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.

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
  • If students are ill, they must email their teacher where possible to let them know or contact the school on 01204 333300
  • Teachers will contact you to give you PRAISE, to check on how you and your family are doing and will chase up any tasks that need to be completed when appropriate.
  • We will do our best to set appropriate and challenging work for students to complete so they can still make good progress. All we ask in return is that students (if well) give 100% effort to completing their tasks every week.

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.

    1 lesson = 50 mins: below are the number of lessons students will receive each week

    • 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.

     

    Our Expectations

    • Create a Learning Timetable to follow each week. This will help students organise their time so they are completing the work that is required.  It will also help your family manage the home situation should you all be self-isolating or someone in your household is ill.  We have given you an example to follow below.  You can also create your own if you wish.
    • The Year 9 example timetable includes the three option block classes; e.g. if you are in 9A/Hi1 (history) that class is in Option Block A; if you are in 9B/Hc1 (catering) that class is in Option Block B.

  • Year 10 Remote Learning

    How long should my child be spending on Remote Learning?

    Year 10 students will follow the timetable below. They will receive broadly the same curriculum time online as they would if they were in school: English, Maths and Science = 5 x 50 min lessons / Option A, Option B, Option C = 3 x 50 min lessons / PE = 1 x 50 min lesson

    You will need to login at the right time for your class when your class is being delivered; e.g. if you are in 10APo1, that class is in Option Block A, therefore you need to make sure you login to Google Classroom at 12.30pm every Wednesday.Lessons will be taught in 2 hour 30 minute blocks with 2 periods each day. Lessons will start at 9am and finish at 3pm with lunch 11.30am – 12.30pm (see timetable below).
