Remote (Home) Education

If your child has to stay at home & self-isolate, or there's wider school closures, there's plenty of support available.

If your child is fit and well, we recommend they continue learning at home. Your child will be provided with either a) a pack of work or b) tasks set on ClassDojo - we'll ask which you'd prefer, but we recommended using ClassDojo if you can.  We can also access a supply of electronic devices to support your child's learning at home, if they haven't got access to any devices at home - we'll ask if you need any devices, but let us know if you're in need. 

We recommend that children do 1 writing activity, 1 maths activity, 1 reading activity and one wider curriculum activity every day. We also recommend they read every day and practice phonics, practice their times tables on TT Rockstars and their spelling on Spelling Shed. 

Our expectation is that we are sent at least one image of your child working at home each week and that work is added to their portfolio every day. We love to see what your children have been getting up to! 

Please see our 'Remote Learning Provision - Information for Parents & Carers' document at the bottom of this page for full details about what you can expect for your child(ren).

Do not worry about trying to keep a full routine for your child like they had at school. But children will feel more comfortable and learn better with a routine to the day, even if this is tricky.

Below are resources and links, but whatever you do, try to  to make sure that your children:

• get up and go to bed at the same time each day
• have regular meal times
• have regular breaks
• make time to be active
• manage their screen time
