You Asked We Answered:
What is the College doing to minimise the risk from Covid-19?
It is important to recognise that we minimise not eliminate risk. We have students in bubbles, which work in zones to reduce the numbers of contacts. Bubbles are designed to allow students to work in situations where social distancing is not possible. The risk of infection is reduced by limiting the number of people that a person is exposed to. Students will work in a group in one room for the majority of their time. We have reduced or eliminated shared resources. Entrances, exits, break and lunch are staggered. Handwash stations, sanitisers, tissues and lidded bins are provided.
How long will the ‘Covid’ timetable go on for?
We do not have a fixed date, though it is likely to remain in place into 2021 假假地. This will be determined by the success of the efforts to control the virus at a national and global level.
Is my son/daughter getting a full curriculum?
We have created an interim timetable which allows students to study all their subjects. There have to be some changes in some subjects, especially practical ones.
What should I do if my child shows symptoms of Covid-19
Keep them at home. Organise for them to be tested (at a drive through for speed). Inform the College of the symptoms and then of the result of the test.
What happens if there is a diagnosed case of Covid-19 in the College?
We will work with Public Health England and follow their advice and recommendations. The response could be that one group of students is asked to self-isolate for 14 days. Staff have been asked to prepare work on Canvas which can be switched on at short notice should we have to revert to home learning.
What happens if there is a general rise in infection rates locally or nationally?
We will follow the expectations from the government. This might include partial or complete closure, with a return to remote working. Students could be asked to attend College on a 2 week rota.
Do students and staff have to wear masks?
At present there is no expectation for anyone to wear a mask in schools except where there is a high rate of infection locally. Ernest Bevin College’s stance at present is that people may wear a mask should they wish to. Should the guidance change then we will of course adapt our position, for example it could be that masks would be worn in communal areas. Any mask must be properly stored when not being worn.
What will the College day look like?
Students will arrive and sanitise or wash their hands. They will then walk to assembly or their teaching room for pastoral period. Students in years 7 自 11 will have 5 lessons in that room for 4 days of the week. Break and lunch are staggered and only one group will be in the playground or serving area at a time. On their activity day students will move around the College to Games, DT and Computing.
Why does my son appear to have changed tutor groups?
There has been a long term plan to move from organising tutor groups by ability towards a system of mixed ability groups with setting organised at subject level where appropriate. These mixed groups are planned to have an equal range of ability and need. This is the system which is operated in the majority of schools. Lessons are then taught in ability sets (where several tutor groups are blocked together) or in mixed ability groups. This process of change at Ernest Bevin has been ongoing since summer 2019 and has nothing to do with the pandemic. Students in the purple and green cohorts have started the College with this arrangement, though there have been some minor changes in the purple cohort.
The yellow tie and blue tie classes have been completely reorganised to create mixed ability groupings. The red ties were already in broadly mixed groups since changes were made last September. 年數 12 和 13 the tutor groups may reflect the courses taken or are mixed.
During the ‘Covid’ timetable students in years 7 自 9 are taught in their mixed ability tutor groups. Students in years 10 和 11 are in groups which reflect their options and will be mixed ability in the main. In years 12 和 13 the students are taught in the subject classes, which have entry requirements. Once we revert to our planned timetable setting will restart.
myed 仲係係家庭同學院之間聯繫的主要方式. 比以往任何時候都更加重要, 因為學院只有一個骨幹人員 – 所以電話一般得不到應答. 年度主管係直接發送消息嘅家庭, 並可以直接響應發送的消息. Parents can also contact school via collegeclosure@ernestbevin. 倫敦 which is monitored daily. 學生可以透過畫布向老師傳達佢哋嘅工作信息.
在關閉期間, 我哋向弱勢學生同關鍵工人的子女開放了學院. 這項規定貫穿復活節假期. 如果你認為你個仔符合此條件, 請聯系 email@example.com.
我們繼續為符合資格的學生提供免費餐吃. 呢個提議最初係由學院收集嘅. 優惠券而家直接發送到使用 wonde 的家庭. 假期期間維持免費膳食供應. 一個叫做 edenred 嘅國家系統將由星期一開始接管代金券嘅發放工作。 20 四月. 如果你個情況已經改變, 你認為你個仔而家可能有資格免費用餐, 請透過 firstname.lastname@example.org 聯繫.
我哋好幸運, 有使用帆布保持學生教育. 佢唔可以取代實際教學, 但它允許教師設置同接收工作, 保持與學生的對話, 並保持一定程度的參與學習, 將是非常困難的, 甚至 10 幾年前. 呢間大學處於陡峭的學習曲線上.
有一個好好嘅例子, 學生充分利用畫布. 年數 11 我哋有好多學生提交大量的工作, 證明佢哋整緊嘅進步. 將時間投入研究, 超越佢哋通常嘅科目範圍, 很好地適應困難的情況.
畫布可透過應用訪問 (帆布 – 開發人員係結構) 結合 word powerpoint 同應用, 允許由手机完成工作. 在筆記本電腦同 pc 訪問受限的家庭中非常有用.
對於所有學生來說, 顯然是一個非常困難的時刻, 遠離朋友, 大學同佢哋鍾意嘅活動. 我們繼續透過電話為學生提供支持. 我哋透過緊 myed 同電話聯繫家庭, 檢查健康. 如果你對學生的福祉或安全有任何疑問, 請向 email@example.com 發送消息.
喺呢個階段, 我哋冇跡象表明學院重新開放的日期. We are awaiting instruction from the government.
