If a child is unable to attend school due to illness we do not expect them to take part in remote learning. If your child is well enough, they can use the online apps and websites that the school provides for you to consolidate learning:
Reading Eggs, Numbots, Times Table Rock Stars, Edshed, Duolingo, typing.com, Scratch Jr, Classroom Secrets.
If a child is required to self-isolate due to specific illnesses (eg Covid-19) or as a result of the school being unable to open due to snow, power outage etc, class teachers will detail what learning is required to be completed remotely.
All children in Key Stages 1 and 2 have Google Classroom log-ins. These are already used regularly for homework, and other work in school, so children and parents are familiar with it. Work will be uploaded daily and will need to be turned in each day. Staff will endeavour to access comments during the day, however if they are also teaching in class this is not always possible. Any questions will be responded to by the next morning. Children will be given lessons for each subject that is also being taught in school. Some of these may be adapted to be more appropriate to the remote-learning environment. It is expected that the majority of KS2 children will be able to access and respond to their learning independently. It is anticipated that KS1 children will need the support of their parents/carers to access the learning. Where possible, staff will endeavour to include some live lessons, where children are linked into the classroom. However, this will not be for every lesson.
All parents of Early Years children have Tapestry log-ins. Work will be set for EY children to complete using this system. It is expected that Reception children will complete all the activities set, and it is hoped that the majority of activities given to nursery children will be completed.
Any family who is in need of additional resources - Chromebook, ipad, books, pencils etc - should let their class teacher know, who will arrange for a pack to be available for collection, or delivery, as required.
Children who do not seem to be engaging in remote learning will be highlighted to the head teacher, who will speak to the families concerned to try and establish what the difficulty is.
