Update on Remote Learning  

From September 2021, following government guidelines, we will be providing remote learning for those children who are absent from school due to reasons linking to COVID-19.

High quality remote learning will be provided on the following learning platforms. For which all pupils have their log in. If these have been misplaced, please contact the school office.

EYFS- Tapestry
KS1- DB Primary
KS2- Google Classroom

The remote education will be equivalent in length of time to the core teaching that pupils would receive in school; this includes time for the teaching, and completion of tasks. As a minimum, we will provide:

·         Key Stage 1- 3 hours daily
·         Key Stage 2- 4 hours daily

We will ensure:

Ø  Lessons link to the year group’s curriculum
Ø  There will be clarity for pupils and parents/carers
Ø  That all pupils will have access to a laptop to allow children to access their learning
Ø  Teaching and learning activities will take in to consideration any special educational needs

We will monitor whether pupils are engaging with the remote learning, and work with families to identify solutions where engagement is a concern. If the cause for concern continues, we will make a welfare visit to your home. Staff recognise that both supporting as an adult, and completing work as a pupil, can be a challenge and will consider providing printed resources to overcome any barriers presented by the digital access.

If your child is in receipt of a free school meal, we will be providing vouchers to ensure that they are still able to receive this.

Parent Teacher Consultations

We plan that future Parent Teacher Consultation meetings will take place through a mixture of face to face appointments and video call.  Appointments can be booked through the on-line booking system: https://oakview.parentseveningsystem.co.uk/
