Welcome to our Remote Learning area
This page is designed to support parents of pupils who have to self-isolate because of COVID 19. As a school, we want to provide as much support as we can whilst the children are isolating. We will ensure that the children will receive up to date age related learning, which is relevant to subjects within the National Curriculum.
When providing remote learning, teachers are responsible for:
- Ensuring that all children have been given the link to join the zoom meeting at the correct time. This should be shared via Class Dojo.
- TA staff to be given access to the link to live lessons to help and support during the session.
- Jointly planning lessons for the period of closure with others in their year group
- Keeping a register of the children that attend the zoom lessons
- Providing a live lesson for English and a live lesson for maths daily that meets the needs of the children (see Appendix for table outlining times and what the lessons are based on.)
- Providing additional work linked to the curriculum topic if possible to be completed independently by the children
- Creating online resources to support lessons throughout the week where applicable
- Ensure children have access to online learning sites such as ReadTheory and timestable rockstars.
- Report back to SLT and/or to Lisa Winkle (HSLW) any issues that arise.
- After 4 days of learning to have a catch up day where staff contact the children individually to go through any issues they may be having with the work and to check the welfare of the children.
- All communication with Parents during this time will be through Class Dojo.
In the event of individual pupil self-isolation the class teacher will ensure:
- Weekly home learning to be set via Class Dojo or workbooks/packs sent home for all individual pupils who find themselves in isolation.
- HSLW to liaise with class teacher as soon as possible once a child has been identified as self-isolating. Work is allocated as soon as possible once a child has been identified as self-isolating.
- Work set will be based, where applicable, to the curriculum delivered in school.
- Work is tailored to each pupil and those with SEN have individual work provided.
- Lessons for these pupils may come from Oak Academy and other online sources.
- HSLW to regular check in on those children who are self isolating.
