Remote learning

 

The Curriculum

We will provide an excellent standard of education for all pupils when they are learning at home.

We will teach the same curriculum remotely as we do in school wherever possible. We have needed to make adaptations to certain activities in some subjects but the learning remains the same. For example, in year 5 the children would make clay pots. In this instance, the activity will need to change but the learning objectives around sculpture remain the same. 

 

Remote Teaching and Learning

How will my child be taught remotely?

We will use a range of approaches to teach pupils remotely:

EYFS

  • live teaching through Zoom
  • pre-recorded videos made by teachers
  • commercially available websites
  • commercially available video clips 

KS1 & KS2

  • live teaching through Google Meets
  • pre-recorded videos made by teachers
  • Google Classroom: Google Slides, Google Forms, Google Docs, Jamboard
  • commercially available websites including Mathletics, PurpleMash, MyOn, Accelerated Reader
  • commercially available video clips 

How will my child access the remote learning?

EYFS: Parents will receive an email everyday outlining the timetable. It will also include all links needed to access the learning.

KS1& KS2: Parents will receive an email everyday outlining the timetable. The pupils will then access all of the learning via their Google Classroom.

How long can I expect work set by the school to take my child each day?

We expect that remote learning (including live teaching and independent work) will take pupils broadly the following number of hours each day:

EYFS and KS1: 3 hours

KS2: 4 hours

If my child does not have digital or online access at home, how will you support them to access remote learning?

Devices

If you do not have access to a laptop, desktop or ChromeBook at home, please contact your child’s class teacher via email. They will organise for one to be available for your child. 

Tablets are not compatible with our remote learning. If you only have a tablet, please contact your class teacher.

Internet

If you do not have access to the internet, please call the school and ask to organise a phone conversation with your child’s class teacher. We will support you with access through the community broadband project or a dongle. 

Engagement and Feedback

What are your expectations for my child’s engagement and the support that we as parents and carers should provide at home?

We expect pupils to complete all aspects of their remote learning, following the timetable that is shared by class teachers.

We ask parents to:

  • establish routines with their child/children
  • actively encourage your child to complete the online learning 
  • check that their child is completing the learning
  • speak to their child’s class teacher if they have any questions or concerns

How will you check whether my child is engaging with their work and how will I be informed if there are concerns?

The school will monitor attendance and engagement everyday by registering the children who attend live lessons and by monitoring the children’s work on Google Classroom.

You will receive a phone call from a member of the class team once a week. As part of this conversation, we will discuss engagement, how your child is getting on with their learning and discuss their wellbeing. This is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions.    

How will you assess my child’s work and progress?

Feedback is really important and can take many forms. Your child will receive feedback everyday in the following ways:

  • instant verbal feedback in live lessons
  • feedback as comments on your child’s work in Google Classroom
  • whole class feedback on Google Classroom
  • live quizzes
  • quizzes marked automatically via Google Forms 

Additional support for pupils with particular needs

How will you work with me to help my child who needs additional support from adults at home to access remote education?

We recognise that some pupils, for example some pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), may not be able to access remote education without support from adults at home. We acknowledge the difficulties this may place on families, and we will work with parents and carers to support those pupils in the following ways:

  • providing physical resources 
  • delivering online speech and language support
  • 1-1 and small group live sessions for children and their families to attend
  • sharing visual timetables 
  • remote bespoke training for parents and carers so they can support their children’s learning

In the event that children and families continue to experience difficulties in accessing remote education, please contact the SENCo who will discuss the availability of places onsite

Remote Learning: Self-isolating Pupils

Where individual pupils need to self-isolate but the majority of their peer group remains in school, how remote learning is provided will likely be similar to the approach for whole classes.
