Remote Learning

Remote education provision: information for parents and carers

This information is intended to provide clarity and transparency to pupils and parents or carers about what to expect from remote education where national or local restrictions, or individual circumstances, require pupils to remain at home.


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.


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


A pupil’s class team will make contact with parents / carers to find out what type of home learning is required taking into account the needs of the child and the wishes of the family.  This will be a personalised response and take into account health, social care and personal circumstances.

The class team will endeavour to meet these needs in a way that the family can access the work quickly, e.g. by email.


Following the first few days of remote education, will my child be taught broadly the same curriculum as they would if they were in school?


If a child is needing remote education for more than a few days, we aim teach the same curriculum remotely as we do in school wherever possible and appropriate. Adaptations may need to be made and the remote learning may need to be blended with appropriate online resources and activities, or learning and activities that can be accessed in a home environment.


The class team will share this learning in an appropriate way depending on the needs of the family and work, which may include emails, setting tasks on online sites, and paper copies of work posted home.

All remote learning will continue to be personalised and take into account health, social care and personal circumstances.



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?


We expect parents and carers to support their child to learn remotely from home as needed for their child’s personal circumstances.  This may include helping them to read information, working 1:1 with them, monitoring them on online platforms, explaining anything they don’t understand.

Parents and carers can ask school for any clarification to any work set as needed.

Parents and carers should maintain contact with school each week to ensure feedback and appropriate learning is maintained.


How will you check whether my child is engaging with their work and how will I be informed if there are concerns?


The school will be in contact as a minimum once a week to discuss engagement with work, concerns and as a welfare check. This may be more often depending on the circumstances and needs of the child.
