What are your expectations for my child’s engagement and the support that we as parents and carers should provide at home?
Pupils should access daily activities assigned to them by their class teacher, including a phonics lesson, English lesson, mathematics lesson and foundation subject lesson. In addition to this, pupils can access additional extension activities as well as usual term-time homework activities such as home reading books, Mathletics and spelling shed.
Where possible, parents and carers should sit with children to watch the instructional videos or presentations linked to activities assigned to them by class teachers to clarify details. Initially, some pupils may need support in applying this knowledge to the task at hand. Parents and carers should continue to read to and with their children on a daily basis.
How will you check whether my child is engaging with their work and how will I be informed if there are concerns?
Teachers will be completing weekly wellbeing phone calls in which they will enquire about the pupils’ engagement with remote learning and address any concerns
Dedicated contact emails are set up whereby parents can contact the pupils’ class teacher to raise concerns and seek support
How will you assess my child’s work and progress?
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.
Parents are free to submit pupils’ work to their class teacher via the dedicated contact email addresses provided. In addition to this, parents can share pupils’ work via the school’s Twitter page. Pupils are also invited to complete a weekly quiz via an online platform which is designed to assess their understanding of learning for that week across all subjects covered.
A member of staff is available on a daily basis to provide support and feedback on the work completed by pupils.
