Teaching & Learning
In this section of the website you will find out more information about the curriculum the children explore.
We believe that learning is an enjoyable, lifelong process through which everyone can achieve their potential and exceed their expectations. We will challenge and support our pupils to do their very best by providing an extensive range of learning experiences beyond the statutory requirement.
Remote learning Plan for periods of isolation/lock down Spring 2021:
You may be aware that the Government from 22nd October have placed a legal duty on schools to provide remote learning should children need to self isolate, or should we need to lock down again and work from home. With this in mind and with the results of the survey we did with yourselves regarding your thoughts on the previous lock down experience, we have made a remote learning plan.
We want you to understand that a task like this in fraught with difficulty. No one plan will ever suit everyone’s personal circumstances and preferences. Some parents will want a very prescriptive plan and others will want a more flexible one. We also are very conscience that our age group of children means they do not learn independently, sat in front of a computer all day. They will need adult support to access the learning, and it can’t be all computer learning, there needs to be play and exercise away from devices. We also understand for busy parents, working from home, looking after little ones, that this is not always going to be possible for you to facilitate the learning with your children. Our plan, is therefore designed, to be used as a guideline to support you to continue your child’s learning in the event of them being off school for a short or extended period. We will do our best to provide a programme of learning and will work with families to adapt the plan to suit your needs as the situation arises and evolves.
From the feedback we received in the survey, quite a few parents wanted more live contact with teachers. With this in mind we are undertaking some training for staff to safely use google classroom that may facilitate face to face contact and we will continue to use the learning zones on the website and class dojo to video teacher inputs. We will continue to update you as we learn more.
Please have a look at our plan in preparation for we need to put it in place. Again, please remember it is a guide, to be used flexibly and it will adapt and change as we all learn more.
Many thanks for your ongoing support with keeping your children’s education going in these challenging times.
