Self-Isolation and Lockdown Information

1.   Self-Isolation while waiting for a COVID-19 test result

Individual students who self-isolate while waiting for a test result have to make use of online resources.  Topics can be studied by using BBC Bitesize online daily lessons or activities or using the Oak National Academy online lessons (https://www.thenational.academy/).

Information on topics for each subject, which can be accessed online during self-isolation, is given below under Topic Information for Self-Isolation Work.  The chosen topics reflect what students are currently studying in class and are updated regularly.

2.   If you are asked to Self-Isolate (either due to a positive COVID-19 test or have been told to do so by the school)

We aim to livestream as many lessons as possible.  Please click here for further information regarding virtual lessons.  Additionally, topics can be studied by using BBC Bitesize online daily lessons or activities or using the Oak National Academy online lessons (https://www.thenational.academy/).

Information on topics for each subject, which can be accessed online during self-isolation, is given below under Topic Information for Self-Isolation Work.  The chosen topics reflect what students are currently studying in class and are updated regularly.  Students should be following their normal timetable and complete activities for each subject.  They should keep their completed work and hand it to their subject teacher on return to school.

The student's tutor will make weekly contact, via email or phone.  The weekly contact might involve a brief catch up with parents first and then speaking to the student.

 3.   Isolation of an entire year group or complete lockdown

For Years 7, 8 and 9 the timetable will be changed in case of an entire year group or complete lockdown.  These three/four 60 minute lessons allow students to finish tasks set in their lessons and submit work to their teachers.

Years 10 and 11 will have five 50-minute live lessons a day as per their timetable with the exception of PE, E&P and PD for Year 10 and PE and Period 6 for Year 11.  Lessons will start at 8.30am and finish at 2.20pm.

The tutor will contact each student in their tutor group every two weeks.  The fortnightly contact might involve a brief catch up with parents first and then speaking to the student.

All work, including resources, is set on Google Classroom NOT on Insight. Students have been invited to join Google classrooms for each subject as part of home learning. One way to access Google Classroom is for the student to log onto their Cowplain Cloud email account and then click on the waffle (an icon consisting of 3x3 small dots in the top right hand side corner) and choose Google Classroom.
