Remote and Flexible Learning – Information for Families
Remote and flexible learning at BSE
Where to find my learning materials
• Your teachers have developed learning materials that can be accessed from home
• Resources can be found by logging onto BSE Virtual messages and you will find your class teachers have sent you the work for the week in a document.
How to access other online information
• In some subjects, students may be asked to access learning materials from online resources, beyond the BSE Virtual portal. These may include Stile, Math Pathways, Youtube, Google. Please ensure you have your login details for these resources to access at home.
• If you do not know your login, please email BSE IT email@example.com
How to complete my learning at home
• Your teacher/s will be available via BSE messaging to support you to do your work, and may have also created other ways that you can contact them.
• Try to work according to your normal BSE timetable if possible, so you know teachers will be available for assistance, if needed.
• As far as possible, ensure you work in a space that has good lighting, a supportive seat and minimal distractions (such as a mobile phone, TV, gaming console).
• Ensure you take regular, short breaks that involve movement out of your chair.
• Ensure you keep in regular communication with your teacher/s and submit any work they have asked you to do. In many cases, you will be expected to upload to BSE Virtual some work at the conclusion of the week.
• Contact your teacher/s via BSE messages if you are unsure about anything in your learning. Regular communication will be vital for authentication purposes.
• Use this as an opportunity to work ahead, not fall behind.
For more information on how BSE conducts remote learning, please read the Parent Information Sheet
Parents and carers who require their child to attend on-site school supervision will need to complete an on-site attendance application form prior to their child attending on-site and provide authorised worker permits signed by their employer.
BSE will continue to offer on-site supervision for students whose parents are authorised service providers and vulnerable students during regular school operating hours.
The On-site Attendance Application Form requires parents/carers to indicate the days or part-days that their child/ren need to attend school on-site. Form is available at the bottom of this page and is to be emailed to the school prior to your student attending
Our school will provide on-site supervision for students in the following categories:
Children where both parents and or carers are considered authorised workers who cannot work from home, work for an essential provider and where no other supervision arrangements can be made:
• where there are two parents/carers, both must be authorised workers, working outside the home in order for their children to be eligible for on-site provision. Authorised Workers permit must be provided
• for single parents/ carers, the authorised worker must be working outside the home in order for their children to be eligible for on-site provision. Authorised Workers permit must be provided
Children experiencing vulnerability, including:
• in out-of-home care
• deemed vulnerable by a government agency, funded family or family violence service, and assessed as requiring education and care outside the family home
• identified by a school or early childhood service as vulnerable, (including via referral from a government agency, or funded family or family violence service, homeless or youth justice service or mental health or other health service)
• where a parent/carer indicates that a student with a disability is vulnerable because they cannot learn from home, and/or informs the school the student is vulnerable due to family stress. This may apply to students enrolled in specialist schools and students with a disability enrolled in mainstream schools.
Please note the following points if your student will be on-site
• NO FORM – NO ATTENDANCE
• FACE COVERING MUST BE WORN AT ALL TIMES and must be provided by parents
• Students cannot simply arrive at school
• Students learning on-site will be supervised by an on-site teacher from 9.00 am – 3.16 pm and will follow the teaching and learning program provided by their class/subject teacher. They will be supervised only – no instruction will be given.
• Students are not to eat inside during class.
• Mobile Phone Policy applies at all times.
• At break times students will have access to the yard between H and E block and the soccer pitch. Students are not permitted inside unless it is raining.
• No Canteen available, bring your own lunch, snacks and water bottle (no access to water fountains).
• Wear sports uniform and bring all equipment needed for learning e.g. Laptop, headphones, workbooks etc.
• Hand sanitiser will be available at the entry points to the classrooms and physical distancing will be implemented along with restricted use of facilities so that we can maintain a safe environment for all on site.
• Physical activities and break time activities will be completed as an individual to limit contact.
• The learning program delivered on-site will be the same as the learning program delivered to students undertaking remote learning.
• Country Buses will be running a regular timetable.
