Home Learning

As we are back in National Lockdown, the Coronavirus continues to disrupt your child's learning. During this time we provide remote learning. Tasks will be set each day via SeeSaw for a range of subjects (see table below) and we would like you to send in completed work each day via SeeSaw. Your teachers will be phoning regularly to support you with any issues.  We do not want any pupil to fall behind with their learning, please help us support your child at this uncertain time. 

 

  • Your class teacher will contact you by telephone (at least weekly) to ensure you know what to do during remote learning, answer any questions and provide feedback.
  • Your child will be expected to complete remote learning and upload it to their teacher every day.
  • Not all work will be completed on screen, for some work away from the screen you may need to take a photograph or video and upload it.
  • If you do not have internet access please contact the school office to arrange support. We can provide devices and Wi-Fi dongles for families who do not have broadband access. 
  • Any pupil failing to upload work will be marked as absent and receive follow up calls.
  • If your child is ill and cannot complete home learning please telephone the school to inform us of their absence
  • Any pupils failing to complete home learning or submitting sub-standard work will receive a daily follow up call from their class teacher.
  • Latest government expectations for home learning (January 2021) are 3 hours per day for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 pupils and 4 hours per day for Year 3 - Year 6 pupils.
  • If taking part in any live sessions, pupils will abide by the online pupil code of conduct (see below)

Organising your time during isolation

Whilst the government expectation is that your children are completing the home learning set through SeeSaw, if you prefer to keep your children extra busy there are lots of ideas and materials on our website to keep them organised and learning whilst in isolation.

Corona Virus and its effects on our daily lives is a difficult concept for young children to understand. Please find below a story book and an activity that supports you to tackle misinformation and help children understand about Corona virus.
