On the first day of home learning, if your child is in EYFS or Year 1 you will receive a pack of work to support them at home. This will include work to complete for Maths and English plus links to online resources for the wider curriculum. If your child is in Years 2 to 6, they will receive a Teams meeting invitation to a morning meeting.
The teacher will then explain where to find the remote learning either as a Sway or through Teams. You will also receive information by email, text or phone call about what will be provided after the first couple of days. We will contact you to arrange collection or delivery of a Chromebook and additional resources where this is needed.
Regardless of whether your child is learning remotely or within the classroom they will receive the same curriculum. This has meant that some of the curriculum subjects have been adapted to ensure that the same quality of education can be received by all.
We expect that remote education provision (including remote teaching and independent work) will take pupils broadly the following number of hours each day:
Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 = 3 hours
Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 = 3-4 hours
We use Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Sway and Microsoft Teams to support online learning. The children in Years 2 to 6 have their own Office 365 account for emails. Guidance has been provided on how to use a Chromebook (where appropriate) and how to access Teams or Sways. Staff are available to support parents via Class Dojo.

We use a combination of the following approaches to deliver remote education:
For year 1 -6
For Nursery and Reception:
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:
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:
We recognise that some pupils, for example some pupils with SEND, may not be able to access remote education without support from adults at home. We will work with parents and carers to support those pupils in the following ways:
If your child is not in school because they are self-isolating, we will follow the same approach as above.
We will contact you to discuss our child’s learning at least twice a week.
Thank you for your support at this challenging time. We are immensely proud of the response of our school community to these unique circumstances.
