REMOTE EDUCATION PROVISION
Information for Parents
The remote curriculum: What is taught to pupils at home?
Will my child be taught the same curriculum as they would if they were in school?
Our ambition is to continue teaching our pupils the same high-quality, knowledge-rich, age-related curriculum as if they were in school but remotely. This will be from within the first day of being sent home.
What are the expectations for remote learning and how many hours will my child spend each day?
How will my child access remote learning?
This can also be accessed via our academy website: www.ninestiles.org.uk
If you are unsure or need help accessing the learning, please contact our IT Team on 07904 676956.
If my child does not have digital or online access at home, how will the school support them access remote education?
Will the structure of the lessons be different?
Although the medium of delivery has changed for teachers and students, the fundamental aspects of effective teaching and learning will be the same in lessons.
We use a combination of the following approaches to teach pupils remotely:
How will you check whether my child is engaging with their learning and how will I be informed if there are concerns?
We will be monitoring attendance to live lessons by using a daily register for all live lessons.
How will teachers assess my child’s work?
Feedback can take many forms and may not always mean extensive written comments for individual students.
How will the school help my child who needs additional support from adults at home to access remote education?
If my child is not in school because they are self-isolating, how will their remote education differ from the approaches described above?
