Remote Learning

Our Aims and Intentions

Our intention is to ensure that Paxman Academy students receive a remote learning offer that matches the level of challenge and variety that they would experience should they be in school. We recognise as a school that remote learning is challenging, and all that we ask is that students engage every day, and try their best with their work.

We aim to provide remote learning that is:

Relevant: wherever possible we endeavour to follow the planned curriculum and set work that will enable learners to progress and build their knowledge

Consistent: within subjects we adopt a common approach and set common submission tasks and have the same expectations

Accessible: we set work bearing in mind that many learners will be working with limited support and that access to devices at home will vary

Motivating: we reward learners who are engaging and we respond to messages and queries from students to show that their remote work is of value and is not optional

 

Daily Offer

Students will have 5 lessons per day set for them, as per their timetable if they were in school.

Teachers will set their work via ClassCharts, and students should log on from 9:00am each day to access the day’s work. This will include details of the work, resources and any work they need to submit.

Teachers will be available during the school day to respond to students’ questions and queries regarding their work.

Students will receive feedback on the work they submit. For core subjects, English, Maths and Science, students should receive feedback on at least one piece of work per week. In all other subjects students should receive feedback on at least one piece of work per fortnight.

Students should submit all of the work they are set by their teachers as submission and engagement with work is being closely monitored across the school.
