Lockdown & Remote Learning
Lockdown & Remote Learning: College Statement
Following the announcement yesterday by the Prime Minister of a new lockdown in England from Wednesday 6th January, David Game College can now confirm the following:
- Online learning will commence for all students from 11thof January; Zoom links will be organised and sent in the coming days to all students
- Online Zoom-based classes will occur as per the existing timetable
- Summer 2021 exams will be cancelled
Details surrounding the assessments for summer exams should become available over the coming weeks. In the interim, it is essential that students take their remote learning and any online tests/HWKs seriously, as tests and mocks will become key elements in how students’ grades will be worked out. Details on when mock examinations will occur will be sent out in the coming days. Testing for COVID at the College, as previously announced, will now not take place during the week of 11th and will be rescheduled when the College re-opens.
The College emergency COVID-19 Committee is meeting today to coordinate efforts to ensure full access for all students to our curriculum.
We understand this is a very difficult time, but the College is committed to providing as many of its normal functions online as possible. Details of personal tutor groups, UCAS advice, the medical programme, and additional support and extra-curricular activities will all be given to students and parents once arranged, including SEN and mental health support. Should you have any issues in connecting and accessing the curriculum remotely please let us know as quickly as possible.
