Please find here a link to our Remote Learning Policy.
This policy clearly outlines what you can expect from the school in supporting you and your child in the case of:
Tier 1 - Individual self isolation.
Tier 2 - Individual Shielding
Tier 3 - Whole class isolation
Tier 4 - National Lockdown
In these circumstances we are mindful that households and their ability to deliver Remote Learning vary considerably through: work demands; siblings; wifi; devices etc so we have tried to provide some structured activities in Maths and English with some fairly open activities in PE,Music, Art and project based learning. All of the sessions are pre recorded to give parents the flexibility to fit them around their day.
In January 2021 the DfE set out clear requirements which are listed below:
Coronavirus: New guidance for online learning
[The guidance for the last national lockdown (Jan 2021)sets out the following expectations for remote learning in the case of whole class closures or whole school closures. ]
Schools and teachers are expected to:
- Set assignments so that pupils have meaningful and ambitious work each day in a number of different subjects.
- Primary schools should ensure pupils have three hours' work a day, on average, across the cohort.
- Secondary schools should ensure students have four hours' work a day, with more for those working towards formal qualifications this year.
- Provide frequent, clear explanations of new content, delivered by a teacher or through high-quality curriculum resources or videos.
- Have systems for checking, at least weekly, whether pupils are engaging with their work, and inform parents immediately where engagement is a concern.
- Gauge how well pupils are progressing through the curriculum using questions and other suitable tasks.
- Provide feedback, at least weekly, using “digitally facilitated or whole-class feedback where appropriate”.
- Enable teachers to adjust the pace or difficulty of what is being taught in response to questions or assessments, including, where necessary, revising material or simplifying explanations to ensure pupils’ understanding.
|Requirement||What we are doing as a school|
|Set an average of three hours work KS1 and four hours KS2.||
We will set three tasks a day: 1 English, 1 Maths and 1 other assignment. (PE, Music, Art, Topic - Project)
We will also provide:
1x class story a day
1x phonics task/activity a day
Additionally, pupils are also able to utilise: Reading Eggs and Mathletics.
Work in English and Maths will contain the opportunity to stretch and challenge by using Must, Should and Could elements.
|Provide frequent, clear explanations of new content, delivered by a teacher of through high quality curriculum resources/videos.||
Staff will provide at least 2x video introductions a day for pupils to start their English and Maths learning. Some of this will be pre recorded by the teacher and other sessions will be linked to high quality videos such as 'White Rose Maths'.
Additional content will be added to assist pupils' phonics understanding.
Support resources will also be provided.
Provide feedback, at least weekly, using “digitally facilitated or whole-class feedback where appropriate”.
SeeSaw enables the classteacher to provide instant feedback to pupils. Feedback will be provided to pupils on a daily basis.
General feedback may also be provided in the weekly social live catch up!
|Enable teachers to adjust the pace or difficulty of what is being taught in response to questions or assessments, including, where necessary, revising material or simplifying explanations to ensure pupils’ understanding.||Teachers will be planning and marking work on a daily basis. They will be able to clarify any misconceptions as well as ensure that clarification/adjustments are made to the learning for both pupils and parents to follow. These will be made through SeeSaw.|
Have systems for checking, at least weekly, whether pupils are engaging with their work, and inform parents immediately where engagement is a concern.
|Teachers will be able to see which children are engaging with Remote Learning through SeeSaw. Teachers will check in with all pupils and parents once a week via telephone to check how pupils and parents are doing and to assist with any technical/work related problems.|
