From Monday 30th November students who are self-isolating will be invited to take part in a trial, joining some school lessons remotely using Microsoft Teams. If this is successful we will be inviting more students who are self-isolating to join lessons in this way.
- At the start of the school day, students should check their Teams calendar to see if any lessons have been scheduled for that day, if you have the instructions below will remind you how to get onto Teams.
- When you join the lesson, you must make sure you have your video and audio switched off. Video must remain off at all times and audio should only be switched on if the teachers requests you to. Please be patient if there are delays in connecting. Your teacher will give you instructions as to your participation in the lesson and the point at which you may leave the lesson.
- Due to the technology students need to be aware that there are limitations to our audio and video capacity when streaming from a classroom.
- Students will need to have paper and stationery just like in a lesson in school and will follow the lesson as if in class. Students should bring this work into school when they return and put it with their books.
- Students and Parents/Carers must be aware of the following important safeguarding information:
- At the discretion of the member of staff this lesson may be recorded
- All use of Teams and associated technology is compliant with the school’s GDPR policy
- Students must not record video or audio during a live lesson. The ability to do this through Teams has been disabled.
- Any disruption to the lesson, whether or technical or otherwise, will result in the Teams session being ended.
