Remote Learning Offer

Remote Learning Offer

Class teachers are working with their own class members both in school and in an emergency, at home. Teachers are endeavouring to follow our Curriculum Map and give pupils a broad and balanced curriculum. Some activities will have to be adapted to suit the challenges faced by each individual and each family. Remember to use timings as guides; you do not need to finish each activity… if it takes too long. Perhaps bump things into the next day or just stop!


We will all do our best!

Our intention is to provide sequenced and well-planned lessons which build on prior knowledge and skills. Each day, teachers will provide meaningful and ambitious work in a range of subjects.  We take a blended-approach which mixes paper-based, online learning (content links, live & recorded) and self-directed activities.  Teachers use a variety of approaches including explaining new content, modelling, interactive/questioning, practice/applying and feedback & assessment.

Our approach attempts to…

  • mirror as much as possible the learning going on in school with home and home with school
  • keep children connected with their friends whether in school or at home
  • keep pupils connected with their teachers
  • ensure learning takes place and well-being is kept at the heart of everything.

We expect all children to engage and be supported by parents/carers to access the remote learning provided (please see the activities and timings below).

If your child does not have digital or online access at home, please contact us immediately by phoning Mrs Munt (in the school office) on 01722 327227 and alternative arrangements will be made to suit your individual family circumstances. 

If your child has special educational needs/ disabilities, class teachers will provide individualised work.

Class Teachers:

  • Send an email of the timetable for each day. This will include any resources/ video links as required
  • Set up a ‘Check-up’ either using email, TEAMS or telephone call
  • Use teaching videos. These may be pre-recorded by the teacher. They may also be selected from websites (i.e. White Rose or Oak National Academy etc.)  Teachers will send you specific links as necessary
  • Ensure that there is a selection of learning including – English / Maths / Foundation subjects and independent activities
  • Follows national guidelines in providing work / learning. (3 hours for KS1 and 4 hours for KS2)
  • Help parents to adapt the work to suit their family circumstances and their child
