In the event of a full school closure that means students have to be taught remotely, the school is committed to providing continuity of education.
Where a class, group or small number of students needs to self-isolate for a short period of time, or there is a local lockdown requiring some or all students to remain at home for a longer period, we are ready to offer immediate remote education.
- Remote education will also need to be an ongoing component in the delivery of the school curriculum for some individual students, for example those with complex health needs.
- Remote education, will be of high quality and aligned as closely as possible with in-school provision and curriculum content. Students will access and be taught our intended curriculum.
- If students need to shield or isolate they will join their normal lessons using Microsoft Teams.
- However, in some circumstances, children will be set work on Class Dojo or through Seesaw. If students are set work on Class Dojo or through Seesaw, staff will attach the lesson PowerPoint, clear instructions and tasks for the students to complete. All work will be in line with the school curriculum.
- In the event of a full school closure, most children will have 4 x 30 minute lessons of meaningful and challenging lessons each day and will follow their in school timetable.
- Seesaw and Microsoft Teams will be used consistently across the school with all year groups to deliver live lessons, set assignments, allow interaction between teachers and students, and provide opportunities for assessment and feedback.
- Staff, students, and parents will receive training in the use of Seesaw.
- Laptops will be loaned to children who do not have suitable equipment outside of school.
