Remote Learning


We place great value on independent work completed out of school. It develops good habits
and prepares children for the next stages of their education and the workplace. We also
recognise that children work very hard during their time in school and that everybody needs to
relax at the end of a busy day. It is not our intention to overburden children with additional

Scenarios Where Remote Education Should Be Provided

Attendance is mandatory for all pupils of compulsory school age. Schools should consider providing remote education to pupils in circumstances when in-person attendance is either not possible or contrary to government guidance.

This might include:

  • Occasions when school leaders decide that it is not possible for their setting to open safely, or that opening would contradict guidance from local or central government.
  • Occasions when individual pupils, for a limited duration, are unable to physically attend their school but are able to continue learning, for example pupils with an infectious illness.

In these circumstances pupils should have access to remote education as soon as reasonably practicable, though in proportion to the length of absence and disruption to their learning.

Remote Learning Expectations

All children will be expected to engage in any remote learning set for them. Teachers will monitor
children’s engagement in remote learning.

Teachers will not expect children who are unwell to engage in remote learning. Teachers will share work daily using Zoom, SeeSaw for Years 1 – 6, and Google Classroom for Years 5-6. This will include tasks to be carried out; as well as details of where to find resources and how to submit work. Expectations around TTRockstars and Reading will remain the same. Children alongside their parent(s) / Carer(s), agree to online learning user agreement.

Remote Learning Content
At Christ Church CE, Lewis Street and Lark Hill Primary School, our Remote Learning offer will enable children to continue to master the skills and knowledge set out in the curriculum for their year group and/or stage of learning. Teachers will provide the following:
• Daily Maths tasks.
• Daily English tasks – Reading and/or Phonics; and/or Writing including Spelling.
• One other curriculum area per day, with PE being taught live at least once a week.
(Encourage physical activity – PE; yoga; dance or Joe Wicks etc…)

Contact with teachers
Teachers will ensure that they are in regular contact with all children during any period of remote
learning. Where work is submitted, feedback will be given daily. This maybe written and/or verbal.
There will be a minimum of one individual telephone call to each family during every two-week

Please find below information about remote learning at our school if  your child should need to access this from home.
