Remote Learning Guidance – A Contingency Plan

Remote learning for an outbreak

If the school or a class or year group need to be closed, whole class remote learning will be implemented.  The intended outcome is that ongoing learning and progress across the curriculum are at the forefront of all set work.  Remote learning will be delivered through the Seesaw Online Learning programme.  Seesaw is the platform that we are using for homework, so that staff, children and parents are already clear about how it works, enabling a smooth transition from school to remote learning.

How will the process work?

  • Work will begin to be uploaded to Seesaw ready for the first full school day after closure.
  • Daily lessons will have equivalent length to the core teaching pupils would receive in school, including daily contact with teachers
  • Students will receive a range of lessons daily that teach a planned and well-sequenced curriculum with knowledge and skills that are built incrementally and continue from their in-school learning.  Work set will reflect normal curriculum objectives.
  • For each lesson, a post will be made on Seesaw before the start of the school day (9.00am) with relevant learning information and details of the task to be completed.
  • We will provide clear explanations of new content, delivered through high-quality curriculum resources or videos.
  • Teachers will respond to submitted work on the same day where work has been uploaded by 3pm. Responses may acknowledge receipt or take the form of individual, or whole class guidance.  A minimum of one piece of work daily will have a personalised comment.
  • For pupils whose parents have confirmed in advance that access to the internet is limited, a printed pack of the same tasks will be available for collection from the School Office.

Remote learning for a small number of children self-isolating

 

If your child is at home because they are displaying symptoms of COVID-19, no work will be set as they are considered to be unwell.

 

If your child is self-isolating due to COVID-19 symptoms being displayed by a family member, work prepared by the class teacher will be emailed directly to parents.  Work set will be equivalent to time that children would spend on core subjects in school and begin the next full school day.

 

For pupils whose parents have confirmed in advance that access to the internet is limited, a printed pack of the same tasks will be available for collection from the School Office.
