Stanley Grove Primary Academy is committed to pupil learning, whether in the classroom or at home. Our Remote Learning Plan outlines the remote learning opportunities provided to pupils. It can be accessed via the ‘downloads’ button above.
Remote Learning will be applied in the following instances:
- A child (and their siblings if they are also attending Stanley Grove Primary Academy) is absent because they, or a member of their household, are awaiting test results and the household is required to self-isolate. The rest of their school bubble are attending school and being taught as normal.
- A child’s whole bubble is not permitted to attend school because they, or another member of their bubble, have tested positive for Covid-19.
Resources to deliver this Remote Education Plan include:
- Online platform (Class Dojo)
- Use of recorded instructional videos
- Phone calls home
- Printed learning packs
- Physical materials such as story books and writing tools
- Use of BBC Bitesize, Oak Academy, Times table Rockstars, Maths No Problem, Pathways to Write, Literacy/Maths Shed etc
Due to the limited digital access of many pupils, we are not providing live teaching of lessons. Where pupils are accessing remote learning through an online platform, activities that require an online presence are limited. Most learning can be conducted offline and then posted online for feedback.
Physical work packs are provided on request for families who have limited access to a device or the internet. They include basic skills work that would be relevant at any stage of the year e.g. arithmetic, spelling, handwriting, reading books along with current units from Maths No Problem and foundation subjects. An exercise book and age appropriate writing implements will also be sent home.
Teachers will set appropriate work in-line with our curriculum. Activities will be uploaded daily. In EYFS, a range of activities that cover the 7 areas of learning will be provided. In KS2, Maths, Writing and Reading tasks will be provided along with Foundation/Science work that replicates lessons delivered on site. In KS1, Phonics will also be provided daily. (See Appendix 5 for further teacher guidance on reading and phonics)
Home and School Partnership
Stanley Grove Primary Academy is committed to working in close partnership with families and recognises that remote learning will look different for different families. We believe that children benefit from routine and we will recommend to our parents and carers that each ‘school day’ maintains a good structure. We also encourage parents/carers to support their children’s work, including finding an appropriate place to work and, to the best of their ability, support their children with their learning, encouraging them to work with good levels of concentration.
For further support, including tutorial videos, please see our page ‘Supporting Your Child’s Learning’ under the ‘Parents and Carers’ menu.
Children are prepared for remote learning through Class Dojo workshops held during the first weeks of term. Log-in details are shared with parents/carers. Video tutorials are also available to support pupils and parents. Where possible, children are shown this again before beginning a period of isolation. Children will remain in contact with their Teacher through Class Dojo. If physical work packs are being used, teachers will remain in contact by telephone. Pupils, parents/carers and staff can use the message facility to share information and give feedback. The Class Story page enables teachers to celebrate children’s work and maintain a sense of community during periods of separation.
Every effort will be made by staff to ensure that work is set promptly. Should accessing work be an issue, parents/carers should contact school for support.
Pupils will be expected to complete all work set. If work is incomplete, staff will message on Class Dojo. If work remains incomplete, they will follow up with a phone call.
Children are taught how to stay safe online as part of both our Computing and Personal Development curriculum.
Regular reminders are posted on Class Dojo by our Computing Lead Teacher.
