Daily lessons are uploaded to your child's Class Page.
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.
In the case of a class bubble or the whole school having to stay at home, remote learning will start immediately or the next working day. Your child will be sent home with, or you will be asked to pick up, a remote learning pack which will include a reading book, a home learning journal and a pencil. Daily work will be uploaded to your child’s class page (www.studleygreenprimary.co.uk/class-pages-1) or to SeeSaw (EYFS only).
We teach the same curriculum remotely as we do in school wherever possible and appropriate. However, we have needed to make some adaptations in some subjects. For example, subjects that would normally include significant elements of practical work in the live classroom, such as sciences, music or technology. In these and other cases, video can substitute well for practical work.
Pupils in EYFS are likely to have particular needs which cannot easily be addressed at home in the same way as those of other pupils. Likewise, some pupils with SEND will require specific approaches tailored to their circumstances.
The amount of work set will vary across the classes but we recommend:
For most children, their class page on the school website will contain all the remote learning resources (studleygreenprimary.co.uk/class-pages-1)
Children in Luna and Pan class access their learning through the website or app Seesaw (app.seesaw.me/#/login)
We recognise that some pupils may not have suitable online access at home. We take the following approaches to support those pupils to access remote education:
We use a combination of the following approaches to teach pupils remotely:
We expect you or your child to sign the online register every ‘school’ day. This will be clearly visible on your child’s class page and enables us to see who is accessing the learning and who may need additional support.
Each class has a school email account visible on your child’s class page. Please use this to send in pictures of your child and their learning. Parents of children in EYFS can also use Seesaw to send in pictures and comments. As most teaching staff are teaching in school during the day, we will aim to respond to all emails within 24 hours.
We realise that sitting down to do focussed activities with your child at home can be tricky. We suggest, where possible, you make a timetable of the routine of the day and show them when they are going to do their home learning. If you can get into a routine where you do activities at similar times every day it will make it easier to manage. Please feel free to use this model timetable as a starting point.
09.00-09.30 PE / physical activity
09.30-10.00 Numbots/TT Rockstars
10.00-10.45 Maths No Problem
We will be monitoring the daily online register, the class email and the quizzes to check engagement. If there are any concerns, we will call to offer additional support and advice.
Feedback can take many forms and may not always mean extensive written comments for individual children. For example, whole-class feedback or quizzes marked automatically via digital platforms are also valid and effective methods, amongst many others. Our approach to feeding back on pupil work is as follows:
We recognise that some pupils, for example some pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), may not be able to access remote education without support from adults at home. For children with SEND it is important to have a visual routine for them to follow, concrete apparatus, practical activities, visual support, regular learning breaks and an emphasis on over learning. We acknowledge the difficulties this may place on families, and we will work with parents and carers to support those pupils in the following ways:
Where individual pupils need to self-isolate but the majority of their peer group remains in school, how remote education is provided will likely differ from the approach for whole groups. This is due to the challenges of teaching pupils both at home and in school.
If your child is sent home with suspected symptoms or the family has been told to isolate, your child must stay away until a negative test result has been received. In this instance, your child will be sent home with a home learning journal, a reading book, a pencil and a class pack of learning that includes maths, English and topic. If your child receives a negative test result, they can return to school. If your child tests positive they will need to isolate and learning will be uploaded on their class page.
