Remote Learning

Isolation

There are likely to be 4 different ‘types’ of isolation. The type of isolation will depend on the individual case. In all of these isolation instances, students will be expected to continue with their work at home. All work will be set on MS TEAMS and details of how this work will be provided are shown below: 

(1). An individual student has to isolate (any year group) 

- Isolating students will take part in lessons remotely by attending lessons streamed from the academy 

- In instances where this is not appropriate, work will be set on MS Assignments. 

(2). A group of students has to isolate in (any year group) 

- Isolating students will take part in lessons remotely by attending lessons streamed from the academy 

- In instances where this is not appropriate, work will be set on MS Assignments. 

(3).  A single class has to isolate in Year 7, 8 or 9 

- Students will follow their normal timetable remotely. All lessons will be provided on MS TEAMS as per student’s normal timetable. 

(4). A whole year group has to isolate (any year group) 

- Students will follow their normal timetable remotely. All lessons will be provided on MS TEAMS as per student’s normal timetable. 

How to access work…

On the Home Learning area of the school website there are instructions/videos for how to access live lessons: https://www.salfordcity-academy.org/parents/coronavirus-information/home-learning

To access lessons in isolation instances (1) and (2) where individual students or small groups of students are isolating, students should be signed in to their MS TEAMS account at 8:30am, ready for registration/tutor period. Students should do the same at the start of each lesson and open the class team for the subject that they have on their timetable (see example below). Teachers will send them an invite to join the lesson remotely and students should accept this. 

Students attendance at these live lessons will be monitored and students should complete the following during these remote lessons:

(i). Record the subject, title and key words for the lesson on a Word document (or paper if students prefer)

(ii). Watch the lesson and use the chat function to communicate with the teacher

(iii).  Complete activities set by the teacher during the lesson

(iv).  Complete any homework set by the teacher

(v).  If accessing a remote live lesson is not appropriate e.g. a practical lesson in Technology, work will be set on MS Assignments and students will be directed to this work

 

To access lessons in isolation instances (3) and (4), where a whole class or whole year group is isolating, students should follow the system that operated during lockdown (Jan 2021). Students should sign into their MS TEAMS account ready for registration/tutor period at 8:30am. Students will receive invites to all of their lessons and they should attend these lessons for all of their subjects. Students can access these lessons through their MS TEAMS calendar (green arrow) and/or their class team (yellow arrow). 

In addition… 

Whilst they are isolating students can also support their work in subjects by using the United Learning and Oak Academy lessons that have been created for learning at home. Students should use the link below to access these lessons. Knowledge Organisers are also extremely useful and can be used with the activities that are available on the website.
