflects the work being completed in school at that time. In the event that a year group bubble closes, then students will be expected to attend live ‘remote’ lessons through Teams. Class teachers will set up the remote lessons and students will be able to access them through the class Team ‘chat’ aspect, in line with timetabled lessons.
Students understand how to use Teams, however, further guidance and support for both students and parents is available below:
You should log in using your school username (email@example.com) and password.
Once in Office 365 or the Teams app you should select ‘Teams’ from the top/side of the screen. From here you will be able to access each of the ‘Teams’ for your timetables classes / subjects
To support with accessing live lessons please see the Student Guide below.
If you have any issues accessing the systems please contact It using the following email address: StudentITSupport@bkcat.co.uk
Microsoft Teams, Support and Resources
In order to support students when learning from home we have collated key content, tasks and activities for students to complete. Each subject area has identified work that should be completed for each year group / key stage. Further details are available from individual class teachers through Microsoft Teams.
Microsoft Teams has risen in popularity since lockdown measures were introduced. Our school has adopted this platform to help with remote learning. It has the ability to chat, video call and host online meetings with as many as 10,000 people. But as with any video conferencing software or live streaming app, there can be a number of things to consider around security and privacy. That’s why we are sharing this guide to help parents and carers understand exactly what ‘Teams’ is all about. Guidance for Parents
Students can now access Accelerated Reader at home by clicking on the following link and logging in as they do when in school. Studnets will not be able to access AR if they try and log on using Google. So you can now read books and take AR Quizzes at home by using the following link https://ukhosted41.renlearn.co.uk/1916578
If you have any issues, please contact your teacher on Teams.
