Our Remote Learning Strategy

ALL students need a laptop/PC / tablet or phone that has:

  • Access to the internet
  • Access to Google Chrome
  • Access to Google Classroom (ALL students have been trained on this)

NOTE: if you are using a phone please ensure it is using your Wifi and not your data.

Your child’s end of year report will show you how well they have engaged with remote learning whilst we have not been in school. It is highly likely students with a weekly engagement score of 3 or 4 will have fallen behind where we expect them to be in September. To ensure no student is disadvantaged all the remote learning that has been set since lockdown will be available for students to complete over the summer if they haven’t already done so. This will ensure students are not disadvantged and they are ‘September ready’.

If students catch up the work they haven’t completed over the summer they will be in a strong position when they return in September. If students are unable to complete any work they have missed over the summer we will organinse catch up programmes throughout the first half term to enable students to achieve things they never thought they could.

A new Remote Learning Strategy will be launched throught the induction period when students return in September. This will involve more ‘live’ lessons and live feedback.

How do I know what my child needs to do each week?

Use the blue curriculum page link above to gain access to your child’s remote learning planner each week. On the curriculum page is where you can filter your child’s Year Group and Subject.  Once in the subject area you will find the Remote Learning Planner,  click this to access the home study area.  This maps out the work/tasks we expect your child to complete each week.  There will also be links to the online resources and tasks underneath.

  • Students are to complete all work that is set for them each week.
  • Students have the opportunity to catch up any work they have not completed over the summer.
  • Unfortunately, teachers will not be available to provide feedback to any remote learning which is completed over the summer but we still do encourage students to have a go and put in maximum effort.
  • Teachers and leaders in the school will review all work completed over the summer when we return in September and from this we will coordinate catch up programmes.

ICT Help and Support

  • Should you have any technical difficulties please ask students to email their teacher to inform them of this and we will try to get one of our ICT technicians to support you where possible.
  • Alternatively, please ring the school on 01204 333300 and we will put you through to one of our ICT technicians or email them directly on support@little-lever.bolton.sch.uk
  • Years 7 - 9 Remote Learning

    Students will not follow their timetabled lessons but will be set work that will be broadly in line with the number of lessons they would have in that subject each week (see table below). Students will be expected to complete this work each week (if well).  Where possible we have chosen online platforms that will make it easy for students to receive feedback and for us to monitor completion.  Please bear in mind that teachers will have families and may also contract the virus.  We have built in contingency plans so learning will not be disrupted as much as possible, but we cannot guarantee this.  We will do all we can so please bear with us in what will be a very difficult time ahead for everyone.

    • Teachers will set students work using a Remote Learning Planner. This will tell you what work you need to complete each week.
    • The Remote Learning Planner will be available before the start of the following week so you are clear on what you need to do.
    • The Remote Learning Planner will be available to view on our website each week. There is a link to this section of the website below.
    • GOOGLE CLASSROOM codes will be available on the Remote Learning Planner for students to view should they need them.
    • Any links to online learning platforms such as Hegarty, Seneca and even Google will be available underneath the Remote Learning Planner.

    We are also introducing ‘Feedback Fridays’

    Feedback Friday’s will operate from 9am -12pm.  It is an opportunity for students to ask questions via Google Classroom to their teachers in English, maths and science in Y7 to Y9.

    Teachers will be available live and will respond either via messaging on Google Classroom or will invite students to a face-to-face session via Google Meet if it needs a more detailed explanation.

  • Year 10 Remote Learning

    New Year 10 Remote Timetable – Week Commencing 22nd June 2020

    When Year 10 return to school on 22nd June the remote learning timetable for Year 10 will change to reflect the time students have in school.

    Those students who are not in school receiving their face to face session in English maths and science will attend one of their Option Subject sessions remotely.  Remote Option Subject sessions will always take place in the morning.  These are opportunities for students to receive Live feedback and support from their Teacher.  Remote Learning for English, maths and science will take place in the afternoon.  The timetable below sets out how this will work.

    ALL Option subject sessions will operate from 9am – 12pm.   All students in each cohort who are not in school on that day can log into their session between 9am and 12pm for their Option subject to receive live feedback, support and guidance from the teacher at that time.  Students do not have to log in at these times as long as they complete all the tasks set to the best of their ability before 5pm on Sunday evening.  It is simply an opportunity for students to receive additional Live feedback and support if they need it.

    Each afternoon from 1.15pm to 3.30pm students will have the opportunity to receive live feedback, support and guidance from English, maths and science teachers in line with the timetable above.  Students do not have to log in at these times in English, maths and science as long as they complete all the tasks set to the best of their ability before 5pm on Sunday evening.  It is simply an opportunity for students to receive additional Live feedback and support if they need it.

    Catch Up Core  – this is an opportunity for any student to receive live feedback, support and guidance from teachers in English, maths and science.

    All Remote Learning and feedback sessions will be conducted through Google Classroom either directly via messaging or face to face via Google Meet.  To ensure security no other platforms will be used to conduct face-to-face sessions other than Google Meet.

    There will be a series of tasks to complete in the week for every subject.  This will be checked by teachers throughout the week with a final check at 5pm each Sunday to ensure tasks have been completed.  This should give students enough time to catch up on Friday and over the weekend should they need to.

    The current Remote Learning Planner will be set each week and will be available to view on the website.  This will explain the tasks students need to complete and will provide a link to Google Classroom with the classcode.

    We are also introducing ‘Feedback and Catch up Fridays’

    Feedback Friday’s will operate from 9am -12pm.  It is an opportunity for students to ask questions via Google Classroom to their teachers in option subjects in Year 10.  Teachers will be available live and will respond either via messaging on Google Classroom or will invite students to a face to face session via Google Meet if it needs a more detailed explanation.

    Catch up Friday will operate from 12pm – 3pm.  We have also removed the Boost session for students.  Taking into account feedback from staff and parents we have introduced a ‘Catch up Friday’ session which will allow students time to complete the remote learning tasks that have been set in English, maths, science and their Option subjects.
