As a school, we are ready and prepared to deliver remote learning for our children, should the need arise either due to a period of self-isolation, a bubble closure or another National Lockdown.
Every child and family in school has access to a Class Dojo account. In years 1-6, this is where teachers will upload learning for them to complete via Dojo portfolios. It also provides an interactive platform so that every child can receive feedback about their learning in order to move their learning forwards. In Reception, every child and family has access to a Tapestry account and learning will be uploaded via documents on Tapestry. This will then be used to assess and provide feedback.
The Department for Education requirements for the minimum amount of work that needs to completed each day is three hours for reception and Key Stage 1 (Year 1 and 2) and four hours for Key Stage 2 (Years 3, 4, 5 and 6). This is not continuous and does not include breaks. We will also provide extra optional activities for children to take part in while are home and these will be sent via our weekly Home Learning newsletter.
Learning tasks will be varied to meet children’s individual needs and where resources are required, for example Handwriting sheets and Phonics booklets in Reception and Key Stage 1, these will be provided electronically, but can be printed and collected from school if families request it.
As a school we use Class Dojo for all our communication, but we are also available via phone and email and we actively encourage families to reach out to use for support.
