Covid-19

Remote learning/online lessons

Should your child be unable to attend school because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the school will continue to provide a remote teaching experience. 

Accessing the online learning

Our students can access their online learning platform via the ‘Student Portal’. To access the Student Portal, your child will need tovisit the ' Student Portal' and use their school provided e-mail address and password.

Your child's e-mail address is their username plus ‘@waverleystudiocollege.co.uk’. For example, if your child's username was 17ABCDEF, their e-mail address would be 17ABCDEF@waverleystudiocollege.co.uk.

If your child has forgotten their password, they can request a new one here. 

What will learning look like?

During the school day, your child can expect to receive lessons as they would do so on their timetable. These will be delivered via Teams. If your child is unsure of how to use Teams, they will find a guide on the Student Portal.

Lessons will be delivered via a pre-recorded or live video, after which your child will need to complete a task or an activity. They must submit that work, via Teams, within two working days. Your child will be able to ask their teacher questions. Instructions will be provided during the lesson.

Access to devices

We are aware that some families are sharing devices between children, and therefore learners may be unable to attend each lesson as it is prescribed by their timetable. All lesson content (including videos, resources, and assignments) will be left online for two working days, allowing your child to access the learning when a device is available. However, we strongly encourage your child to follow their normal school timetable as much as possible.

In order to access the remote learning, your child will need:

  • A digital device (computer, laptop, tablet, smartphone) capable of connecting to the internet and capable of providing sound.
  • A stable internet connection.

If you are using a tablet or a smartphone, your child may need to download the ‘Teams’ app. Further instructions are available via the website. If you are concerned that your child may not have these resources available, please contact the school by e-mailing enquiry@waverleystudiocollege.co.uk
