Remote Education Provision: Information for Parents
This information is intended to provide clarity and transparency to pupils and parents or carers about what to expect from remote education. It also explains what happens if a child is not able to attend school in exceptional circumstances. 

Supporting Children with Health Needs who Cannot Attend School Policy

Remote teaching and study time each day

How long can I expect work set by the school to take my child each day?
We expect that remote education (including remote teaching and independent work) will take pupils broadly the following number of hours each day.
Primary school aged pupils:

 Key Stage 1 : 3 hours a day on average across the cohort, with less for younger children below 7 years

  • Key Stage 2 : 4 hours a day. The amount of work completed will depend on the speed and depth with which tasks are completed by pupils. Younger pupils will need more discussion and parental input but will complete shorter tasks.
  • Pupils in EYFS will be learning through play and therefore, the hours of learning will be less easy to quantify.

Accessing remote education

How will my child access any remote online education you are providing?

If your child does not have digital or online access at home, how will you support them to access remote education?
We recognise that some pupils may not have suitable online access at home. We take the following approaches to support those pupils to access remote education:

  • The school has a number of laptops, which are ready to be loaned to pupils.  Please contact the school if this applies. Please note there are protocols for the use of these laptops at home which parents will be asked to agree and sign.
  • In the event of disruption to face-to-face education, the school will be able to help you access broadband.

Engagement and Feedback

We maintain regular contact to support your family during periods of remote learning. This is usually through the class teacher. Sometimes other staff, including the SENCo provide help too.
