In the event of disruption to the usual routine of attending school due to Covid-19, the school have in place a Home Learning offer, which will enable children to continue to learn progressively at home. Teachers will plan and enable children to access resources, which would support the planned curriculum, that would be in place if the child was attending school as normal.
Such instances would include a future National Lockdown, or periods where children would need to self-isolate, either for an individual, a group, a class, as part of a school or whole school isolation.
We have in place a virtual classrrom. Teachers will deliver live and pre-recorded videos to children who are isolating, teaching specific activities. School has in place Microsoft Teams, which has been set up for pupils in Years 1 -6. In Nursery and Reception, Tapestry is used. Log ins have been sent out for every pupil. Further, school has subscribed to Accelerated Reader, Big Maths, Early Start Spanish and Charanga (for Music) to support and provide access to high quality resources, which can be accessed from home. In additon, we have a whole school Twitter page, with class pages associated for specific year groups. This will have videos, activities and challenges shared on it.
Where children need bespoke teaching and learning, they will be supported by the class teacher as well as the SENDCO, Ms ElSaghier.
In additon, children have been provided with a physical Home Learning pack, in case of emergency. Further physical resources will be delivered and distributed so that children have continuous access to resources and Home Learning.
Children are expected to engage fully with Home Learning and parents or carers are expected to ensure that pupils complete daily work. Work is expected to be returned, whereby teaching staff will check it. Where there are technological issues, teachers will contact parents via telephone to overcome any difficulties and provide support. Please ensure in instances of isolation, that parents and carers are able to be contacted by telephone.
Children who are vulnerable, or in great need of accessing technological devices, will be supported by school. We will ensure that devices are provided to families in most need, by working alongside the Local Authority.
