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 if individual pupils are self-isolating.
The remote curriculum: what is taught to pupils at home
We know that the best place for children to learn is in school. However, the COVID-19 pandemic may require your child to spend time at home. Of course, we want to support your child’s learning as best we can in the days they are away from school.
The following process will happen if your child tests positive for COVID-19:
-School are informed by you that your child needs to isolate because they have tested positive.
-We will assign home learning to your child’s Google Classroom account for you to access. Completed work, or a photo, should be uploaded to Google Classroom and your child’s teacher will give feedback on their learning.
-Each day your child is at home, school will call to check in with you. This will only be a short call- please answer to let us know how you are.
-Each day, children will join story time live with their class. Look out for a text message from them to let you know what time this will be at (it may need to alter each day depending on staffing and how we can best organise this in school). Your child's teacher is also available for live sessions 1:1 to feedback and teach each day. Again, we will be in touch with the times of these sessions.
The work your child will be assigned matches as closely as possible the content of the learning they would be accessing in school. While we are balancing those at home and the majority in school, we have less capacity for live teaching online. If the numbers of children isolating at home increases, our capacity for enhancing remote learning through more live lessons will also increase. We will get in touch if there are any changes to the above.
