If it becomes not possible for students to attend face-to-face education this page is designed to give you support with learning at home.
1. UCC Home Learning - what to expect from teachers if school is closed
Work for each timetabled lesson will be set by 9am on each day on Satchel:One.
Some subjects may set longer pieces of work, for example projects, but this will be broken down into suggested chunks for each lesson.
Work is expected to be completed on the day it is set (although deadlines may be longer to allow for logistical / technological pressures).
Teachers will be giving feedback on at least one piece of work per subject per fortnight – this may take the form of instant feedback from quizzes and from at least one longer assessed piece of work.
Teachers will be awarding House Points for good effort and achievement through Satchel: One.
We have asked teachers not to set work that requires printing.
We have also asked teachers not to set ‘homework’ or work due at the weekend to allow families to have proper ‘down-time’.
2. Satchel: One
Here are a series of links to quick guides on various aspects of Satchel: One:
3. How to communicate with teachers
There are two main ways to communicate with teachers during this time:
Short questions relating to individual tasks on Satchel; One – students should use the comments function in Satchel: One: Leaving comments
Longer questions relating to work or more general questions from either students or parents – use e-mail.
4. Additional learning activities
The two platforms below also offer lessons linked to our subject areas which students can work through:
There is also a wealth of learning activities which our students can engage with beyond what their teachers set. These can be found in the enrichment area of our website: Enrichment activities
