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 local restrictions require entire cohorts (or bubbles) to remain at home.
For details of what to expect where individual pupils are self-isolating, please see the final section of this page.
The remote curriculum: what is taught to pupils at home
A pupil’s first day or two of being educated remotely might look different from our standard approach, while we take all necessary actions to prepare for a longer period of remote teaching.
What should my child expect from immediate remote education in the first day or two of pupils being sent home?
Children may be signposted to recorded lessons (such as Oak National Academy) which follow the National Curriculum.
Following the first few days of remote education, will my child be taught broadly the same curriculum as they would if they were in school?
We teach the same broad and balanced curriculum remotely as we do in school. This carefully sequenced curriculum means that children will have meaningful and ambitious work set each day in a number of subjects.
RE, English and maths will be prioritised to allow children to have the opportunity to reach end of year expectations and be ready to access the next year. Children will need to complete all work set I order to ensure they do not fall behind in their learning.
Remote teaching and study time each day
How long can I expect work set by the school to take my child each day?
We expect that remote education (including remote teaching and independent work/ activities) will take pupils broadly the following number of hours each day:
Key Stage 1 At least 3 hours a day (including play-based learning)
Key Stage 2 At least 4 hours a day
Each class will have a daily timetable which will be on Seesaw for you to view.
Accessing remote education
How will my child access any online remote education you are providing?
Each day, children will be set work online using Seesaw. This can be accessed through the Seesaw Family App or through the Seesaw website: https://web.seesaw.me/
