On the first day of home learning, your child will receive a pack of work to support them at home. This will include work to complete for maths and English plus links to online resources for the wider curriculum.
You will also receive information by email, text or phone call about what will be provided after the first couple of days. We will contact you to arrange collection or delivery of a Chromebook and additional resources where this is needed.
We teach the same curriculum remotely as we do in school wherever possible and appropriate. However, we have needed to make the following adaptations:
Nursery = 1 hour
Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 = At least 3 hours
Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 = At least 4 hours
We use Microsoft Office 365 and Microsoft Teams to support online learning.
Your child has their own Office 365 account for emails.
Your child has been shown how to use a Chromebook and how to access Teams.
You will have received information to help you support your child with this. For pre-recorded work, we use Microsoft Sway and you will receive links to these in the information from school.

We use a combination of the following approaches to deliver remote education:
For year 1 -6
For Nursery and Reception:
We recognise that some pupils may not have suitable online access at home. We take the following approaches to support those pupils to access remote education:
Feedback can take many forms and may not always mean extensive written comments for individual children; for example, whole-class feedback or quizzes marked automatically via digital platforms are also valid and effective methods, amongst many others. Our approach to feeding back on pupil work is as follows:
We recognise that some pupils, for example some pupils with SEND, may not be able to access remote education without support from adults at home. We will work with parents and carers to support those pupils in the following ways:
If your child is not in school because they are self-isolating, we will follow the same approach as above.
We will contact you to discuss our child’s learning at least twice a week.
