Remote Learning

In September 2020, all our classes returned to full-time education following the Covid-19 closure in March. Although we hope that the majority of our children will now have an uninterrupted experience, there is the possibility that an individual child, a class bubble, or indeed the whole school, will need to self-isolate for a period of time. We have therefore put in place a plan for remote learning so that all children can continue with their education. This meets the expectations set out in the DfE guidance ‘Remote Education Support’

If a child does not have access to a computer/laptop and/or the internet, the school will do all it can to support children and will provide paper packs of learning. Parents will be reminded to make the school aware of any barriers to accessing remote learning. Paper copies will still be available.

 

Update

On 4th January 2021 it was announced by the Prime Minister that primary schools will close as of Tuesday 5th January apart from for Key Worker and Vulnerable Children. This is part of the National Lockdown. More information regarding the National Lockdown can be found here.

 

Connecting to Class Dojo and uploading work

Due to the school being closed to majority of children, the school and Ofsted are expecting all children to logon and complete the work that is set on the website below. As a school we use ClassDojo to track and assess children’s progress of their remote education.

If as a parent, you are struggling to connect yourselves to ClassDojo, below is a video showing you how to set up your ClassDojo account, connect your child and how to upload work to the child’s portfolio.
