Work is expected to be submitted back to teachers, but there is no pressure to do this immediately. Individual teachers will make clear their expectations around submitting work when individual tasks are set.
Feedback will be given to the students on Microsoft Teams following our normal marking and feedback policy, which is that teachers will mark one piece of work a fortnight in depth and will feedback including actionable tasks that will allow students to make progress.
Teaching staff will be keeping a close eye on academic work and will be regularly assessing and reviewing pupils’ attainment and progress. This assessment will continue in line with our usual framework, taking into account both effort and attainment. Where there are specific concerns in any of these areas, our usual school approach will apply; subject teachers will address individual concerns, whilst form tutors will manage any broader issues.
Homework & Personal Study
During this unusual period of working we will not be setting formal homework but instead Optional Independent Tasks. These will be an extension to their lessons and if students choose to complete them they will be marked in accordance with our marking and feedback policy.
