Post 16 Home Learning Package
In light of the government measures in place in response to Covid-19, the Inclusion Hampshire team have developed a bespoke home learning package for each of our learners.
This package of measures may evolve over the coming weeks and we will keep you updated on any changes.
Beginning from Monday 23 March 2020, our Virtual School package will include:
- Access to Seneca Learning, an online learning platform, for all year groups
- A bespoke selection of printed learning resources (posted Thursday 19 March)
- 1-1 tutor support by email
- A weekly phone call or email from a member of our team
- Further support from our Pastoral or Therapeutic team if needed
Marie GreenhaIgh, our Head of Post 16 Education, has been in contact with parents and learners about setting up online access to Seneca Learning, an online learning platform. Many of our learners have already signed up and are completing tutor-set assignments already. If you have not yet confirmed the best email address to use please could you do this as soon as possible.
Seneca Learning can be accessed by laptop/computer or phone.
Tutors will be setting assignments which learners will see when they log in and it is important to balance their time between English and Math. Students and tutors will be able to see how they are progressing.
Bespoke Home Learning Package
Over the past few days, tutors have sent out worksheet based work to all learners.
There are some who find it more difficult to access online learning or do not have access to laptops/computers. The work provided here will be extremely important to these learners to ensure they are still able to continue their education.
If you require more worksheets, please email Marie (contact below) and she will send some via email attachment.
It is important that learners maintain the structure they would normally have been provided by their timetable to ensure continuity and familiarity. However, we do acknowledge that this is not always possible. Marie will be available throughout the day (10am-4pm) should a learner need help with work.
Pastoral & Therapeutic Support
Many of you will have already received a phone call or email from us. This will continue throughout this period.
Some of this will take place during a learner’s timetabled session. For example, if they were due to see James on a Friday between 10am-11am, they should expect a phone call during this time. Please be aware that these phone calls will appear as “caller unknown” (or similar).
We are aware that online learning is not the ideal situation for some of our learners. Nevertheless, it is important to maintain contact with our team to ensure that this period of disruption does not adversely affect each learner’s progress they have made during their time at Inclusion Hampshire.
We will be reviewing our Virtual School package regularly to see what is most effective for our learners. We would appreciate feedback from learners and yourselves to help us provide the best support we can.
We thank you for your support during this uncertain and challenging time.
The team will keep in regular contact with you all but please do not hesitate to contact Marie on firstname.lastname@example.org with any comments, concerns or queries.
