The policy below sets out the expectations and processes for how the school will continue to educate and provide pastoral support to pupils who are either self-isolating individually or as part of a bubble/phase closure.
The following strategies will be used to support children and enable remote learning:
· Daily activities will be posted on Class Dojo. The tasks set by staff will allow children regular opportunities to complete literacy, maths, topic, mindfulness and PE activities. Children in EYFS and KS1 will also receive phonics lessons. Children will complete the activities in their Class Dojo books, uploading photos of their completed work onto the learning platform. Staff will offer regular feedback to children about the work that they upload.
· Whole class live Zoom sessions will take place. These live sessions will allow children to discuss the work that has been set by their teachers, play some educational games with their classmates and most importantly it will maintain a sense of classroom community during the period of remote learning.
· Phone calls home will be made every week to check on the wellbeing of the families and to ensure that children are able to access the remote learning.
Online Health and Safety:
Remote learning and increased time at home will mean an increase in screen time for many pupils. We encourage parents/carers to follow the ’10 top tips’ framework which provides practical steps to support a healthy and balanced digital diet.
