The period since 23 March 2020 has been one of great innovation in remote education. A wide range of approaches have been developed, tested and refined. Despite the challenges, remote education has made a significant contribution to enabling students to continue to learn and progress, and in mitigating any widening of the attainment gap for the disadvantaged.
The Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) has found that the effectiveness of remote teaching is determined by many of the same factors as determine the effectiveness of live classroom teaching. For example:
- ensuring pupils receive clear explanations
- supporting growth in confidence with new material through scaffolded practice
- application of new knowledge or skills
- enabling pupils to receive feedback on how to progress
Remote Learning at the Academy
Most pupils returned to school full time at the start of the autumn term 2020 and then returned to home learning again at the start of the spring term 2021.
The information shared on the Primary and Secondary Phase remote learning pages is designed to support parents and students to understand the remote learning offer at our academy. What is expected of the academy, what is expected of the students, and how it all works. More in-depth detail has been provided to parents throughout the year through letters home and news updates, however, this page serves as a reminder of key points.
