What do we expect from learners?

We expect learners to attend lessons in line with their timetable, remotely and complete their assessments.

We expect learners to understand that they need to participate in lessons, not just attend them.

We expect learners to ask questions and be fully invested in the remote learning.

We expect each assessment to be completed to a high standard and submitted onto the Google Classroom in the knowledge that it will help inform us of their final GCSE grades.

If learners are struggling with the learning set, they must inform their teacher via Google Classroom.

We expect learners to keep engaged with us.

What do we ask from parents/carers?

We ask that you maintain healthy routines with your child which enable them to continue learning effectively, in line with their normal timetable (i.e sensible sleep patterns, a healthy diet).

We ask for your continued support. We will always ensure our learners get the best possible opportunity to achieve and reach their goals.

We ask you to continue in playing an active role with the learning of your child. Ask them what they’ve done today?, what was hard?, what was fun?

Hold your child to account for their engagement with remote learning.

What do the different terms mean?


Remote Learning - is the learning that you are carrying out at home, inline with your curriculum.
Live Learning - is where your teacher conducts the lesson (or parts of it) live via a link sent on the Classroom.
Blended Learning - is how we make sure you have a variety of ways to learn with your remote learning. This could be through lectures, assignments set, live lessons, loom videos and quizzes.

FAQ

Do I need to attend every lesson and complete every piece of assessment?
In short, it’s incredibly important that you attend, participate, engage with and complete each assessment set by your teachers.

What happens if I don’t attend?
School will be in touch with parents/carers and explain the importance of remote attendance and the damage that non-attendance/engagement can have to future life choices. Parents/carers are also sent a summary report of your engagement - so they know how much you are engaging.

What happens if I don’t have the resources or ICT to complete my learning effectively?
We need to know what the issue is so that we can help you try and provide you with what you need. Call school or email remotelearning@mmhs.co.uk to let us know there is an issue and we’ll get back to you.
