In order to ensure that learning is continued, irrespective of lockdown and self-isolation, Wooden Hill Primary School has developed a comprehensive remote learning plan. This plan offers remote learning opportunities whilst also acknowledging that some households have limited access to devices and may require hard-copies of work and resources.
This plan will be applied in the following instances:
- An individual is self-isolating because of a positive test within the household;
- A group of children are self-isolating because of a case of coronavirus in the bubble;
- A whole bubble or cohort is self-isolating because of an outbreak of coronavirus.
The plan complies with the expectations and principles outlined in the DFE document Guidance for Full Opening of Schools and is available below.
A set of policy guidelines for remote learning during lockdown 3 is also available below which clearly sets out the expectations for children, parents and teachers.
In preparation for home-learning, parents and children all received logins and passwords for the following platforms during the autumn term. These details have been stuck into reading record books:
- Google Classroom
- Spelling Shed
- TT Rockstars/Numbots
- Read Theory (Y5/6)
- Teach Your Monster To Read (R-Y2)
In the event of any form of isolation and loss of learning caused by Coronavirus, parents must understand that engagement in home learning is compulsory, as is the expectation that wooden Hill Primary School makes that provision available and accessible to all. However, if children themselves are too ill to attend then they should not be expected to engage in home learning.
