Remote Learning for Spring - January/February 2021

In light of updated government guidance, we have had to amend our remote learning policy to meet the new criteria.

 

In the table below, we have set out the expectations for each year group. Your child is EXPECTED to follow the weekly learning plan and be able to evidence the work completed – please note that the learning is NOT OPTIONAL and must be completed as the government have made this quite clear. Daily live lessons, pre-recorded tutorials and daily online drop-ins will be available to support you and your child/ren. In addition to this, online collective worship will be available each week.

 

If you are a key worker whose child is in school some days and working from home others it is important they do the right work on given days so they will be able to build on it at home/in school.

 

 

Unfortunately, we are going to struggle with printing paper packs whilst all being in ‘bubbles’ in school; therefore, we encourage parents to access the resources, on screen where possible, and children can record the answers in their home learning books if they don't have the capacity to answer online. 

All children were given a home learning book, but if please let us know if your child requires another for this or is unable to access learning online.

 

 

We understand that learning at home is not ideal for you or your children and we appreciate how difficult this is for you. We are here to support in any way we can so please do utilise the materials provided, join us in the drop-ins and ask us as many questions as you need to in our phone calls.

Each week, a member of staff will contact you to check-in and discuss any support you may need; please note, this may be from a withheld number. It would also be pertinent to check your junk email regularly as emails from school may end up there.

 

All staff are contactable during working hours via ClassDojo and email – please allow reasonable time for a response during this period.

 

To support you with accessing the online learning, we will be sharing a series of pre-recorded videos where we will show you how to access and navigate our timetable links and learning platforms such as Showbie. These will be available by the end of the week and you can then email us any questions you may have.

 

Parents of Reception and Nursery pupils will have the opportunity to attend a remote learning meeting on Teams:

Nursery:       3.30 - Thurs 7th Jan

                       11.00 - Fri 8th Jan

Reception:   4.30 - Thurs 7th Jan

                       10.00 - Fri 8th Jan

During the meetings for Early Years, we will share expectations and how to access all learning materials and the use of our main learning platform ILD. One of the meetings will be recorded for parents and uploaded to ILD.

  

We recognise that access to technology can be a barrier and aim to help you overcome this wherever we can.
