Remote Learning

Where it is not possible for teaching and learning to take place face to face, TMHS is committed to safeguarding students’ access and entitlement to the full curriculum via remote learning.

All information relating to remote learning will be provided for parents via the MyEd application with remote learning for all students posted to Class Charts. We strongly encourage all parents to download both these applications and for all students to download the Class Charts application on their mobile phones and tablet devices.

As remote learning relies on access to internet and appropriate technology, we will routinely survey students’ access to these facilities, where a students does not have sufficient ICT access to support access to learning, alternative arrangements will be made so that students are not disadvantaged.

Self-Isolating Students

Where students are self-isolating, learning will be provided on Class Charts in a year group class E.g. ‘Year 7- Self-isolating Students’. In order to support their learning during the self-isolation period, students can maintain contact with teachers via the two-way messaging feature on Class Charts.

Collapsed Year Group Bubble

In the event that an entire year group is required to self-isolate, students will be expected to engage with the learning set in their year group class for the first two days of self-isolation, after which class teachers will issue learning according to the work setting cycles detailed below for each Key Stage. To access support for their learning, in addition to the two way messaging system, students in a collapsed year group will have TEAMs tutorials in their first timetabled subject lesson of the week, at present these tutorials remain optional for all year groups. The work setting cycles are intended to support students with managing their time when not in for face to face to face lessons.

Where a Sixth Form bubble is collapsed or a Sixth Form student is self-isolating, students will still access their normal timetabled lessons via Microsoft TEAMs and any remote learning set is to be submitted within the same week.

Circuit Break

Where a circuit break occurs students will be provided with remote learning in the same work setting cycles detailed below. However, in the event that no notice or insufficient notice is given, students will be expected to engage with the learning already published on Class Charts for self-isolating students for the first two days before the work setting cycle’ comes into effect.

Tier 2

This is where certain year groups are in school for two weeks of face to face teaching and then at home receiving remote learning for the next fortnight before returning to school for a fortnight of face teaching.

For the fortnight when a year group is not present in school, the final lesson in school will be used by teachers to inform students of the learning they are to engage in over the coming fortnight, including the provision of any relevant resources.

Remote learning will then be issued and submitted on Class Charts according to the work setting cycles below.

The work setting cycles are intended to support students with managing their time when not in school for face to face lessons. Where collapsed year group bubbles or other arrangements are in effect to support learning, in addition to the two-way messaging system on Class Charts, students will have TEAMs tutorials in their first timetabled subject lesson of the week, at present these tutorials remain optional for all year groups.

Microsoft TEAMS Tutorials

At present these are optional for year groups to seek additional support from subject staff. Tutorials will take place in the first timetabled subject lesson of each week and last for thirty minutes via Microsoft TEAMs. Students must log in using their Office 365 login details as recorded in their student planner.

The TEAMs protocols must be adhered throughout. Please see our TEAMs guide for students for further information on accessing TEAMs tutorials.
