Remote Learning

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.  We will be guided by local and national protocols and will need to be flexible in our approach.  However, we will be consistent in the timings, expectations and platforms that students will be expected to fully engage in. 

The school will use the following platforms, all of which will be accessible via their individually allocated Device:

Learning From Home

What should my child expect from immediate remote education in the first day or two of pupils being sent home?

Pupils will be sent home with all necessary materials and resources they need to support their online learning. 

Engagement and Feedback

What are your expectations for my child’s engagement and the support that we as parents and carers should provide at home?

  • Students should be online at 08:40 each morning, joining their class with their microphone muted and camera on. Headphones are optional but useful if siblings are around.  Links for form coaching will be provided by email.  This will be used as a daily well-being check and to identify and remove any barriers to learning.  

  • Pupils should be appropriately dressed.

  • Pupils should not be eating. Breaktimes are timetabled and the whole school stops for lunch between 12:35 and 1:45.

  • Pupils should have a quiet place to work, undisturbed by a TV or radio.

  • Pupils should be sat in an upright chair at a desk or table with all their school equipment to hand, free from toys or pets.

  • Work should continue to be presented to the high standards set by the school. As with all homework; dated, titled and underlined with a ruler, written in suitable ink pen [not biro or felt tip] or sharp pencil. 

  • We do not expect pupils to start school work before 08:40 nor continue after 15:25.

  • Key Stage 2 should be able to work independently, once online, from 09:00 – 12:30. They may need help organising equipment or reminding what they need to do during their afternoons.
