Contingency Planning

Contingency planning

In the event of class, group, or small number of students needing to self-isolate, or if there is a local lockdown requiring students to remain at home, we will continue to offer a full curriculum to our students.

Work will be accessed remotely via one or more the following methods:

a) Microsoft Teams

b) Students’ school email accounts

c) The school’s website (https://www.georgegreens.com/Students/Self-Isolation-Resources/)

d) Where IT access is an issue and the school has not been able to provide equipment, through printed work packs

All students will have access to printed resources, textbooks and revision guides to use from home where these are used as part of normal teaching.

Whilst students are absent, they will continue to follow a broad curriculum that mirrors the work they would have done in school were they able to attend. Most students will access their lessons and resources using Teams. For the majority, this will mean simply attending their lessons remotely at the same time as it is on the timetable.

If this is not possible, the work will be set for students by saving resources onto Teams or sending it via email.

Where individuals or small groups of students are self-isolating, they will have regular ‘live’ tutorial support with a designated member of staff. The purpose of these tutorials will be to find out if there are issues accessing work, to act as a contact point between teachers and the student and to monitor engagement and work effort.

Completed students’ work will be submitted to teachers via Teams or email.

The following scenarios have been used to help inform planning:

Scenario 1- individual student is self-isolating

  • Student attends lessons at timetabled times via Teams
  • Member of staff makes regular contact to check if there are issues accessing the work and to monitor work effort
  • If issues with accessing IT, equipment will be provided by the school where this is available
  • Printed resources will be provided where this is necessary

Scenario 2 – large groups of students are self-isolating (e.g. whole year groups) or are unable to attend for another reason (e.g. exceptional levels of staff absence)

  • Lessons are taught as per the timetable to all students via Teams
  • If issues with accessing IT, equipment will be provided by the school where this is available
  • Printed resources will be provided where this is necessary
  • Year Leader will monitor attendance and make contact with families where this is appropriate

Scenario 3 – the school is closed for a longer period of time to large numbers of students due to local lockdown arrangements (e.g. two weeks in school, 2 weeks off school)

  • As per scenario 2
  • Students who have been identified as vulnerable attend as normal and are taught via Teams
  • Children of key workers attend as normal and are taught via Teams
