Our Remote Curriculum
Our remote teaching and learning package will commence from day 1 for any pupils or groups of pupils who are self-isolating.
We teach the same curriculum remotely as we do in school wherever possible and appropriate. However, at times some adaptations are required.
Remote Teaching and Study Time
We offer 3-4 hours of work for pupils in every year group.
Accessing Remote Education
We use Class Dojo, Tapestry, Purple Mash and Zoom for delivery and assessment.
How we support children do not have digital or online access
School will lend laptops to pupils who do not have access to the internet. Additionally, when requested, pupils are able to receive printed materials/resources and these will be marked on return to school.
How will my child be taught remotely?
Children will be taught by their class teacher and teaching assistant.
Engagement and Feedback
There is an expectation that all children engage in all lessons provided. Registers are taken daily for live lessons and a record of work handed in kept by class teachers and reviewed regularly. Disengagement with learning will result in contact from school to offer support and through working together closely with families agree learning for all.
Feedback is provided through regular communication with parents/carers regarding work submitted. Additionally individual feedback and tutoring is provided through either 1:1 zoom or phone calls or an offer of daily 'drop-in' sessions to support learning.
How will you check whether my child is engaging with their work and how will I be informed if there are concerns?
We will check a child's engagement on a daily basis and inform parents of any concern.
How will we assess children's work and progress?
Through 'live' lessons, conversations with pupils on a small group or 1:1 basis and through work submitted pupils' progress will be formatively assessed. Further teaching and learning will address any misconceptions and gaps in knowledge.
How will you work with me to help my child who needs additional support from adults at home to access remote education?
We recognise that some pupils, for example some pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), may not be able to access remote education without support from adults at home. We acknowledge the difficulties this may place on families and will with parents and carers to support those pupils in a personalised way with daily contact from a named member of staff.
Remote education for self-isolating pupils
Where individual pupils need to self-isolate but the majority of their peer group remains in school, remote education will likely differ from the approach for whole groups. This is due to the challenges of teaching pupils both at home and in school. Printed materials are likely to be sent to pupils.
