This page has been created to support parents in the unfortunate event that your child needs to self-isolate or there has been a whole school closure.
In this situation, your child will still be expected to complete their classwork remotely (meaning at home).
Where do I find my child's home learning?
If your child's whole class has to isolate because their bubble has needed to close due to a positive case in the class or there has been a whole school closure, your class teacher will upload work daily on your class page...
If your child is having to isolate because of symptoms within your household, your child's class teacher will email work through to you weekly.
What should a typical school day look like at home?
Your class teacher will upload work daily which mirrors exactly what your child should have been learning in class that day so you shouldn't need to worry about this. At Barden we will continue to teach the same curriculum remotely as we do in school.
However, here is an example timetable to show you what a typical day of home learning might look like...
9:00 - 9:15 - Handwriting Practice
9:15-10:15 - English Lesson
10:15-10:30 - Break (get active/get moving)
10:30-11:00 - Reading
11:00-1200 - Maths Lesson
12:00 -13:00 - Lunch Time (eat and have fun together)
13:00-14:00 - PE
14:00-15:00 - Topic
(Please remember this is just an example and this may be different depending upon the age/needs of your child and the work set by the class teacher)
We expect that remote education (including remote teaching and independent work) will take pupils broadly the following number of hours each day:
Key Stage 1 - 3 hours
Key Stage 2 - 4 hours
How will my child be taught remotely during a whole school closure?
We use a combination of the following approaches to teach pupils remotely:
Online tools for EYFS KS1 KS2 – Work set on each class page
Use of Recorded video (or Live Video if used) for key lessons within the school day.
How will you assess my child's work and progress?
Feedback can take many forms and may not always mean extensive written comments for individual children. For example, whole-class feedback or quizzes marked automatically via digital platforms are also valid and effective methods, amongst many others. Our approach to feeding back on pupil work is as follows:
- When photos of work are emailed through to the teacher, the teacher will provide feedback in the form of a written reply or a phone call.
Who can I contact for support with remote learning?
By now you should have given your email address to the school office. All class teachers have these and they will maintain contact with you through email.
If you want to speak to a teacher over the phone, just call the school office and they will be able to arrange this.
If not, you can also fill out the contact form below...
Who is the designated Remote Learning Lead?
Our designated Remote Learning Lead is Mr Cooper (Deputy Headteacher).
Please tell us your child's name and which class they are in and what you need support with. A member of school staff will get back to you as soon as possible.
