Welcome to our Remote/Home Learning Page
During the current national lockdown school is only able to open to identified vulnerable pupils and children of critical workers (as identified by the Government). For pupils remaining at home we are legally required to provide access to remote learning resources. Children will access their learning through our preferred learning platform Tapestry (EYFS) and Seesaw (KS1+2). All pupils on roll have access to their learning platform. Our remote learning policy outlines how children will access their education remotely during this period.
The DfE have outlined that primary aged pupils, as a minimum, should have access to work that they would receive in school and should be expected to devote at least 3 hours per day in KS1 and 4 hours per day in KS2 to home learning. Where pupils are found not to be engaging with home learning we are required to work with parents to resolve any issues.
Should you experience any problems then please do not hesitate to contact the school office: 01282 865242 or the class teacher via their email.

Our Online Learning Platform
We have chosen Seesaw to enable teachers to set learning at home, mark it and comment or give help and support. Staff also receive work and messages back from children and parents via this platform.
