Remote Learning


A priority of our Remote Provision is to ensure children engage in their learning and class teacher. Therefore, each class will offer a minimum of 5 live Microsoft teams sessions per week. Aside from the learning opportunities outlined above, this is an opportunity for teachers to monitor attendance and engagement, so we encourage parents to prioritise these meets. As a leadership team, this will be monitored on a weekly basis with the following steps in place should there be a lack of engagement.

Step 1 Class teacher to attempt contact via email, Microsoft teams or phone

Step 2 Referred to the phase lead to make contact

Step 3 Referred to school attendance officer to make contact 

Step 4 Referred to educational welfare officer



We understand the vital role that feedback plays in developing a child's learning and will endeavour to ensure that it remains - as much as possible -in line with our marking and feedback policy.

The amount of feedback and marking delivered will depend upon a child's needs and the judgement of the class teacher.

Feedback on the pupils' learning will be given either verbally (via live video) written (either digital or printed and uploaded)



All pupils with SEND have the same access to remote learning provided by school. However, depending on the needs of each individual pupil, this may have to be adapted and reasonable adjustments made.

These adaptations may be as follows:

- Highly differentiated work set in order to meet a pupil`s individual needs.

- Targets continue to be set on ISPs ( individual support plans) but adapted so that they are achievable if learning at home.

- Resources provided in order to facilitate the learning e.g. overlays, pencil grips, speech and language resources, sloping desk, spelling support, handwriting guides.

All annual reviews will take place as usual remotely. Assessments by the educational psychology service continue to take place following the guidelines set out by the Local Authority.

Advice from SENDCo and referrals continue to remain and access to outside agencies continue in line with the agencies' policy.   

Any concerns can be sent to the SENDCo by emailing the class teacher or admin. 


Help with loan devices 

Devices are on loan for some families so that they can access digital home learning - if you would like for more information on this, contact the main reception at             

If you have any problems with the internet connection or availability, we can provide paper copies of learning to children and give out workbooks.

Please contact school on 01803 853347 for advice. Contact will be made via email or phone call to drop off work or collect work in this instance.
