Remote Learning at CAW
In the event of a school closure, City Academy Whitehawk is committed to providing continuity of education to our pupils and will do so through the process of remote education. While our remote education will have a strong emphasis on online teaching, it is likely that other activities, strategies and techniques will be used to enable a range of experiences for our children and in recognition of the fact that accessibility to technology may differ from one family to another. The quality of online teaching will mirror the high standard expected in CAW classrooms and our ‘Ten Day Paper Pack’ will reflect the coverage and quality of all taught sessions.
Our Remote Education Curriculum
City Academy Whitehawk ensures that our children are in receipt of the following learning each day, in line with DfE guidance, through the following approach: Since April, we have been providing live lessons, our chosen platform, Electa Live. We are grateful to The Gatwick School (Aurora Academies Trust) for their help in setting up our online provision.
Should we need to revert to online teaching in the academic year 2020-21, we have enrolled all children in our online school and will be ready to teach an adapted curriculum from Day 1 of any closure. Electa Live Virtual Classroom Software is a professional live virtual classroom and a real-time online collaboration environment designed for teaching and training over the Internet. It is an integral part of Electa LMS which can be used along with it or separately as a live online training tool. With Electa Live 4 Virtual Classroom you can arrange live online classes and lectures, online meetings, group sessions, individual one–on–one sessions and webinars – all taking place over the web. For your live online meetings, you only need a computer with an internet connection.
