Expectations for Online Learning

1.     Attend and be punctual. 

Using your timetable as a schedule for your week, ensure you are actively engaging with work that is set in each subject. Check which lessons are going to be live and complete your other lessons around these.  Spend approximately 60 minutes per lesson on completing work that is set.


2.     Present yourself well.

Online - be polite and courteous, showing respect for yourself and others as you would in a normal classroom environment. Remember our school rules: Be Kind, Be Ready, Be Safe.  An online classroom is a professional environment. Complete your work as if you were in school.


3.     Behave impeccably.

Do not post anything that is inappropriate or that you would not say in a normal classroom environment. Be respectful and contribute in a positive and productive manner.


4.     Follow instructions and rules.

Engage with resources positively and do your best to complete all work set. Follow instructions in the chat.


5.     Do not disrupt learning.

Complete the work posted online to the best of your ability. When you are online with your peers and teacher, stay on task and ask appropriate questions in line with the learning. Actively engage in the posting and online discussions in a polite and respectful way. Stay on task, don’t be disruptive to others and be productive and helpful. Ask questions in an appropriate way and remember your ‘please’ and ‘thank you’.


6.      Be kind and helpful to others.

If someone asks a question, try to help them. Be kind and respect of other people’s differences and opinions. We are all in this together and it is important to support and help each other. Be courteous and kind, not posting anything you wouldn’t say in our normal classroom.


7.     Always try your very best.

Engage in the work set and lessons that have been posted or uploaded. Attempt to complete as much of it as possible as you would do in class.


8.     Talk to your teachers.

If you notice anything when online that worries you please contact your teacher to report.
