School Recovery 2: Blended Learning in August 2020

Wednesday 17th June 2020

Following the release of Scottish Government guidelines the school has been working on plans for our return to school in August.  On Friday 12th June we shared a post on how we plan to comply with public health advice to secure a safe return to school.

In this post we will share our thinking around the practical measures we are taking to address what is the main purpose of the school;  learning and teaching.  Scottish Government advice is clear in that almost all students, across the country, should experience a programme that involves learning at school and learning at home (we have usually called this e-learning).  This mixture of in-school and at-home learning is called ‘Blended Learning’.

All of our Blended Learning plans must be, and are, compliant with public health advice.

Please note that everything outlined below is subject to change and dependent on Scottish Government guidance.

Our Key Features of Blended Learning at Lasswade factor in, because this is the current advice, 2 metre physical/social distancing restrictions.  The themes we are working on are highlighted below,

A series of practical measures for students will be put in place for August,  please note that the following measures are not an exhaustive list of every feature of our Blended Learning programme
