Remote learning is a provision we offer through Zoom and Google classroom, for those pupils who are unable to access a physical TRS school due to being immunosuppressed: having a reduced ability to fight infections and other diseases. This allows pupils to interact and socialise with others online, and progress academically. Pupils whose immunity improves can step up to one of the TRS schools where we have an online provision available for Key stage 1 through to Key stage 4.
Pupils in Key stage 1 and 2 will receive up to 4 hours of literacy and numeracy teaching per week and up to 2 hours of phonics support (KS1) or guided reading (KS2), 1 hour of social and communication support and 1 hour of mentoring per week as is required. Fridays are kept free for contact with the home school to allow the students to interact with their primary schools.
Pupils in Key stage 3 and 4 receive up to 4 hours of Maths, 4 hours of English, 3 hours of science and 2 hours of personal finance per week. They are also offered a 1:1 mentoring session if required.
Where appropriate the aim is to reintegrate pupils back to their home schools or their next educational provision. If a pupils health improves and a place becomes more appropriate then a transition to one of TRS schools will be supported.
