During this period of national Lockdown, we have moved to providing home learning via a Microsoft Teams platform. All children have been provided details to log on and access this platform from home.
Teachers will be uploading daily pre-recorded content prior to 11am, Monday to Friday. The content will be in the form of teaching input that matches the pupil workbooks that have been sent home. Children and their families can watch the recorded input and then complete the accompanying tasks in their children’s workbooks. Children will have from 11am on the day of upload to 11am the next day to complete the tasks set. We are favouring pre-recorded material over live lessons as families can replay content and access recordings at times convenient to them. Parents can email class teachers via class emails for any help, support or advice that they may need. Teachers will respond to emails during the school working day.
In addition, to daily upload children will also be able to access a variety of online platforms, which support many areas of the curriculum. Weekly printed themed learning packs can also be collected from the school office on Tuesday mornings.
We have chosen a Tuesday as the collection day as this coincides with when weekly food parcels are available for collection.

What is Remote Education?
Remote Education is a broad term that encompass any learning that happens outside of the classroom, with the teacher not present in the same location as the pupils.
How long can I expect learning set by school to take my child each day?
We expect that remote education provision (including remote teaching and independent work) will take pupils broadly 3 hours per day.
How will my child access the remote education you are providing?
We use Microsoft Office 365 and Microsoft Teams to support online learning. Your child has their own Office 365 account.
Where needed, children have been loaned an Ipad or laptop from us.
You will have received information to help you support your child with this. If you have any questions then please call the school office and they will signpost you to additional support.
How will my child be taught remotely?
We use a combination of the following approaches to deliver remote education:
What are your expectations for pupil engagement?
Your child is expected to complete the work set. We are here to support both you and your child as much as possible. Please do email or phone if there is anything we can help you with.
