Learner Agreement

The role of a learner

Prior to the lesson 

In order to engage constructively with my online studies, I agree to: 

  • Prepare for the session in plenty of time and have an appropriate working area. 
  • Access the relevant files for each session in advance and have the materials to hand. 
  • Ensure my device and connection are suitable for online learning and inform the school, where it is not, in advance. 
  • Choose an appropriate quiet workspace (ideally a separate room) where other family members will not disturb me and explain to my family when I am starting a live session.  
  • Minimise distractions. Turn off music, tv, phone, games console in the background. 
  • Mute my microphone. 
  • Ensure that I use a background if my camera is going to be switched on during the lesson. 
  • Ensure I am dressed appropriately and treat the session as would in school. 

During the lesson 

In order to engage constructively with my online studies, I agree to: 

  • Not impact on the experience of the lesson for other pupils, showing respect for everyone in the online classroom. 
  • Contribute to the class in a positive manner and not be disruptive at any time. 
  • Only use my parents to support with the technology and not ask questions or speak for me during the session. 
  • Mute my microphone unless I need to ask a question or respond to the teacher 
  • Only comment or raise questions on the topic being discussed. 

Between lessons 

In order to engage constructively with my online studies, I agree to: 

  • Communicate effectively any difficulties I encounter with my classroom teacher via email or on Teams. 
  • Accept that teachers might not be able to answer immediately or out of normal school hours to any queries I may have.
