Recent events have caused schools around the world to find changes in the way they work.


For many Frog schools, moving to a virtual school model of operation is nothing new. Frog works with schools around the world and our community has encountered closure through everything from natural disasters, to severe weather patterns and even social upheaval.

Business continuity planning means not just finding new ways to facilitate learning but finding ways to keep the whole school running. Here we are sharing some of the ways in which schools use Frog to carry on with business when the world closes down...

Online resources shared across alternative provision MAT
Apr 9, 2020, 8:15 AM

River Tees MAT is a group of alternative provision schools. All children that attend are classed as vulnerable and therefore still attending each school each day. As many of the teachers are working from home, the learning situation is slightly more unusual compared with other schools...

Guidance and resources

E-Learning lead, Matt Holley has created online guidance and resources to support everyone. A Covid19 site has been shared to all stakeholders via a Frog dashboard - which Matt keeps updated, it includes:

  • School documents
  • Amended timetables
  • Links to external support websites
  • Home learning guidance
  • Past papers for older students
  • CPD for teachers to achieve during lock-down


Centralised 

The schools struggled to keep printed staff handbooks updated with the ever-changing Government advice. so this content was also moved onto Frog, meaning it could be updated dynamically and sit with all other resources.

 

Benefits of approach

  • Staff can access everything from a single login 
  • Information is easily updated to keep up with demand
  • Approved links to external content included
  • Supports remote teaching and well-being

How one school helped structure the whole school day for students
Apr 1, 2020, 3:49 PM

School routine is important for both students and their parents, so how do you make a virtual school day work in reality?


One of our Frog Schools has gone beyond delivering transactional lessons remotely, they've transformed the whole school day! Assuming responsibility for their students from waking up to going to bed, in a bid to help them find structure in this new situation.

Using simple Frog tools, both students and parents have a routine to follow via simple timetabling of the school day, including breaks, just as they do within the school environment.

Here is an example of what they have created:

greenshaw schedule 2
