Should your child need to access learning from home, our remote learning offer is very much aligned to the learning that is being offered in school, in terms of the key objectives that are being covered.
How we will achieve the government’s remote learning expectations
- Online learning will be provided through the Google Classroom platform with teachers (Tapestry for EYFS) using and uploading the Remote Learning Planner for ease and consistency.
- This allows teachers to upload their own resources and provide feedback to students.
- Planned lessons will have clearly defined learning objectives which relate to the curriculum and enable students to continue learning, with an enhanced emphasis upon the core subjects of English and maths.
- Students’ work will be based on a range of resources, which may include online content such as videos created by teachers, links to Oak National, BBC Bite Size or activities which can be completed away from the screen.
- Learning activities will be accessible to all students and should provide a degree of challenge.
- Regular opportunities for assessment will be planned. This may include self-assessment, responsive feedback to students collectively and/or individual feedback to students.
- All students are expected to take part in online learning unless they are unwell or are attending school as part of the provision for vulnerable learners and the children of critical workers should this provision be reinstated.
- Where students are not engaging, we will make contact with parents to discuss what the barriers to learning are and provide support to overcome these where possible.
- Students and families who normally receive additional support from the school will receive personal phone calls or video calls to see how things are going.
- If longer periods of remote learning are needed, some live sessions will be included to enable interaction with teachers and support staff through Google Meet.
We have put together the following guides to support parents and carers with their child’s remote learning
