Remote Education - September 2021
If your child tests positive for COVID-19 from September 2021, they will need to isolate for ten days.
Not all people with COVID-19 will have symptoms. Where appropriate, we will support pupils who have to self-isolate because they have tested positive to work or learn from home if they are well enough to do so.
When the class teacher is informed that an individual is isolating with Covid19 following a positive PCR test, work will be provided.
In most cases, work will not be provided instantly as teachers will be teaching the pupils who are in school.
As soon as is practically possible, teachers will communicate with parents and pupils and provide their remote education (via either email or Google Classroom).
This page provides links to online resources that can support pupils at home.
We would also direct parents / carers towards
Oak National Academy- https://classroom.thenational.academy/schedule-by-year
Please click on the link above, select your child's year group and regardless of the day of the week, start on "Monday" and work through each day's learning activities.
There are lots of excellent resources on this site including video lessons.
Please contact the school if you need any help, support or resources to support your child at home if they have COVID-19 and need to stay at home.
In the event of a a class, group or small number of pupils needing to self-isolate, or if there is a local lockdown requiring pupils to remain at home, we have prepared a strong contingency plan for remote education provision.
Click here to access our Remote Education Provision Guide for Parents. The information in this document is intended to provide clarity and transparency to pupils and parents or carers about what to expect from remote education where national or local restrictions require entire cohorts (or bubbles) to remain at home.
Click here to access our Remote Learning Policy. This document sets out expectations for pupil, parents and staff regarding remote learning and our policy / procedures
We use Google Classroom as a platform for our remote / online learning.
Please click here for a Google Classroom How To Guide put together by Miss Timson.
Google Classroom is a preferable alternative to making up packs of worksheets for several reasons:
- the class teacher can view the completed work, acknowledge it and respond to it;
- the work set can include videos, pictures, sound clips, which will make the work more interesting
- work can be set on an ongoing basis;pupils can direct questions to the class teacher.
Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
In Early Years, the focus for the children’s learning is different to other year groups, therefore we will be supporting this using a different process.
Each week activities will be uploaded to the EYFS class pages of this website with ideas for Literacy, Maths, Creative/Physical Development and Understanding the World. An email will be sent out to you when these activities are available to view.
We ask that you use these activities to support your child’s home learning and if you wish, you could take photos of these or keep a scrapbook of your favourites to share when your child returns to school..
It is really vital that the children are hearing stories EVERY day. If they have a reading book, please also take 5 minutes a day to hear them read this.
