REMOTE LEARNING & STUDENT WELLBEING

REMOTE LEARNING

At Waterfront UTC we are committed to ensuring pupils have access to high quality lessons whilst encouraging independence, responsibility and ownership. All work for pupils is set, on a daily basis, via ClassCharts. ClassCharts activities may include using MathsWatch or MS Teams but most will include reading through lesson resources, watching pre-recorded videos made by our teachers and other professionals, and completing activities and projects. As well as students being able to email their class teachers for support at any time, teachers will be available for the start of every timetabled lesson via MS Teams to offer support and advice on the work set. Work set will be engaging and challenging for all.

There continues to be a variety of lessons that Waterfront UTC teachers have recorded, all available on our YouTube Channel - click here

All completed work MUST be returned via email to class teachers. Class teachers will then respond with individual feedback to tackle misunderstanding and to offer further challenge to activities.
