Conduct and Guidance
Live Lesson Guidance
Safeguarding Live Lessons
- Students should, if possible, be in a private place with as few interruptions as possible.
- Students should have their camera turned off and their microphone turned on but should behave exactly as they would in a normal lesson.
- The live class may be recorded so that if any issues arise, the video can be reviewed.
- Language and behaviour must be appropriate, including that of any family members in the background.
- Written transcripts, via chat for example, during the lesson may be kept for 30 days.
- The online lesson will be scanned by the schools internet safety software for any inappropriate language.
- Students will not be able to share their screens unless requested by the teacher.
- The individual chat function will be disabled.
- Any messages sent and received will be kept in the school’s audit logs.
- Staff and students must not remain in the virtual classroom 1 to 1 at the end of the lesson.
- Leaders will periodically visit lessons to ensure content is appropriate, offer praise and recognise good work.
- If a student has any concerns about the online lessons, they should report them immediately to their Head of House or Tutor.
Online conduct and appropriate behaviour
Remember that this is a normal lesson with your subject teacher. Lessons maybe recorded for safeguarding purposes.
We have the same high expectations of behaviour and conduct that we would have if you were in the classroom.
Failure to adhere to these expectations will result in a referral to your Head of House and further sanctions may apply.
