Virtual School

Welcome to virtual school! This is your base to explore our exciting online learning during this period of lockdown. While this is a time of challenge, it is also one of many opportunities for pupils to develop as an independent and digitally skilled learner with the support of your teachers and our online lessons.

Your feedback on virtual school is important to us. Take a moment to complete the form at the foot of this page.

Virtual learning  

All virtual learning is accessed using Microsoft Teams and work is usually completed using One Note.  This enables teachers to see what each pupil is working on live, give feedback and allows your child to keep a record of all of their work.

One Note is most effective when used on a laptop. If this is a concern, please contact the school using the Form at the foot of this page. 

Timetables

Lessons follow your child’s timetable and each day starts with Learning Family Time or assembly. Friday is time for celebrating pupils’ achievements with the Head of Year in LFT.

Enrichment and Extra-Curricular Activities 

We will continue to deliver as full a programme of enrichments as possible through a mixture of live sessions and self-taught content. Students should follow their normal enrichment programme unless informed otherwise. We will also endeavour to provide some virtual music lessons.

Behaviour and Rewards  

Compass School Southwark has a clear behaviour policy, which seeks to ensure that the culture, ethos and atmosphere for learning is not compromised. The Virtual School Behaviour for Learning update works in addition to our behaviour policy.  The document outlines the following: 

  • Behaviour expectations during online learning 
  • How to get help from a teacher 
  • Communication etiquette 
  • Rewards and sanctions

During virtual school, pupils will be rewarded for both attending all their lessons and for good levels of engagement in their work.  Rewards include shoutouts in the celebration PowerPoint, contact home and possibility of winning vouchers. 

Keeping Children Safe 

We remain committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Find out more about our safeguarding by visiting our dedicated Safeguarding and Well-being webpage.
