Hele's School A great place to learn. A great place to grow.

Microsoft Teams

  • Since the previous period of lockdown, all staff and students have received training on the use of Microsoft Teams. Over recent weeks students have been shown how to download MS Teams onto their home devices and where to find their work and how to attend live, remote lessons.

  • MS Teams will function as a virtual classroom and your child has a virtual classroom set up for every subject.

  • If you have any problems here are some helpful videos to cover the most frequently asked questions when accessing Teams. These can be found by clicking on the following links:

Provision

  • Remote learning will explicitly use the EEF remote learning structure and symbols to develop students’ self-regulation and provide familiarity: introduction, activate, explain, practise, reflect.

 

Feedback

  • Assessment and feedback will continue in line with departmental feedback policies (these can be found on our website) and will be primarily formative. This means that the main focus is to diagnose what students understand and do not understand, so that we can address misconceptions and adapt our planning. Research shows that quizzing is a highly-effective assessment strategy and enables students to check what they know already and what topics they need to review/revisit. This is a cornerstone of our provision.

  • Students will be expected to submit work via Microsoft Teams and this will enable teachers to give feedback, where appropriate.
