Remote Access


Remote education provision: information for parents

This information is intended to provide clarity and transparency to pupils and parents or carers about what to expect from remote education where national or local restrictions require entire cohorts (or bubbles) to remain at home.

For details of what to expect where individual pupils are self-isolating, please see the final section of this page.

The remote curriculum: what is taught to pupils at home

A pupil’s first day or two of being educated remotely might look different from our standard approach, while we take all necessary actions to prepare for a longer period of remote teaching.

Following the first few days of remote education, your child be taught broadly the same curriculum as they would if they were in school

We teach the same curriculum remotely as we do in school wherever possible and appropriate. However, we have needed to make some adaptations in some subjects.

Remote teaching and study time each day

We expect that remote education (including remote teaching and independent work) will take pupils broadly the following number of hours each day: 4


Accessing remote education

How will my child access any online remote education you are providing?

Log in details are to be found in the front of each child's planner.

Access to MS Teams and Doodle Maths

If my child does not have digital or online access at home, how will you support them to access remote education?

We recognise that some pupils may not have suitable online access at home. We take the following approaches to support those pupils to access remote education:

wha have a number of laptops and digital devices we are able to lend to pupils who do not have a device to access their work work at home.


How will my child be taught remotely?

We use a combination of the following approaches to teach pupils remotely:

live teaching (online lessons)

recorded teaching (e.g. Oak National Academy lessons, video/audio recordings made by teachers)

printed paper packs produced by teachers (e.g. workbooks, worksheets)

textbooks and reading books pupils have at home

commercially available websites supporting the teaching of specific subjects or areas, including video clips or sequences

long-term project work and/or Internet research activities (as per the schools full opening guidance, schools full opening guidance, schools are expected to avoid an over-reliance on these approaches)


Engagement and feedback

What are your expectations for my child’s engagement and the support that we as parents and carers should provide at home?

we expect pupils to log into their teams lessons and we expect parents to support this where possible by ensuring work is completed to a good standard


How will we work with me to help my child who needs additional support from adults at home to access remote education?

We recognise that some pupils, for example some pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), may not be able to access remote education without support from adults at home. We acknowledge the difficulties this may place on families, and we will work with parents and carers to support those pupils in the following ways:

The SENCO or support staff will regularly check in where necessary with children with SEN to support them in their learning.
