Top Tips for Successful and Safe Remote Learning at Home

Ensure that you know how to access your live lessons and any work set on Google Classroom.

Never share your passwords – your teachers do not need access to your password and will never ask you to share it. If the school need to access an account, they will always contact your parents/carers first. 

Never agree to talk to someone privately or in secret - your teachers will never ask you to do this. Your discussions with your teachers will be the same as they are in class.

Immediately tell your parents or your teacher if you are contacted by someone you don’t recognise. Teachers will always have official school accounts ending in @ousedale.org.uk and will never change their name suddenly. You should only contact staff on their official school email address.  Work where your parents can see what you are doing and talk to them about your Home Learning.

Make sure you are dressed appropriately and you have a suitable background.

Always communicate in positive ways during a lesson. Be polite, mindful of the feelings of others and courteous at all times. Normal school standards and expectations need to be followed. An on-line lesson is no different to a lesson in school. 

School behaviour sanctions and policy will still be used and if you disrupt a lesson, parents/ carers and your PAL will be contacted. You may also be asked to leave an on-line lesson if you cannot follow school behaviour expectations.

Never share usernames, passwords, videos, powerpoints or any lesson material, provided by your teachers or other students, on social media and never take and share screenshots.

You should not record or share with anyone else what happens in the online classroom. Your peers will be asking questions and your teacher will be posting advice and support. Everyone should feel confident in communicating without the concern of the content being shared outside of the classroom.

If anything feels wrong or different, speak to an adult immediately. Your form tutor and your teachers will be in regular contact to offer you any support necessary.

Lessons will follow your usual school timetable and the same timings of the school day.
