Remote Learning Information

 

Remote education provision: information for parents

Dear Parents/ Carers,

 

This information is intended to provide clarity and transparency to parents and carers about what to expect from remote education now local restrictions require children to remain at home.

A pupil’s first day or two of being educated remotely might look different from our standard approach, while we take all necessary actions to prepare for a longer period of remote teaching.

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

 

Work will be set via seesaw. The class teachers will set up daily registration meetings with their class via zoom. If your child does not have access to the internet, a work pack will be provided. This needs to be returned to school on Friday and will be marked the following week once it has been quarantined.

 

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 due to resource issues etc.

 

 

 

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 the following number of hours each day:

Primary school-aged pupils

3 hours minimum

 

Accessing remote education

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

 

All links to these resources are offered via Seesaw when appropriate-

  • Zoom
  • Youtube learning videos
  • Purple Mash
  • Times Table Rockstars

 

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. We take the following approaches to support those pupils to access remote education:

 

Paper work packs will be provided if no device or internet access is available

 

How will my child be taught remotely?

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

 

  • Pre-recorded teaching by class teachers (online lessons)
  • Recorded teaching (e.g. Oak National Academy lessons)
  • Activities and work packs provided via seesaw
  • reading books pupils have at home
  • 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?

 

All children are expected to try their best with the activities provided with support from parents where possible in this current situation. We understand that these are very challenging times, and we are mindful of adding extra pressure to families. We would like to see children trying to engage and if they encounter any issues, they should inform class teachers so we can support them where necessary.

 

 

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

 

Staff members will be monitoring engagement via Seesaw. For any children who aren’t engaging, phone calls and zoom calls will be made. Children who are receiving work packs will return them on Fridays so that feedback can be given the following week via seesaw or email where possible.

 

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

Feedback can take many forms and may not always mean extensive written comments for individual children. For example, whole-class feedback or quizzes marked automatically via digital platforms are also valid and effective methods, amongst many others. Our approach to feeding back on pupil work is as follows:

 

  • Daily marking of work completed on Seesaw
  • Weekly marking of work packs that have been sent home

 

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 in the following ways:

 

  • Zoom meetings via Seesaw
  • Telephone call support
  • Support via Seesaw
  • Work packs will be accessible to children with SEND.

 

Many thanks for your continued support.

 

With kind regards,

 

Mrs F Nickson

Headteacher
