In September 2020, all our classes returned to full-time education following the Covid-19 closure in March. Although we hope that the majority of our children will now have an uninterrupted experience, there is the possibility that an individual child, a class bubble, or indeed the whole school, will need to self-isolate for a period of time. We have therefore put in place a plan for remote learning so that all children can continue with their education. This meets the expectations set out in the DfE guidance ‘Remote Education Support’
If a child does not have access to a computer/laptop and/or the internet, the school will do all it can to support children and will provide paper packs of learning. Parents will be reminded to make the school aware of any barriers to accessing remote learning. Paper copies will still be available.
When we locked down in April, Remote Learning was something for the future. The staff have worked tirelessly in ensuring that if your child is self-isolating or if the bubble bursts and the children are learning from home, that their learning continues.
Scenario A -
When individual children are self-isolating the school will use the pupil area (login details in reading records) of our website for remote learning.
On this page will be important information regarding remote learning during absence from school.
You will find here an overview of lessons to be completed each day. When you login, you will see specifically the curriculum expectations set by your class teacher.
It will provide learning across the curriculum and children will be expected to spend a similar amount of time completing this as they would spend learning in school.
Scenario B -
If a whole class is self-isolating, the school will use a combination of live teaching (providing the teacher is not unwell) using Microsoft Teams and the pupil login area of our website.
Scenario C –
If there is a whole school closure or national lockdown and schools are only open to vulnerable or key worker children, then school will continue to provide a mix of live teaching and curriculum content on Teams and our website.
