Children will have access to remote learning in the following circumstances:
This document outlines our planned provision for remote learning should an individual or a Class Bubble need to self-isolate.
Individual child (or small number of children) self-isolating
Children self-isolating (but their class bubble/school remains open) for reasons given above will be provided with work by their class teacher.
Closure of a Class Bubble
Daily interaction with the teacher over the week is of great importance. The full curriculum will be taught and will involve the use of online learning via Google Classroom (GC) including links to some video content e.g Oak Academy/BBC Bitesize/White Rose Maths
Google Classroom will be the main source for learning. Please ensure you have signed up for this and can access it.
Feedback for children on the vast majority of their work will be supplied via GC. Home learning is an opportunity to build independence and resilience in the children. Learning provided by the school will be accessible to all children including children with SEN.
Remote home learning activities will be provided for the first 2 days initially. After this (from Day 3) the work provided will broadly cover that taught in class.
To enable teaching and learning to continue as effectively as possible during the need for Class Bubble remote learning:
We will expect ALL children to access this provision. We will provide additional support for identified individuals. This will take different forms depending on need.
During Class Bubble closure our staff will:
Remote Learning is Compulsory
Children will be expected to:
Year 1 and 2 (Red Area) 3 hours minimum
Year 3,4,5 and 6 (Blue and Green Areas) 4 hours minimum
Parents/Carers are responsible for:
If a child is unwell and unable to complete any learning on a particular day while self-isolating, parents must report their child’s absence via GC by 9:30am so that their child is recorded as ‘absent from learning’ and the class teacher will not expect a piece of work submitted on that day.
How to access work
Learning tasks and resources will be accessed via GC. If families cannot access GC we will provide some tasks via email or hard copies.
GC can also be accessed via PlayStation and XBox.
Hard (Printed) copies can be returned to the school for marking. Marking of hard copies will take longer to allow for quarantine of work.
School laptops may be available for those with no means of access to online education. These remain the property of the school and will need to be returned when the child returns to school.
In the event of a whole school closure the school will follow DfE guidance. Teachers may be required to support classes in school (key workers) and this may mean your child’s class teacher changes if they are asked to work in school. Most children will have their usual class teacher and support staff. Key worker children will be placed into bubbles with consistent members of staff working on a rota. They will complete all home learning set by their class teachers on GC.
