Remote Learning Provision 2020/2021
This document will tell you what you can expect from Peak Dale Primary School should your child/family be required to self-isolate due to Covid-19. It will ensure consistency in our remote learning provision for those children who are unable to attend school due to Covid-19 but are well enough to learn.
Who is this provision for?
In line with Government guidance, children, staff and their families should self-isolate if they display any of the following symptoms
A continuous, dry cough
A high temperature above 37.8 ˚c
A loss of, or change to, their sense of smell or taste
Or they have
had a positive result from a test or
been contacted by Test and Trace and asked to isolate.
Remote learning for children who are not able to attend school due to Covid-19.
Peak Dale Primary school will provide remote education to all children who are unable to attend school due to Covid-19 and there is an expectation from both school and the Government that the work set will be completed by those children well enough to do so. Remote learning will mirror the learning that is taking place in the classroom so that all our children are given every opportunity to engage with learning and so that no-one need fall behind. Although there has been much disruption to children’s education, we are totally committed to ensuring that all our children continue to receive high quality education should the need for remote learning arise.
We are fully aware that these are exceptional times and that every family situation is unique. We realise that some parents/carers may be trying to work from home whilst self-isolating so access to technology as a family may be limited and that parents/carers may have more than one child trying to access technology for their remote learning and may need to prioritise. We have tried to keep this in mind whilst planning our remote learning provision. Our approach includes both online and paper-based resources some of which we are using in school so the children will be familiar with the layout and how to use the resources. We have used research from the Educational Endowment Foundation as a basis for our approach to remote learning.
Depending on the age and developmental stage of your child, we will aim to set between three to four hours of remote learning each day. This will include:
Spelling or phonics
A topic-based activity.
We will be using the following platforms to enhance our remote learning:
Oxford Owl e-library
White Rose Maths
Oak National Academy.
Accessing Remote Learning
Child or family member has Covid-19 symptoms and are awaiting a test and result.
On Day 1 of absence your child/children’s home learning will be emailed out to you.
Alternatively this can be accessed via the links below.
Class 1 and 2 will email out enough work to provide three days of remote learning. Class 3 will have their learning emailed each night.
Child is required to self-isolate for 14 days due to a positive Covid-19 result within their family, have been contacted by Track and Trace or the child’s bubble at school is isolating for 14 days.
On Day 1 as above, you will then be emailed out work to complete every few days which mirrors the objectives taught in class for the period of your isolation.
Please keep in contact by email to let us know how the children are getting on with their learning. You can take photos of their work and email it to the class teacher. Teachers will aim to give feedback to those learning remotely as often as is possible but a minimum of twice a week.
All remote learning activities can be completed in your child’s homework book.
