Cathays High School – Online Learning – Details for Parents and Pupils in Year 10, 11, 12 and 13 – November 4th, 5th, 6th

Details and Explanation for the Timetable

  • Online/live lessons are only for KS4 and 5 at this point. For Year 9, all work will be added to Google Classroom.
  • The timetable was amended for GCSE and AS/A Level groups to allow teachers to run online lessons on Microsoft Teams with students on their allocated days.
  • Students will have a maximum of 2 subjects a day to avoid them being overloaded with work.
  • An AM session runs for lessons 1-4 and a PM session runs for lessons 5 and 6. Lesson times are on the timetable below.
  • We are hoping that the increased opportunity for online lessons will increase student engagement with home learning during periods of self-isolation.
  • Students are expected to attend all online lessons that are offered to them provided they have the technology to do so.
  • The timetable for live lessons will be e-mailed to pupils and can be seen below.

Code of conduct

  • All pupils must complete their code of conduct Google Form before they are allowed access to online lessons.

Pupil Code of Conduct Form

  • All parents must complete their code of conduct Google Form before their children are allowed to access online live lessons.

How to access Microsoft Teams and online live lessons

 

Rules for online live lessons

  • Punctuality – pupils must be on time for their lessons. A pupil arriving late to lesson makes the teaching more complicated for the teacher. It disrupts the lesson and the learning of pupils that arrived on time. You must login at the times listed below.
  • To access online live lessons, you must have signed your Code of Conduct contract. Any pupil that fails to adhere to the code of conduct will mot be allowed to access live lessons.
  • Pupils must be dressed appropriately (no pyjamas) and at a table or desk. Pupils should not be sat in bed.
  • Microphones must be muted on arrival at the live lessons. This is so that the class is not disrupted with background noise.
  • Cameras should be off. If a teacher asks them to put their camera on, a plain background should be selected by pupils.
  • Teachers will disable chat on arrival. Pupils will be given the opportunity to ask questions as part of the lesson.
  • All lessons will be recorded by teachers. This is for safeguarding purposes.
  • In the contracts you and your child signed, you agreed that no photos or footage of the online learning would be taken or shared. Any breaches of our contract will result in pupils being banned from the Cathays High School live learning experience.
  • Pupils should be focussed solely on their online lesson. Pupils should not be accessing social media, using their mobile phone or doing anything else that means they are not focussed on the lesson.
  • No pets should appear on camera at any point during the lesson.
  • Any poor behaviour will be logged as a behaviour point on SIMS – which is something they are able to see on SIMS Student. We need to follow the same rules that we do when in school – Prepared, Respect and Pride.

Registration

  • Teachers will take the register at the beginning of every lesson. As agreed in the online contract, any absence from an online lesson needs to be communicated to the school in advance. Poor attendance will be followed up with phone calls to parents.

Preparing for an online lesson

  • To avoid laptops or tablets losing battery, pupils must have a charger. Pupils must also have a book, a pen, pencil, ruler and any other necessary equipment available.

Web Browser

  • For quick access, you can use the Student Homepage to easily access Cathays Google Classroom & Microsoft Teams.
