Remote Learning

Remote Education Provision

Information for parents

This information is intended to provide clarity and transparency to pupils and parents and carers about what to expect from remote education if local restrictions require pupils or entire cohorts to remain at home.

 

What should my child expect from immediate remote education in the first day or two of pupils being sent home?

Please see the Remote Learning Policy (below). This provides details of a variety of possible scenarios.

 

Following the first few days of remote education, will my child be taught broadly the same curriculum as they would if they were in school?

We teach the same curriculum remotely as we do in school wherever possible and appropriate. However, we have needed to make some adaptations in some subjects as it is not always possible to provide the same experience as we can in school.

 

Remote teaching and study time each day

How long can I expect work set by the school to take my child each day?

We expect that remote education (including remote teaching and independent work) will take pupils broadly 3-4 hours each day.

 

Accessing remote education

How will my child access any online remote education you are providing?

Remote education is provided through the Microsoft TEAMS Learning Platform which is an interactive resource. We also use the Class Pages on the School Website.

 

If my child does not have digital or online access at home, how will you support them to access remote education?

We recognise that some pupils may not have suitable online access at home. Parents should contact the school in the first instance to make us aware of your situation. The school completed an audit of this during the Autumn Term 2020 and continues to review arrangements on a termly basis.

 

How will my child be taught remotely?

We use a combination of the following approaches to teach pupils remotely:

  • live tutorials – group and individual (online lessons, including assemblies)
  • recorded teaching (e.g. Oak National Academy lessons, video/audio recordings made by teachers)
  • printed resources produced by teachers (e.g. workbooks, worksheets)
  • textbooks and reading books pupils have at home (e.g. CPG Homework books)
  • commercially available websites supporting the teaching of specific subjects or areas, including video clips or sequences

 

Engagement and feedback

What are your expectations for my child’s engagement and the support that we as parents and carers should provide at home?

Please see the Remote Learning Policy (below) for detailed guidance.

 

How will you check whether my child is engaging with their work and how will I be informed if there are concerns?

Please see the Remote Learning Policy (below). Our SLT and Pastoral staff liaise with teaching and support staff to check on participation.

 

How will you assess my child’s work and progress?

Microsoft TEAMS is an interactive platform and work can be assessed daily with feedback issued.

 

Additional support for pupils with particular needs

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 we will work with parents and carers to support those pupils.

 

Remote education for self-isolating pupils

Where individual pupils need to self-isolate but the majority of their peer group remains in school, how remote education is provided will likely differ from the approach for whole groups. This is due to the challenges of teaching pupils both at home and in school.

Please see the Remote Learning Policy (below).

 

If my child is not in school because they are self-isolating, how will their remote education differ from the approaches described above?

Please see the Remote Learning Policy (below).
