Pupil Free Days and Remote Learning What's the Difference?
Learning on Pupil Free days are, and have been at the discretion of families. That is, your child continues learning if your wish that they do so. This is similarly the case when families take extended holidays outside of normal calendar school holidays.
In remote learning, learners are expected to participate and engage with the learning being provided by their teachers. Work completed and a student's level of interaction with remote learning will be assessed and therefore go towards the production of 'End of Semester Reports'.
In term 2 students will be engaging in online learning. While this is something all schools are having to move to given the current situation with the Covid-19 Pandemic, we are also looking at this way of learning as a way of raising the information technology skills of ourselves and our learners.
We will continue to update this page with useful suggestions and resources to assist families in supporting their children at home.
How Will My Child Learn?
As a learner at St Patrick's, your child already has access to 'Office 365'. This is a platform that allows your child access to many other applications. Our teachers have been busy planning in the 'Teams' application. Learning in this way will begin from the beginning of term 1.
