On the first day of home learning, your teacher will be in touch to agree plans to gain access to the live Microsoft Teams platform asap. In the case of any technical issues or difficulties, they will provide alternative work by email or organise printed packs to be sent home short term while these issues are resolved..
This will include work to complete for maths and English plus links to online resources for the wider curriculum. The vast majority of children should be able to engage with live teaching from their first day of absence.
We teach the same curriculum remotely as we do in school wherever possible and appropriate. However, we have needed to make the following adaptations:
We expect that remote education provision (including remote teaching and independent work) will take pupils broadly the following number of hours each day:
Nursery, Reception & Year 1 = Up to 3 hours
Year 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 = 3-6 hours
We use Microsoft Office 365 and Microsoft Teams to support online learning. Your child has their own Office 365 account for emails.
Learning from Home Resources
Your child has been shown how to use a Chromebook (if loaned) and how to access Teams.
You will have received information to help you support your child with this. If you have any questions then please call our office and they will signpost you to additional support - 01202 727910.
We use a combination of the following approaches to deliver remote education:
For year 1 -6
For Nursery and Reception:
We recognise that some pupils may not have suitable online access at home. We take the following approaches to support those pupils to access remote education:
Feedback can take many forms and may not always mean extensive written comments for individual children; for example, whole-class feedback or quizzes marked automatically via digital platforms are also valid and effective methods, amongst many others. Our approach to feeding back on pupil work is as follows:
We recognise that some pupils, for example some pupils with SEND, may not be able to access remote education without support from adults at home. We will work with parents and carers to support those pupils in the following ways:
If your child is not in school because they are self-isolating, we will follow the same approach as above.
Thank you for your support at this challenging time. We are immensely proud of the response of our school community to these unique circumstances.
