Remote Learning Plan
We would like to confirm our arrangements for remote education this term.
If your child is ill (COVID or non COVID) and unable to attend school: as before, we will not send work home for your child to complete. If they are too ill to attend school, we want them to rest and recover at home so they can make as swift a return to school as possible.
If your child is self-isolating, not ill and waiting for the results of a COVID test: we will send work home on a daily basis reflecting the work the children in school are doing that day. Our capacity to do this will depend on the time we find out your child will not be in school that day. If we find out after teaching has begun, it may be difficult to send specific work home that day.
If your child's class has been sent home to self-isolate due to a positive COVID test in the class and your class teacher is not ill: we will move to our remote education plan which will involve teaching via Tapestry. Parents will need to ensure that their child can access up to three short on-line videos at some time each day to support their learning.
If your child's class has been sent home to self-isolate due to a positive COVID test in the class and your class teacher is ill: we will move to our remote learning plan and work will be provided via Tapestry but one teacher will be responsible for two classes so feedback may be limited.
A number of classes are trialling using Tapestry for homework and communication; please use this opportunity to familiarise yourself with the system so that if we need to go to remote teaching, you are ready to go!
There is a document section on Tapestry which will soon have a number of activities that focus on core skills such as tricky words, handwriting and number facts to supplement the daily input from class teachers.
