Home Learning

Home Learning update

The following tiered plan provides an outline of how we will deliver home learning to ensure our students make the best possible progress at Ercall Wood Academy. These tiers are in response to the different levels of isolation imposed by the local and national government.

Students who are self-isolating

When a student is self-isolating, parents and carers must ensure that the Attendance Officer is informed so that the correct code is associated with their reason for being absent from school.

Within Tier 1 Ercall Wood Academy will ensure that students have access to the core knowledge that will be taught in lessons through strategies including: 

Resources uploaded onto SMHW (Show My Home Work). 

Access to online learning tools, such as MyMaths, Oak Academy, Educake and GCSE Pod. 

Formative assessments through quizzes and self-assessment.

If a year group bubble is asked to self-isolate at home

If the school makes the decision to send a year group bubble home to self-isolate for 14 days, all students will receive their lessons in line with their usual timetable. The lessons will take place at the exact same time as if students were within the building to ensure that staff can continue to teach their other classes. 

Within Tier 1 Ercall Wood Academy will ensure that students have access to the core knowledge that will be taught in lessons through strategies including: 

Resources uploaded onto SMHW (Show My Home Work). 

Access to online learning tools, such as MyMaths, Oak Academy, Educake and GCSE Pod. 

Formative assessments through quizzes and self-assessment. 

Rota system of attendance

Tier 2 is when the government decide that we need to follow a rota system of attendance with some students in school and some learning from home. 

Within Tier 2 Ercall Wood Academy will ensure that students learning at home continue to make good progress in their learning through: 

- Lessons on SMHW. 

- PowerPoints with spoken explanations and instructions by EWA teachers and activities for students to complete. 

- Access to online learning tools, such as MyMaths, Oak Academy, Educake and GCSE Pod. 

- Formative assessments through quizzes and self-assessment.  

Whole school closure

Tiers 3 and 4 are when the government decide that the whole school must learn from home. 

Within Tier 3 and 4 Ercall Wood Academy will ensure that students learning at home continue to make good progress in their learning through: 

- Lessons on SMHW. 

- PowerPoints with spoken explanations and instructions by EWA teachers and activities for students to complete. 

- Access to online learning tools, such as MyMaths, Oak Academy, Educake and GCSE Pod. 

- Formative assessment and feedback through activities, quizzes and self-assessment. 

- A weekly Form Time on Teams to support students’ pastoral needs.
