Home Learning

In September 2020 our school fully re-opened to all pupils since the partial closure in March due to Covid-19.  Whilst the pandemic remains a threat, there may be occasions where individual staff and pupils or whole classes are required to isolate for a period of time.  To ensure our children are able to continue to learn and receive the curriculum provision they are entitled to we have developed a remote learning policy and action plan.

All learning now takes place online through the provision of links to recorded lessons and activities for individuals who are in isolation.  Where whole classes are required to isolate, daily recorded and live teaching sessions are delivered by the class teacher as well as links to additional activities.  Paper packs will be made available to families without access to a device or the internet until a wireless router/SIM card and/or device can be allocated.

A whole school live learning timetable ensures parents and children can plan their learning throughout the day.  Unfortunately some clashes may be unavoidable, therefore links to sways with recorded videos and resources will also be provided to ensure that siblings sharing a device are able to access their learning at an earlier/later time in the day.  Staff will provide feedback to work using the method in which it was submitted ie Class Dojo/MS Teams.  Teachers will also address common misconceptions at the beginning of the following live session.  All pupils are strongly encouraged to engage with these sessions so that their learning is as uninterrupted as possible and they remain visible to their teachers.  Where children cannot access live sessions, parents should remain in contact with their child's class teacher via Class Dojo.  Safe and well calls will be made where teachers have been unable to engage with their pupils.
