Protocols for online teaching from home

Parents should be aware of:

● What their children are being asked to do online during this period of remote learning.

● Installing appropriate filters on home devices.  

● How to report concerns to the school.

● Where to seek support to help them to keep their children safe online. The following websites offer support to parents and carers regarding e-safety:

Protocols for online teaching from home

Staff must:

  • Dress appropriately.
  • Check what is visible on-screen to the pupil, so that nothing inappropriately personal is visible (e.g. personal item, painting, poster)
  • Make sure that there is never a possibility of strangers having access to the screen
  • Set appropriate boundaries and behavioural expectations, and maintain the same professional standards as at school.
  • Correspond professionally in tone and content.
  • Continue to look out for signs a child may be at risk.  Any such concerns should be reported using My Concern and to the Designated Safeguarding Lead.
  • School staff should only contact parents during normal school hours, or at times agreed by the school leadership team

When interacting with parents regarding home learning staff should:

● Contact parents only through school email accounts, dojo or Microsoft teams. If a phone call is made from a personal mobile phone staff should withhold their number.  Other methods of contact such as private email or social media accounts should not be used under any circumstances.

 ● Never conduct lessons from a bedroom or a personal space.

● Conduct lessons in a quiet space, preferably against a neutral background, ensuring that friends and family are never visible during a lesson.
