All schools are required to have a contingency plan for remote learning in the event of children needing to self isolate due to being tested for Covid-19 or us having to close a bubble at school.
There are three instances when remote learning will be needed:
1) An individual is self-isolating because of a positive test within the household (or awaiting the results of a test)
2) A group of children are self-isolating because of a case of coronavirus in the bubble;
3) A whole bubble or cohort is self-isolating because of an outbreak of coronavirus.
Stage 1: So that children can get going with work immediately, there are ‘Get Going’ packs of work for each year group. The work packs include basic skills work that are relevant at any stage of the year i.e. arithmetic, spelling, reading, writing and handwriting. These can be collected from the school office if a child has to go home or accessed via the school website if a child is already off school, e.g. waiting for a test result. Click here to access the 'Get Going' Packs.
Stage 2: If a child or group of children are off school for more than a day or two, further work will be set by their class teacher and resources will be emailed to parents and accessed via Google classroom*. This will include videos and tasks linked to the curriculum provision being offered to the children remaining at school. As far as is possible, children will be set tasks that match the learning taking place in school.
Stage 3: In the event of a whole class / year group of children needing to isolate at home, the school/teachers will email a weekly timetable of learning – this will consist of core subject lessons, some non-core subject lessons and a homework grid related to the current class topic. The lessons will be emailed or accessed via Google Classroom* as above.
If children are at home for stage 2 or 3, completed work should be uploaded to Google Classroom* or photographed and sent via the class email on a daily basis so that teachers can review the work completed and feedback can be given.
All children have their Wonde Log Ins inside their Home Learning Diaries. This is the way each child can access Google Classroom.
