Learning from home

Remote Learning

In a lockdown situation children will remain at home and high quality online and offline resources will be made available to them. Children will continue to follow our creative curriculum so that knowledge and skills are built incrementally.

NurseryReceptionKS1KS2

The Government expect children in Key Stage 1 (Y1 & Y2) to complete a minimum of three hours home learning each day whilst Key Stage 2 children (Y3-Y6) should complete a minimum of 4 hours per day.

Those hours include both direct teaching and time for pupils to complete tasks or assignments independently. A member of staff will monitor this work and will contact the child/family if work is not completed daily. A member of staff will also mark this work and give feedback.

We recognise that some pupils may not have suitable online access at home. We support those pupils to access remote education by providing learning packs which are sent home.

We must all work together

As a school, teachers, pupils and as parents and carers we all have a role to play and a responsibility to ensure our children have access to appropriate and effective learning resources.
