Home Learning

Intent

We will ensure that we have the capacity to offer immediate remote learning, from the second day of a covid related absence. We understand the need to continually deliver high quality education, including during periods of remote working – whether for an individual pupil or many. We recognise the importance of maintaining high expectations in all areas of school life and ensuring that all pupils have access to the learning resources and support they need to succeed. Through the implementation of this policy, we aim to address the key concerns associated with remote working, such as online safety, access to educational resources, data protection, and safeguarding. With regard to the DfE ‘Good Practice for Remote Education’, our focus is on the delivery of the curriculum that pupils will miss due to their absence from school while their peers are still learning in school. The remote learning provided will be equivalent in length to the core teaching that pupils would receive in school. The remote learning sent home will focus on our whole school approaches to the delivery of the curriculum, which is carefully sequenced.

We will use DfE approved platforms such as White Rose and Oak Academy – carefully selecting what pupils will do, based on what their peers are doing in class so that the learning experiences offered are appropriate and relevant.

We will:

• Minimise the disruption to pupils’ education and the delivery of the curriculum.

• Protect pupils from the risks associated with using devices connected to the internet.

• Ensure staff, parent, and pupil data remains secure and is not lost or misused.

• Ensure robust safeguarding measures continue to be in effect during the period of remote learning.

• Ensure all pupils have the provision they need to complete their work to the best of their ability, and to remain happy, healthy, and supported during periods of remote learning.

• Provide meals for pupils who are eligible for free school meals.

• Ensure that daily contact is made with the pupils by their class teacher.

• Ensure that all pupils have access to appropriate devices and have good connectivity at their homes. School will ensure support for any pupils where this is not the case to ensure that there are no digital barriers to learning for any pupils.

• SEN pupils and pupils with an EHCP with will receive additional support from the SENCO.
