Remote Learning

Welcome to our Remote Learning page.

In the current climate, where the risk of infection and transmission of Covid-19 remains in the community we are fully prepared to adapt our school curriculum so that where a class, group or a small number of pupils need to self-isolate, or local restrictions require pupils to remain in isolation, they can continue to learn from home.

In achieving this, our remote learning plans fall in line with expectations from the DfE (www.gov.uk/government/publications/actions-for-schools-during-the-coronavirus-outbreak/guidance-for-full-opening-schools#res) with regards to remote learning and additionally take into account the context of our school community giving consideration to the mental health and wellbeing of our children, families and staff.

Our contingency plans are dependent on numerous factors and there are innumerable possible scenarios to prepare for.  However, these contingency plans are based on four broad scenarios.  At any stage, should a class teacher or numerous staff be too unwell as a result of Covid related illness to provide remote learning, a reduced version of provision will be put in place.

For pupils with SEND, their teachers are best-placed to know how the pupil’s needs can be most effectively met to ensure they continue to make progress even if they are not able to be in school due to self-isolating.  We will work collaboratively with families, putting in place reasonable adjustments as necessary, so that pupils with SEND can successfully access remote education alongside their peers.

In all scenarios, the provision put in place will be similar across the school however, the content of teaching tasks and expectations on learning will be dependent upon the age of the children.

 

 Scenario

 

 Remote learning provision

 

 Scenario 1

 A child tests positive and has   been in school during the   infectious period meaning a   class/year ‘bubble’ is required t   to isolate for 14 days due to   close contact.

 

  • When providing remote learning, teachers are responsible for setting daily work, in line with the Remote Learning Policy.  This will include daily teaching of phonics/spelling, grammar, a writing task and maths activities in the morning and cover weekly teaching of foundation subjects. Children are expected to read daily.  Work will be available using the Teams facility for the class.  Links to online learning resources will be found on Teams. Daily activities will be available by 6pm the day before.
  • Activities that are set on Teams can be completed in the home learning books.  A picture should be taken and uploaded to Teams by 4pm so that the child may receive feedback on their learning.
  • There will be a daily morning virtual class group meeting on Teams to meet the class teacher (and other member of staff) and listen to instructions for the tasks provided that day and to share feedback from the day before. The session will be videoed by the member of staff.
  • Children will have access to teacher support during the day.  Teachers will be available between 9am - 3.15pm.
  • Provision will be made for those children who do not have remote access e.g. printed copies of the activities and they will receive a bi-weekly call from a member of staff.
  • Teachers will contact parents if they have any concerns. about work or if work is persistently not returned (2 days)
  • Teachers will inform the DSL immediately if any safeguarding issues arise.
  • Parents can contact the school via the office or the year group email address.

 

 Scenario 2

 The entire school is closed due   to national or local lockdown.

 

 Scenario 3

 A child is required to self-   isolate  having had contact   with an infected person or   living in a house with an   infected individual, where the   rest of the class/year ‘bubble’   remain in school.

 

  • Weekly learning tasks will be provided by the class teacher on Teams (these may take the form of a Powerpoint etc which is adapted as appropriate after feedback) in line with the school timetable and medium term planning objectives.
  • Links to online learning resources will be on Teams or emailed to the child via the year group email address.
  • Provision will be made for those children who do not have remote access e.g. printed copies of the activities.
  • Access to teacher support during the day through dedicated year group email address and opportunity to email in work for feedback or place on Teams.

 

Scenario 4

 A parent elects to keep their   child at home following   concerns over contact with an   infected person.  E.g. year 6   class is asked to isolate and a   child is kept at home in year 5.

 

 In line with DfE guidance, unless there is close contact (as defined   below), there is no need for children to isolate and they should return   to school as normal.  Absence of this kind will be noted as   unauthorised.  In this case, we are still aware of children’s learning and   in exceptional circumstances will provide individual work dependent   on situation.
