Although the pandemic has brought with it many challenges, we are committed to providing children with access to learning in the event of isolation or where school attendance has been restricted. Our Blended/Remote Learning Policy outlines what this looks like at Brickhill Primary School but here is a brief summary.
In the event of individual isolation, bubble closure or reduced attendance, the DfE have set expectations that children in KS1 should work remotely for 3 hours a day on average (with less for younger children) and KS2 children should work remotely for 4 hours a day.
We will set learning to be completed at home that is in line with our current curriculum, where our aim is that whatever is learnt in school will be learnt by those who are at home. This will be achieved through the use of Live Lessons, where we would typically introduce the learning and provide initial feedback, or through the use of pre-recorded videos created by our staff. We will also make use of government approved online resources such as National Oak Academy and White Rose Maths, particularly in the event of staff shortage due to the pandemic.
We will maintain communication through the use of our class emails and also using the online platform, Class Dojo. Class Dojo will also be used to provide feedback for the children’s learning which has been uploaded to their profile.
If you have any questions or you would like support with your child’s learning at home during this challenging time, then please contact your class teacher or Mr Wiltshire who is overseeing blended/remote learning.
