Remote Education Provision

Please find below information on the remote education provision at Chobham Academy. This applies to students in Years 7 to 13.

If you have any questions about our remote education provision in the first instance please contact your student’s Head of Year. Click here.

The remote curriculum: what is taught to students at home?

A pupil's first day of being educated remotely might look different from our standard approach,while we take all necessary actions to prepare for a longer period of remote teaching.

What should my child expect from immediate remote education in the first day or two of students being sent home?

Work to work through independently will be set on ShowMyHomeWork (Years 7 to 9) and MS Teams (Years 10 to 13). This will be normally only for the first day of absence.

Following the first few days of remote education, will my child be taught broadly the same curriculum as they would if they were in school?

We teach the same curriculum remotely as we do in school wherever possible and appropriate. However, we have needed to make some adaptations in some subjects. For example in practical subjects such as Physical Education, Drama, Music, Art, and Design and Technology the work will be adapted to suit homeworking. Topics will remain broadly similar to those being studied at school but will be adapted to reflect the equipment students are likely to have at home and the inability to carry out group work. With Physical Education students will be directed to the HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) workouts shared on the Chobham YouTube channel.

How long can I expect work set by the school to take my child each day?

We expect that remote education (including remote teaching and independent work) will take students broadly the following number of hours each day:

Secondary school-aged students not working towards formal qualifications this year

6 hours

Secondary school-aged students working towards formal qualifications this year

7 hours

 

Accessing remote education

How will my child access any online remote education you are providing?

The main platform we use for remote education is MS Teams. This can be accessed using your child’s @hfed.net login. This is the same log in information that students used to access the computers when on site.

If you need to be reminded of log in details these can be reset via info@chobhamacademy.org.uk .

Other platforms that we use are:

In addition, there are a range of other generic and subject specific platforms that students may be directed to. Students will be directed to these via ShowMyHomework or MS Teams.

 

If my child does not have digital or online access at home, how will you support them to access remote education?

We recognise that some students may not have suitable online access at home. We take the following approaches to support those students to access remote education:

We have a bank of laptops that are available to students who are self-isolating, we will normally check with students and parents if sending students home in the school day and provide with students as they leave. If students require a laptop and already self-isolating they can contact g.eyre@chobhamacademy.org.uk and a loan device will be arranged.

We also have a smaller bank of routers / Wi-Fi dongles. We can also through a Department of Education scheme arrange to increase your personal mobile internet quota. If you do not have an internet connection, please contact your daughter/sons head of year who will provide printed work or workbooks. Work can then be submitted for feedback via the academy reception or on students return to work (depending on the duration of absence).

How will my child be taught remotely?

We use a combination of the following approaches to teach students remotely:

The main way that students will be taught remotely is through MS Teams and live online lessons; either lessons delivered specifically to students isolating or a blended approach with some students in the classroom and some students participating from home.

There will also be some use of recording teaching both directing students to the academy YouTube channel and also other external content such as Oak National Academy lessons.

Engagement and feedback

What are your expectations for my child’s engagement and the support that we as parents and carers should provide at home?

We expect full engagement with remote education lessons at their normally timetabled lesson time. However we recognise that some students will not be able to participate fully due to either illness or home learning environment in that case they need to complete as much work as possible and contact the academy if they are struggling – via their form tutor who can provide personalised support.

We expect parents to set routines to support their education including students being up and dressed ready to start the school day. Although student’s cameras are not on being dressed for learning creates the correct mindset (though school uniform is optional). Parents should also help students find an appropriate workspace for working from home.

How will you check whether my child is engaging with their work and how will I be informed if there are concerns?

Student’s form tutors will check their engagement with remote learning on a weekly basis. Engagement includes – attending timetabled lessons, contributing to lessons, and submitting work. In addition we monitor engagement through a bespoke centralised attendance reporting system for online lessons.

Where engagement is a concern form tutors will make contact with parent carers this will either be via a telephone call or an email message.

How will you assess my child’s work and progress?

Feedback can take many forms and may not always mean extensive written comments for individual children. For example, whole-class feedback or quizzes marked automatically via digital platforms are also valid and effective methods, amongst many others. Our approach to feeding back on pupil work is as follows:

Thorough our live lessons the majority of feedback will be through teacher responding to student’s contributions to lessons either via their voice or the chat box. When tasks are set via online platforms that are self-marking – students will receive feedback instantly (for example Tassomai in Science and Educake in Geography and History). Students will also receive feedback to tasks set via MS Teams and SMHW in response to the work they have submitted.

Additional support for students with particular needs

How will you work with me to help my child who needs additional support from adults at home to access remote education?

We recognise that some students, for example some students with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), may not be able to access remote education without support from adults at home. We acknowledge the difficulties this may place on families, and we will work with parents and carers to support those students in the following ways.

In most cases students with SEND will be able to access the curriculum as taught by the classroom teacher. The teacher may make adaptations to their lessons in the same way that they do in face to face learning. If families need further support they can contact our SENCO, Ms. Warmington-Sheill (k.warmington-shiell@chobhamacademy.org.uk for specific support.

Remote education for self-isolating students

Where individual students need to self-isolate but the majority of their peer group remains in school, how remote education is provided will likely differ from the approach for whole groups. This is due to the challenges of teaching students both at home and in school.

If my child is not in school because they are self-isolating, how will their remote education differ from the approaches described above?

The approach will remain the same as above; our classrooms are equipped to deliver blended learning so students at home will join the lesson via MS Teams. However as stated on the first page of this document this may not be possible in all practical subjects in which case work will be set via SMHW/MS Teams.
