Welcome to our school - full of happy, hard-working children and teachers. We want every child to participate fully, respect other people, be independent and determined in achieving excellence.
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 if 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.
This plan will be applied in the following instances:
1. An individual is self-isolating due to waiting for test results or because of a positive test within the household;
2. A whole bubble or cohort is self-isolating because of an outbreak of coronavirus Curriculum
3. The department for Education instructs the school to move to online learning as part of a national measure
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.
What should my child expect from immediate remote education in the first day or two of pupils being sent home?
Pupils will be directed to work on the school website that has been set for their Year group. This appears at the bottom of this webpage. Your Classteacher or the Headteacher will be in touch to help parents navigate to the website and to see how we can help in any way.
Remote Learning in the case of whole cohort isolation, resources will be uploaded to SeeSaw on the first day and priority children will have packs delivered and/or a laptop on loan from the school. This will provide teachers with a short time to prepare their remote learning resources.
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.
White Rose Maths resources are currently used for the Maths curriculum across the school. Children are very used to using these resources on a daily basis. TT Rockstars and Numberbots will also be used to support and the retention of number skills. Oak Academy lessons will be used as appropriate, especially for writing units of work.
For the wider curriculum, your Classteacher will either direct the child on a daily basis to the resources needed or will upload them onto SeeSaw or Tapestry.
How will we ensure that effective feedback is taking place?
Seasaw and Tapestry will support the school in offering true online learning with the opportunity for the children to communicate with their teacher. The assignment tool will be used for children to receive work before submitting the task back to the class teacher so that feedback can be given.
The SeeSaw home page will offer the chance for teachers to celebrate children’s work and maintain our school community.
For individuals isolating and waiting for a test, they will be directed to the school Homelearning page (https://www.littleeaton.derbyshire.sch.uk/white-rose-maths/).
The lessons, resources and links for the day will be updated regularly to ensure that they are in line with classroom lessons. The Class Teacher will review progress through Tapestry or SeeSaw.
Safeguarding/SEN/FSM The Designated Safeguarding Lead (Mr. Schumann) or Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead (Mrs. Gardiner) will ensure the appropriate agencies are notified and regular checks are made for any vulnerable children who are isolating. Mr. Schumann will ring any families whose children are not engaging with remote learning in order to offer support as needed. If any children are entitled to FSM, Mr. Schumann or Mrs. Carter will contact the family to offer food packages. Children who normally receive support from other agencies such as SSSEN, will continue to do so through SeeSaw.
