While schools are hard at work preparing for a return in September, many are creating back-up plans that would allow them to run dual schools – one for pupils in their buildings, and one for pupils learning at home. These plans include a need for remote teaching and would be used if there are local lockdowns, a need for classes on rotas or staff and pupil absences due to illness and shielding.
With the uncertainty ahead, we’re hoping for the best but planning for the worst. So we’re keeping Oak National Academy open for all of 2020/21 as a free, optional, resource for any school that wants to use it to help no lessons be missed.
Across July we will be hosting a series of webinars for school leaders and teachers to learn more about how to use our lessons and resources.
Please follow the links below to register for the webinar most appropriate for you:
This page provides documents and videos you can download if you want to implement Oak as part of your remote teaching plans.
Below you can download the full pack, or download individual items. If you would like to download an individual file, once you have opened the document, click ‘file’ and then ‘download’.
There’s no obligation, we simply hope this is a useful, free resource. To help you plan, you can access our full curriculum for the academic year 2019/20 online. We will release our full, year-long curriculum plan for 2020/21 at the start of July, and the majority of the year’s lessons will be released by September.
We’d love to keep you informed about new lessons and resources. If you’d like to hear from us, please sign up.
