Harrytown Remote Learning  Following Government guidelines, school is closed to most pupils until further notice. We are still remaining open to care for a small number of children of key workers, and have a number of staff on site each day as a result.   Harrytown is committed to providing continuity of education to its students and will do so through a process of remote (online) education. We have a clear vision and approach for remote education and will endeavour to maintain awareness of any issues or barriers related to its effective delivery.  This information is intended to provide clarity and transparency to pupils and parents or carers about what to expect from remote education whilst pupils are unable to attend school due to the National Lockdown.This meets the expectations set out in the DfE guidance: Remote Education Support  Key Principles of Remote Learning at Harrytown Catholic High School:  All pupils will have access to a high-quality provision of a planned sequenced curriculum, which is aligned as close as possible to the in-school curriculum. All remote learning provision, including homework, will be provided via the Microsoft Teams platform. Pupils will receive a synchronous experience, where there will be ‘live lessons’, allowing for pupil/teacher interaction, direction and support. We acknowledge that different approaches to remote learning bring different benefits and drawbacks. Live lessons also allow opportunities to ask questions which promotes progress and helps students feel connected to their peers, however, we appreciate the impact of ‘screen fatigue’ from extended online sessions. It is important that our teachers select the delivery approach which most suits the content they plan to cover. Microsoft Teams will be used share resources and, where necessary, direct students to other relevant platforms, e.g., Mathswatch, Seneca, Oak Academy, BBC Learning We will set work that is of equivalent length to the core teaching pupils would receive in school in an appropriate range of subjects. Lesson routines will continue. Students should access the Microsoft Team at the time they would have been attending lessons in school. Lessons will be 50 minutes, allowing for a 10-minute screen time break before the next lesson starts. Work is expected to be routinely submitted for marking and feedback using method as direct by staff. Registers will be taken during lessons and parents contacted where there is a pattern of non attendance.   All pupils at Harrytown Catholic High School have an Office 365 account administered by the school. This account gives pupils access to the full suite of MS Office applications. These can be used online or downloaded and installed on devices, please see the document below for instructions. In all cases pupils must use their @harrytownschool.org account to login to any application.  Work provided via the Microsoft Teams platform, will also be duplicated on Satchel:One. This will allow pupils who do not have full time access to devices, the chance to see work set during lessons at a time that is convenient to them.   

All work set for pupils will be done on this platform. This document shows pupils how to login to their account
