Blended Learning Policy
The 2020 pandemic brought about new challenges for teaching and learning. The sudden need to adapt to distance learning allowed limited time for teachers to implement detailed procedures and fully develop their craft to move to a remote world. During this lockdown period, departments could set work either daily or weekly depending on their current circumstances. Departments could also set work using methods and platforms of their choice, although Microsoft Teams was encouraged. Weekly assessments and engagement trackers helped curriculum and pastoral teams support students through this difficult and challenging time.
The aim of this policy is to consider the practical implementation of blended learning across several eventualities in order to ensure that students, teachers, parents and other stakeholders are clear about expectations and responsibilities.
