In response to the Department of Education’s request we have developed a Remote Learning Policy. Each and every school will fulfill this request differently, indeed a range of approaches are in use across our local primary schools. This policy, in its development, has taken into account the views of parents, children and staff.
A text message was sent to the primary contacts yesterday to ask them to ensure that their child bring home the passwords for four online platforms. Please check this with your child daily as some teachers are preparing these on different days. If your child does not bring this home by Thursday please contact the office and this will be emailed to you. If your child is absent this week then details will also be emailed to you on Friday.
Children have all been trained on the use of these online platforms (apart from 365 email), so will be confident in its use. The platforms will run to a timetable and all staff can see if children are accessing and completing work from home. If they are not, staff will contact them in the first instance using their 365 email.
In the link below you will find our Remote Learning Policy, links to the four platforms and also guides for parents/carers, please read these.
Remote learning is only to be used in school terms when; your child has been sent home as part of their school bubble to isolate; if they need to isolate due to a confirmed case in their home ‘bubble’; should there be another lock down.
