DC is in Y9 and in his school the Y10s did one meeting and that was it. Is it only just a few going back?

Depends on the school - most of our yr10's are back, part time. Yr12's declined the offer.

Government said only 25% on site at any one time. Schools had previously planned for more and earlier but hey ho.

Our state school is currently teaching part-time to y10 and y12.

My y12 is getting 6 hours a week in school right now. (2 half days) and some online lessons.

Y7/8/9 are getting 1 hour of online lessons twice a week.

It definitely won't be all schools but my kids school is in an academy trust and the other 2 schools are offering the same.

My year 10 is back very part time only 3 hours per week.

My Year 10 is back for 4 hours once a week

My year 10 had 3 days in last week, 3 days next week and that's it.

Dd yr12, in school 2hrs this week and 6hrs next week.

My year 10 went back for a Social last Friday afternoon and that’s all
She’s had a full online interactive timetable and even exams though

Movinghouse2015 Tue 30-Jun-20 21:52:06

My year 12 back, 3hrs per week. The rest is online.

My yr 12 is back for six two-hour lessons over four weeks. About 90% of thecyearvis back in apparently.

Yr 10 are also back, I presume with a similar timetable.

I guess it varies, but what ds2's school is doing is surely manageable for any school. Basically they have one subject a morning, or if it's not maths/biology/business/psychology then they gave multiple groups in (eg PE /French/drama/DT all on the same morning.

Yr12 isn't back this school year, other than 50 (out of 1,250 year group) supported study places.
It's a sixth form college so yr12 is half of the school, and a large majority travel in on public transport.

Y10s split into three bubbles and each one in for one day a week, full online lessons the rest of the time. Y12s in one day a week too. R to Y8 are fully back (not sure what's happened to Y9, but they get online lessons). The queue to get in the morning is getting longer as all need temp checks and wash their hands before entering.

My DD year is only back with a total of only 3 hours in total per week. In addition to this she is lucky if she has an additional 1 hour a week in total per week online/virtual on TEAMS and this has only been in place for the last two weeks. She certainly doesn’t have a full timetable all week. She gets bombarded with school work with emailed power points and emailed homework (she is so fed up). The teachers are not consistent, they are all using different platforms its so disorganised.

My yr 12 was offered one half day this term - a 30 minute 121 with someone who was probably not one of her subject teachers, an hours "circle time" to discuss experiences of online learning and an hours PE lesson. Not worth going in for TBH

My DS Yr10 is back three days per week (independent school) and has full online lessons the other two days. My DD is Yr9 and in a state school, has very little work set from school, a few video lessons but not live / interactive. Yr10s in her school are back 1/2 day per week to ask questions of teachers but no actual regular lessons.

I totally realise that the provision differs vastly across both sectors from school to school but in this house the difference is stark and shocking!

All Year 10's at DS's school were invited back.
Not all of them accepted. It's massively under-subscribed (because it has rubbish GCSE results) so DS has 2 days in school. 09.00-14.30.

Only 25% in at any one time. Funnily enough, those that didn't engage with the online learning have only been given one day a week in school.

WhatHaveIFound Wed 01-Jul-20 15:04:53

My Y10 DS will have two short days in school before the summer and it's not a full year group, only 20 kids in. Apparently the Y12s have only been offered one day in school. Full online lessons though.

ScruffyMummy Wed 01-Jul-20 23:34:25

My year 10 son at a state school is in the equivalent of two school days a week (sometimes it's 4 mornings, sometimes two days). He has also been given access to an online tutor for maths for one hour as week till the end of the summer via My Tutor- the school is paying for tutors for kids will specific learning needs and it's brill! The school is good - it was a new school so his year was the first cohort and therefore slightly less students in that year than average - 120 as opposed to 240. So that makes it easier for the school I guess? Anyway, it's a relief that he is getting some time in school with teachers and he likes his online tutor which is good.

In our school, all y10s and 12s were invited back for a series of 2-hour teaching sessions. Around 70% of y10s and 60% of 12s accepted the invitation.

Completely closed for offer good online learning

SE13Mummy Thu 02-Jul-20 08:55:44

DD1's school has prioritised the Y10s who didn't engage with the online learning so she's still having a mixture of live and and not-live online lessons. Every student in the school is having a short 1:1 review meeting at school. Other local secondaries are doing all sorts of different things with their Y10s including 1 day per week, core subjects only or 2 mornings per week to cover all subjects.

loobylou44 Thu 02-Jul-20 15:50:35

My year 10 DD is in for full days for the next 2 weeks and then an extra week at the end of the summer holidays.

80% take up of year 10 at our school.
