Remote Learning

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’.

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
