Ivanhoe Remote Learning Portal

Thank you for visiting the Ivanhoe Online Remote Portal.  Here you will find details of how to access online learning for your child in the event of a medium to long term absence from school, due to illness or COVID-19 related reasons.  Your child will also have been taught how to use and access this in their lessons at school and with their tutor in form time.  Many of the resources here will be familiar to them. 

Please note there are NO current plans to fully or partially close schools.

We have listened carefully to the feedback you have given us and have used this to enhance our provision.  Through this platform, your child will have access to online learning materials that support our broad and balanced in-school curriculum.  It will be regularly updated to reflect current circumstances. In the event of school closures, we will also be offering some live tutorial support to help your child to structure their learning and we will send further detail on this as and when required.

In the event of school closures, please encourage your child to check their school emails regularly as teachers will send instructions and communication about school work directly to them.  You may still receive messages via MyEd containing whole school information, praise, or concerns we may have (if unable to resolve this with your child via email first).


How to access online learning

‚ÄčHow to access the Ivanhoe Remote Learning Portal

Your child will need to log into Moodle through the log in box on our website.  This will take them to their Moodle Dashboard.  The username and password are the same as the ones they use to log on at school. 

Once logged in, students will see the Remote Learning Portal banner which will take them to a list of subjects.  Clicking the relevant subject will give them a direct link to the work they should be doing.  This work will be updated regularly for those students learning at home. 

If your child needs help, they can find videos explaining how to access work, how to upload work, and how to email a teacher for help, by clicking this icon on their dashboard.  All of our teacher emails are available on our website click here.

How Long Should Your Child Be Spending on Each Subject?

The below table should give you a guide to how many hours per subjects per week. However, students should endeavor to finish tasks even if this goes a little over the recommended times. This will ensure that students complete all the learning required to progress in their subjects. If they are constantly struggling to finish tasks in the time allowed please contact the subject tutor or Head of Progress for their year.

How to be an independent learner.

There are things your child can do at home to help them get in to the right frame of mind for successful learning.

We have put together this video to refresh their memories of some of the things we recommend to help them to prepare.

Supporting Your Child's Learning.

Consistent routines are important for behaviour and wellbeing in school and our routines at home have changed significantly. Routines support behaviour and you will be finding a new rhythm with your family. The Education Endowment Foundation has put together this helpful checklist that you could share with your child. Talk to them to help them plan their new routines.  (click to open)


Additional Resources

Self Isolating

If your child is self isolating, and your child is not unwell, they should access the 'School Work for Self Isolation' This can be found on the website under the Curriculum menu or by clicking here. 

There are 2 weeks worth of work for each subject and each year group in these folders. You should be able to do all of the work on paper so shouldn't need a printer. If you do not have internet access please let the receptionist know when you phone to register as self isolating.

Additional Work

If your child completes all of their work, or would like to undertake additional work there are a range of suitable resources and lessons online at The Oak National Academy. Click here 


Downloading Microsoft 365 

We still have free copies of Microsoft Office available for students to use at home during their time at Ivanhoe college. 

The offer will enable the use of Microsoft Office on many devices such as laptops, tablets and Apple Macs.
