St Patrick’s College will move to online classes from Tuesday 12th January. Monday will be used as a day to ensure our set up across all year groups is correct. All year groups will be following an amended school timetable.
For all year groups this will consist of ‘live’ classes. The classes will be delivered via Microsoft Teams App and will follow the structure of the daily timetable in school.
The afternoon time will be available for homework and study. Some teachers may use the afternoon for extra classes.
It is our intention to provide a very structured learning environment for the students and to replicate the classroom experience as best we can. Students will have all the links to their classes shared via Teams and joining a class will be easy. The roll will be taken in each class and parents will be able to view attendance in their son’s profile in VsWare.
School rules around timekeeping, disruption of class and submission of work will apply. Please be familiar with our mobile phone, recording and photographing policy in the school journal. I attach a document outlining good practice for the online engagement.
