Remote Learning

Remote education provision: information for parents

This information 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, or circumstances beyond or control require entire cohorts to remain at home.

The remote curriculum: what is taught to pupils at home

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

 

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?

 

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:

Early Years and Foundation Stage

Between 3 and 4 years

Key Stage 1

Between 3 and 4 hours

Key Stage 3 and 4

Between 4 and 5 hours

Accessing remote education

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

 

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:

 

 

How will my child be taught remotely?

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

 

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?

 

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

 

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:

 

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 with tailored learning packs or lessons delivered on an individual basis by key adults.
