Learning at home can be challenging for both children and parents, and so clarity of what Nethersole will be providing, and what will be expected of children will support this to be an effective process.
The underpinning principles behind our remote provision remain the same as in class teaching; explaining difficult concepts, clear modelling of answers and providing accurate and timely feedback. The remote curriculum will continue to deliver the normal planned in school curriculum.
We will continue to set work and teach to the full timetable, meaning every lesson will have work set on the day of which that lesson would have normally taken place.
Our remote curriculum aims to be as inclusive as possible and is designed with the knowledge that not every student’s home learning set up is the same. Therefore, we have designed a flexible and balanced curriculum diet of independent study and teacher designed activity.
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 PE/ DT & Art, subjects may decide to teach different topics or units that do not require practical input). All other subjects will continue to follow the normal curriculum.
Accessing Remote Education
Additional support for students with particular needs
We recognise that some children, 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 children.
