Our remote teaching is provided via Google Classroom (KS1/KS2). Through daily teaching videos, teachers follow a curriculum sequence that mirrors that which children would follow had they been in school. Teaching videos for each lesson provide frequent, clear explanations of new content. Teachers are available throughout the school day via Google classroom to answer questions and give further support if required.
Children are provided with access to online reading books which follow the same progression as those in school. Packs of "real" books are provided to children where required: these are changed regularly to ensure that no child is without reading material. Parents of younger, emerging readers send teachers weekly videos of heir child reading to enable teachers to continue to monitor their progress and offer support where required. Any child who does not have remote access will be provided with a school device to ensure that no child is left without support.
In addition to academic teaching, children have the opportunity to maintain a sense of community and belonging, through regular live assemblies and class time via zoom.
