Principles of Remote Learning
DfE have provided guidance for full opening of schools that includes a requirement ‘Where a class, group or small number of pupils need to self-isolate, or there is a local lockdown requiring pupils to remain at home, we expect schools to have the capacity to offer immediate remote education.’
- The principles::
- Ensure consistency in the approach to remote learning across the school to ensure pupils have access quality learning experiences.
- Set out expectations and guidance for all members of the school with regards to remote learning.
- Link closely to the work the child would have completed in class, and follow the class’ curriculum overview.
- Support effective communication processes between the school and families, facilitating regular contact.
- During a class/ bubble or whole school lockdown there needs to be daily contact to keep learning on track for pupils.
- Identified pieces of work need to be sent in for the teacher to review.
This policy is applicable for remote learning due to:
- An individual isolating while waiting for a test result: The rest of their school bubble are attending school and being taught as normal.
- An Individual isolating for 4-10 days due to a positive Covid result within their family: The rest of their school bubble are attending school and being taught as normal.
- Teacher isolation due to a positive Covid result (but teacher is well): Please also refer to the CLT COVID-19 HR Business continuity COVID-19 related employee absence guidance.
- Partial school closure where either a class bubble must isolate or the school is only open to vulnerable pupils and those of confirmed critical worker parents.
