Remote Learning

 

Remote learning with the GLA

During this uncertain time, we understand that some children may be away from school for periods of time due, due to  school closures, individual self-isolation or isolating within a class, year group or school. As such, we have created a GLA approach to managing these absences to ensure all children continue to receive a high quality education.

Our remote learning approach depends on the specific circumstances of the child and their absence. Details should be read in conjunction with the GLA Remote Learning Policy 

Remote learning will be managed through the Microsoft Teams platform. Each child has a personal Teams account and teachers have been arranging opportunities for pupils to navigate the learning platform, both in school and at home. We are continuing to create some simple guidance videos to help you access and move around the site - these be accessed using the menu on the right hand side

By allowing your child to partake in remote learning through the Microsoft Teams platform, you are agreeing to abide by the GLA Parents’ Acceptable Use Agreement.

If you have any questions regarding this agreement, please contact the main office of your child’s school, who will direct you to the relevant person.

 This Parents’ Agreement has been constructed alongside the GLA pupil’s Acceptable Use Agreement, which has been completed by all pupils in school 

We have created a Tier 1 to Tier 3 response, dependant on the situation, these are described below. Please be aware, these tiers do NOT link directly with the Government tiers but are dependent on the school situation.

Tier 1

This is when you child is needing to self-isolate due to displaying COVID-19 symptoms, a member of their household displaying symptoms or being advised to self-isolate by a relevant government body. For more information on Tier 1, click the link on the right hand menu.

Tier 2

 This is when you child is needing to self-isolate along with other members of their class, as instructed by the school. For more information on Tier 2, click the link on the right hand menu.

 Tier 3

 This is when you child is needing to self-isolate along with other members of their year group, Key Stage or school, as instructed by the school, or Local/National Government, or in the event of school closures. For more information on Tier 3, click the link on the right hand menu.
