Remote Learning Offer
All lessons and activities are accessed through our school Virtual Learning Environment.
- Timetables follow pupils in-school timetable wherever possible and are uploaded weekly for pupils.
- Activities and lessons provided for pupils are, wherever possible, the same as would have been provided had the children been in school and the same as those provided for pupils still in school. Work continues to follow our whole school curriculum in all subjects (long and medium term plans).
- Work on the VLE provides at least 3 hours learning per day in KS1 and 4 hours in KS2.
- Teachers provide clear explanations of new content and activities.
- Pupils are able to upload their work using the ‘Assignment’ tool for teacher feedback. Pupils can upload work either in Word, PowerPoint etc. or by taking a photograph.
- Rewards e.g. HOPS points are used to motivate and engage pupils.
- Video lessons are uploaded each week. These may include Oak Academy lessons, videos of teachers delivering content or voice over PowerPoints and other learning software that guide the pupils through the lesson, giving opportunities for work completion and reflection.
Feedback and Marking
- Deadline for completion of work is no more than 48 hours. This allows all pupils, regardless of family arrangements, to complete work around their own circumstances. If work is handed in late, it will not be marked.
- The level of feedback given is, wherever possible, in line with the level of feedback that would be given if the children were in school. Examples of this include:
- Where pupils would have self/peer marked, answer sheets or self-marking activities are provided.
- For extended pieces of work, teachers may provide individual written feedback, annotated work or voice recorded feedback to set next steps or address misconceptions.
Teacher communication with pupils
- Teacher feedback written or verbal provides pupils with an understanding of what they are doing well and what they need to improve on.
- Daily Teams check-in support pupils’ well-being and allow teachers to set out work, review work and answer any questions.
- Vulnerable pupils, who are not in school, are contacted weekly for well-being checks by a member of staff.
Teacher communication with parents
- Teams calls are for pupils only to ensure they get effective interaction with their teacher.
- Parents with any questions or concerns regarding their child’s work or have general concerns about their child should email the teacher directly. Emails will be answered within 48 hours.
