Remote Learning

Should your child need to access learning from home, our remote learning offer is very much aligned to the learning that is being offered in school, in terms of the key objectives that are being covered.  

How we will achieve the government’s remote learning expectations

  • Online learning will be provided through Google Classroom, including some live sessions during class, year group or whole school closures to enable interaction with teachers and support staff, through services such as Zoom or Google Meet.  This allows teachers to upload their own resources and provide feedback to students. 
  • Planned lessons will have clearly defined learning objectives which relate to the curriculum, matching the in-school objectives and enable students to continue learning.
  • Students’ work will be based on a range of resources, which may include online content such as videos created by teachers, links to Oak National or other online materials as well as activities which can be completed away from the screen.
  • Learning activities will be accessible to all students and should provide a degree of challenge.
  • Regular opportunities for assessment will be planned.  This may include self-assessment, responsive feedback to students collectively and/or individual feedback to students. 
  • All students not in school due to reasons relating to Covid 19 are expected to take part in online learning unless they are unwell or are attending school as part of the provision for vulnerable learners and the children of critical workers (when applicable).  Where students are not engaging, we will make contact with parents to discuss what the barriers to learning are and provide support to overcome these where possible.  Where barriers cannot be overcome, pupils should be considered vulnerable and therefore be eligible for a place in school (when applicable).  
  • Students and families who normally receive additional support from the school may receive personal phone calls or video calls to see how things are going.

We have put together the following guides to support parents and carers with their child’s remote learning
