Attendance is mandatory for all pupils of compulsory school age. However, Holy Trinity Church of England Primary School will provide remote learning to pupils in circumstances when in-person attendance is either not possible or contrary to government guidance. This could 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
- Remote education will be activated when there is a national or local lockdown because of government guidance or a bubble closure. If an individual or a small number of pupils need to self-isolate, they will be able to access work remotely.
Remote Learning Implementation
Our primary platform for conducting online and remote learning is Google Classroom.Each child has been provided with their unique user login details and a Google Classroom guide has been sent to all parents. Class timetables outlining sessions for the day and week are uploaded onto each Google Classroom. Three live sessions will be conducted each day; one English, one Mathematics, and one foundation subject. Frequent, clear explanations of new content will be given by the teacher
We expect that remote education (including remote teaching and independent work) will take KS1 pupils broadly 4.5 hours and 5.5 hours for Key Stage 2 per day.
- All pupils are required to attend all live lessons. Please refer to the class timetable.
- All pupils are required to complete all set tasks, assignments, and homework.
- Contact the teacher on the class’ learning email address, for support and resolution of queries.
Each day, unless requested otherwise, a Teaching Assistant will telephone you to check on your child’s progress. This is an opportune moment to discuss progress, relay concerns and seek clarification. Class teachers will email or telephone parents to discuss concerns regarding academic progress, engagement, and or behaviour.
In order to assess each pupil’s progress, feedback will take many forms and will not always mean extensive written comments for individual children. Examples of feedback methods are whole-class feedback, quizzes marked automatically via digital platforms, electronic stickers, and emails.
Supporting Pupils with SEND
We recognize that some pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), may not be able to access remote education without support from adults at home. At Holy Trinity our SEND Team will schedule meetings via Zoom and Google Meet to deliver targeted interventions, small group support, pre-teaching, phonics and speech and language therapies.
The Aletheia Academies Trust has provided lots of extra home learning for you to use including languages, PE and activities.
Remote Education for Children Self-Isolating
All pupils not in school because they are self-isolating will be directed to Oak National Academy. Oak National Academy “classroom lessons are around an hour-long. They’re delivered by a teacher, with a prerecorded video as well as quizzes, worksheets and creative activities. It’s all easy to use, there’s no login or password, you can access lessons on nearly any device.
