Remote Learning


As government guidelines now state that close contacts of a Covid-19 case no longer need to self-isolate unless advised by Public Health England, we do not expect any bubble closures. However, given the changing nature of these circumstances the information below details contingency plans should we again need to close student bubbles. 

Students who test positive for Covid-19 are required to self-isolate and will be able to access lessons using Microsoft Teams and the United Learning Curriculum Website. There may be certain circumstances where this is not possible, in this case learning resources will be provided using Arbor.

Conduct in Live Lessons

DO:

  • Ask questions related to the learning
  • Ask for help if you do not understand
  • Engage with the independent tasks that are set
  • Enter your FULL name when entering the chat facility.
  • Enjoy the lesson! This is a live broadcast, so you will not be seen or heard. You will just be able to see the teacher, their lesson and hear them teach you.

DO NOT:

  • Type anything into the Q&A box that isn’t related to learning. If you do, it will not be published anyway, so nobody will be able to see it.
  • Give the link to anybody that is not in your year group at The Lowry Academy.
