A summary of each stage of our Remote Learning strategy can be found below. For more information, including how we will ensure we meet our safeguarding duties, please see the full strategy and policy statement at the bottom of this page.
We have written a Remote Learning strategy which considers the difference scenarios we may face during the Covid-19 Pandemic. We refer to these as 'stages'.
At each stage the kind of Remote Learning provided is adapted to suit the specific situation.
Stage One: Individual children are absent from school while they wait for the results of a Covid-19 Test.
Stage Two: Individual children are isolating as a member of their household has tested positive for Covid-19. Children will be isolating for 10days.
Stage Three: A bubble of children are required to isolate as a child has tested positive and has been in close contact with others in school. Again, this is likely to last for 10 days.
Stage Four: We enter a local or National lockdown which is likely to last for longer than 10 days.
Year group teams will put together ‘Key Skills Learning Packs’ for their year group each half term.
These packs will include worksheets and activities which provide an opportunity for children to embed key skills which are ongoing e.g. Handwriting, Multiplication and Number Bond Facts, Spellings etc. These packs will be kept centrally so that they can be distributed easily. These will either be hand-delivered or posted.
Children who are at home ill with something which is not linked to Covid-19 will not have work sent home for this period of time.
Year group teams will put together a range of lessons and activities using Google Classroom for children to complete. There is an expectation that a Reading, Writing and Maths activity will be provided on a daily basis. Foundation Subjects will not be covered as part of this stage.
Staff will use a range of pre-existing resources including Oak Academy, BBC Bitesize, YouTube Videos etc. Learning will compliment the planned sequence of learning objectives but may not be identical in its content.
There is an expectation that year group teams will feedback to children on any work they have completed once a week as a minimum.
Stage Three and Four:
As with Stage Two, year group teams will put together a range of lessons and activities using Google Classroom for children to complete. There is an expectation that a Reading, Writing and Maths activity will be provided on a daily basis. These sessions will be a mixture of 'live' sessions and pre-recorded content.
A weekly Foundation Subject Project will also be set – this should amount to no more than a further two hours of work. These projects will be open ended and will encourage children to explore topics more broadly.
Staff will be expected to create bespoke learning sessions which are similar in content and style of delivery to our normal Teaching and Learning. Learning will complement the planned sequence of learning objectives.
There is an expectation that year group teams will feedback to children on any work they have completed on one subject each day in UKS2 e.g. Reading feedback on Monday, Maths feedback on Tuesday etc. This is a minimum expectation – this could be done using Google Forms etc.
At Stage Four, the same will apply - however - we will also introduce a weekly 'social' session for small groups of children. This will support children's social development.
