Remote Learning

DfE: Scenarios where remote education should be provided

Attendance is mandatory for all pupils of compulsory school age. Schools should consider providing remote education to pupils in circumstances when in-person attendance is either not possible or contrary to government guidance.

This might include

  • occasions when school leaders decide that it is not possible for their setting to open safely, or that opening would contradict guidance from local or central government
  • occasions when individual pupils, for a limited duration, are unable to physically attend their school butare able tocontinue learning, for example pupils with an infectious illness

In these circumstances pupils should have access to remote education as soon as reasonably practicable, though in proportion to the length of absence and disruption to their learning.

Where needed, you should consider providing remote education equivalent in length to the core teaching pupils would receive in school and including recorded or live direct teaching time, as well as time for pupils to complete tasks and assignments independently.

Good practiceis considered to be:

  • 3 hours a day on average across the cohort for key stage 1, with less for younger children
  • 4 hours a day for key stage 2

During periods of partial or full school closure, all children will be provided with at least the minimum entitlement of remote learning as directed by the Department of Education. This willmay bein a variety of ways. We will continue sharing learning via ourSeeSawapp

Supporting our SEND and EAL learners

Class teachers will continue to meet the needs of all children in their class. Regular attendance at live lessons will ensure that teachers are able to continue to adapt the curriculum and share necessary resources to allow all children to be able to progress. Our SENCO will continue to work with parents/carersto ensure that all children are able to access a broad and ambitious curriculum.
