Remote Learning

We hope that there will be no need for any further school closure in the future, but if this happens we have a clear plan in place thanks to the work that was put in during the Covid Pandemic in 2020/21. Our current Remote Learning Plan takes into account the feedback we received from families, teachers and children.

What will happen if the school must close for any reason?

Our offer centres around the learning grid, which is produced for all classes. The grid is set out with activities for each day and provides the requisite 3 hours learning for KS1 pupils and 4 hours of learning for KS2 pupils. The grid provides a mixture of online and offline activities, covering English and maths and a range of curriculum subjects.  The grid is enhanced through pre-recorded sessions and explanations which are shared with pupils on the Class Dojo platform and, where they are appropriate, we use educational sites such as Oak Academy, White Rose Maths, BBC and Read, Write, Inc to support and enhance our offer.

In the event of Remote Learning being required;

Grids would be made available to families as soon as possible on Class Dojo and paper packs, including the grid and any paper resources for the week would be able to be collected from school but details would be given as required.

Our offer aims to replicate closely what is happening in school. 

Work that the children have produced at home should be uploaded to the pupil portfolio, where class based staff will give feedback. If it is appropriate, feedback may give pointers for improvement as well as praise.
