REMOTE LEARNING

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’

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/remote-education-during-coronavirus-covid-19

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. Where funding can be accessed, remote devices (eg, laptops) and/or 4G connections will be sought, particularly for disadvantaged children.  Parents will be reminded to make the school aware of any barriers to accessing remote learning. Paper copies of work will still be available where possible.

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.

Home learning packs were made available to all students before we closed, we have uploaded key information to the class pages, and we are utilising the Tapestry (EYFS) and Seesaw apps to communicate with the children and provide them with tasks to complete.

EXAMPLE TIMETABLE

Below you will find an example timetable, however if you have made your own that works for you then feel free to contine with your own routine. Your day should include a balance of academic time, free time, include some exercise and mealtimes to feed your body and ensure your children are focussed on their learning.

We are also celebrating our home learning on this page with our home learning gallery, which you will find below.
