Remote education provision: information for parents of children at Little Harrowden Primary School.
This information is intended to provide clarity and transparency to pupils and parents or carers about what to expect from remote education if local restrictions require entire cohorts or individuals to remain at home.
The remote curriculum: what is taught to pupils at home
The learning for the children in Years 1 - 6 will be sent via Seesaw daily, ready for the school day. All resources will be available on Seesaw also. Reception children will be directed to Evidence Me.
Where possible, children will be following the same curriculum as they would be doing in school with adaptations where necessary to aid delivery and expectations to ensure the learning is progressive.
We expect that remote education (including remote teaching and independent work) will take pupils broadly the following number of hours each day:
- KS1 - 3 hours per day
- KS2 – 4 hours per day
We recognise that some pupils may not have suitable online access at home. We have a small allocation of laptops that can be loaned to children to support remote learning, please speak to the Office Staff to discuss this further.
If there is no pupil engagement on either Seesaw, through email or the submission of tasks for three consecutive days parents will be contacted by the class teacher
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:
- Marking will be inline with that of the class and include self-assessment opportunities
- Photographic/scanned evidence including additional work children have completed
- Weekly evaluations
Children with additional needs
We recognise that some pupils, for example some pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), 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 pupils in the following ways:
- Adapted work
- Additional 1:1 sessions with support staff
- Shorter tasks adapted to suit individuals
