The Local Authority have advised primary schools to move to remote learning for all pupils from 4th January.

Arrangements for remote learning will be put in place from Tuesday 5th January as detailed in the school’s Remote Learning Policy 

Further information about this will be shared with parents and carers on Monday 4th January and can be viewed below


Our Remote Learning Policy  outlines what will happen should children and Staff need to work remotely and addresses the key concerns associated with remote working, such as online safety, access to educational resources, data protection, and safeguarding.

It aims to ensure :

  • minimised disruption to pupils’ education and the delivery of the curriculum.
  • provision is in place so that all pupils have access to high quality learning resources.
  • protection of pupils from the risks associated with using devices connected to the internet.
  • that staff, parent, and pupil data remains secure and is not lost or misused.
  • robust safeguarding measures continue to be in effect during the period of remote learning.
  •  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.

Remote LEarning 2020-2021

It is the role and responsibility of the School to have capacity to offer immediate remote education and give access to high quality remote education resources where a class or Year Group need to self-isolate, or there is a local lockdown requiring all pupils to remain at home; the school has selected online tools that will be consistently used across Year Groups in order to allow interaction, assessment and feedback when working remotely.  These are as follows:

The School will provide printed resources and workbooks, for pupils who do not have suitable online access at home. 

When teaching pupils remotely, we undertake to:

  • set assignments so that pupils have meaningful and ambitious work each day in a number of different subjects
  • teach a well-sequenced curriculum so that knowledge and skills are built incrementally, with a good level of clarity about what is intended to be taught and practised in each subject
  • provide frequent, clear explanations of new content through high quality curriculum resources and/or videos or webinars
  • gauge how well pupils are progressing through the curriculum, using questions and other suitable tasks with a clear expectation on how regularly work will be checked
  • Adjust the pace or difficulty of what is being taught in response to questions or assessments, including, where necessary, revising material or simplifying explanations to ensure pupils’ understanding.
  • plan a programme that is of equivalent length to the core teaching pupils would receive in school, ideally including daily contact with teachers 

The School may provide printed resources and workbooks on request, for pupils who do not have suitable online access at home.
