Remote Education Statement
Information for parents and carers
(updated September 2021)
All students are currently expected to attend school in person as normal, unless they are required to self-isolate or quarantine for Covid-19 reasons.
For students who are abroad, and facing challenges to return due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, we will provide wherever possible remote learning via Microsoft Teams for the period they are abroad.
Remote education for self-isolating pupils
Where individual pupils need to self-isolate but the majority of their peer group remains in school, we expect students to log into Microsoft Teams and join their lessons remotely, if they are well and able to do so.
If my child is not in school because they are self-isolating, how will their remote education differ from the approaches described above?
Teachers will invite self-isolating students to their live lessons in school via Microsoft Teams and they will include them in the same learning activities as students in the classroom as far as possible.

Instructions for using Microsoft Teams Assignments
If your child has access to online learning at home, they will need to log into Microsoft Office Teams Classes and go to every one of their virtual Classes to find work set in ‘Assignments’.
Students should login using their school computer username. This is in the form of first initial + surname + intake year @willowfield-school.co.uk, e.g. if I am a student and my name is James Francis and I joined the school in year 7 in 2018 my username would be JFrancis18@willowfield-school.co.uk .
Please find user guides to assist your child in logging into Microsoft Teams.
