Covid-19 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 even 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’ which you can access here.

 

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 will still be available.  When we locked down in March, '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.

 

What you can expect from us:

For children in years R, 1 and 2

  • A daily phonics lesson that will be delivered by Teams every day.  (Lesson will be approximately 1 hour)
  • Maths homework books (bought by the school) to be sent home with every child with the teacher directing a page to do each day.  There will be a learning instructions included for each task.
  • 5 comprehension activities to be sent home each week
  • Class pages will be updated to let children and parents know what the expectations are for that day. 
  • Children to keep practising their 'top ten' using the Gordons to support them
  • Purple mash activities will be set and feedback will be given to children via that platform. 
  • The class teacher will phone every child once a week to check they are OK, to ask after their welfare and wellbeing and to help with any issues they might be having with their learning.

For children in years 3,4,5,6
