Remote Education

In the event of a Covid 19 related absence or school closure.

Our remote learning plan

Our remote learning plan has been made with our pupils and their families in mind.  We believe that this strategy will work best for the children at our school.

We will set out what equipment children will need to access remote learning and learn effectively at home eg

Hedgehogs – Nursery & Reception

We suggest two hours structured learning a day

Owls – Year 1 & Year 2

Foxes – Year 3 & Year 4

What we expect from your child

It’s important that your child engages with home learning and keeps to their timetable, if they aren’t engaging with the learning, we’ll use the following strategies to provide additional support:

What you can do to help

We appreciate that if this situation arises, it may present some challenges for you.  We kindly ask for your support so that we can continue to provide high-quality education for your child during this time.

Younger children in particular may need support in accessing online materials and staying focused with their remote learning.  We ask that you help them as much as you can.

At the same time, we don’t expect you to watch your child all day, and we wouldn’t expect parents/carers to get involved in remote lessons in place of our teachers.  But, it would be really helpful if you can take an active role in your child’s learning by asking them about their day and what they’ve learned.

Our top tips:

Our staff will endeavour to make regular courtesy calls in order to stay in touch.  However, please keep in touch with us and do let us know if you’re having any difficulties with remote learning, or of you have any questions.  You can contact the school office or class teacher.

Please access our Facebook page to celebrate your child’s learning too.
