Remote Curriculum Strategy
The remote curriculum: what is taught to pupils at home
Will my child be taught broadly the same curriculum as they would if they were in school?
Yes. They will be working towards their individual learning intentions which link towards EHCP outcomes.
Accessing remote education
How will my child access any online remote education you are providing?
Activities will be sent via the Evidence for Learning website. You should log on each day to find videos and activities from your child’s teacher. For some students there may also be live sessions via Zoom. Your child’s teacher will talk to you about this.
If my child does not have digital or online access at home, how will you support them to access remote education?
We recognise that some students may not have suitable online access at home. We take the following approaches to support those students:
Practical activities will be sent home each week – this may be a pack being delivered to the house.
Paper based work will be sent home where appropriate
Where families do not have access to an iPad we can lend your child an iPad so that they can access online activities. Please discuss this with the class teacher.
How will my child be taught remotely?
We use a combination of the following approaches to teach students remotely:
- Video tutorials and activities from teachers and members of the team
- Follow on activities
- Links to specific websites
- Live lessons via Zoom
- Practical activities to carry out around the house.
Engagement and feedback
What are your expectations for my child’s engagement and the support that we as parents and carers should provide at home?
We really love to see what our students are doing at home and expect families to support their child with at least one activity and put evidence for this on the Evidence for Learning website each day. The teacher will comment on work done.
How will you check whether my child is engaging with their work and how will I be informed if there are concerns?
We will be making daily checks on the Evidence for Learning platform to see if any work has been completed and to give feedback on it. If no work has been put on after 3 days the class teacher will contact you to see if they can support you with ways to engage in remote learning.
How will you assess my child’s work and progress?
Comments will be made on any work sent in and selected work will be used as evidence to add to your child’s progress file.
We know that our students often struggle to generalise skills so it is very helpful if we see them completing activities where they meet learning intentions at home.
Additional support for pupils with particular needs
How will you work with me to help my child who needs additional support from adults at home to access remote education?
We recognise that most of our students may not be able to access remote education without support from adults at home.
We acknowledge the difficulties this may place on families, and we will work with parents and carers to support those students in the following ways:
Regular contact with families around the support they need
Personalised agreements around expectations
Tailored provision to suit individual needs
