When remote schooling will be used 

We are pleased to share some information about our remote schooling arrangements with you.  We hope that you find the following information useful.
We would introduce remote schooling for the following reasons:
  • If severe weather means that it is not safe to open the school site.
  • If another lockdown is announced by the government.
  • If we are informed by the Department for Education (DfE) that we have to send a year group or class bubble home.
The following arrangements will apply:
  • We will write to you by Parentmail to inform you that we will be moving to remote schooling for your child.
  • We will aim to give you as much notice as possible.

Kindergarten and Juniors 

Our Kindergarten and Junior pupils will have Zoom lessons which will be delivered by the class teacher.  They will also have some work sent home by email to parents.  The work will be sent home the evening before so that parents have time to print any required resources.

Remote Schooling for Kindergarten Pupils explained

In Kindergarten remote schooling will take place via Zoom.  The class teacher will send home a link to the meeting room and a password to join the meeting.  On arrival you will be directed to the waiting room until the teacher is ready to start each session.  We are happy for the children to have their cameras and microphones on at the beginning of each session, the teacher will then mute the children when necessary to explain tasks without any background distractions.

Usual school timetable will be simplified to allow for a range of curriculum subjects, within a manageable home-schooling day. The Zoom sessions each day will take place at the following times:

9.15am Maths

11am English

1.30pm Other subject areas

3.00pm Summary of the day/ story

The teacher will introduce the lesson, demonstrate what the children are expected to do, answer any questions and then leave the children to complete the tasks.

Work completed can either be emailed back to the class teacher or kept for the teacher to see on return to school.

Remote Schooling for Senior School pupils explained 

Our senior pupils will follow their usual timetable through Microsoft Teams.  The lessons will begin at the same time as school lessons:
9:15am Lesson 1
10:15am Lesson 2
11:15am Break
11:35 Lesson 3
12:35 Lesson 4
1:30 Lunch
2:30 Lesson 5
The pupils will use their school email accounts to access Teams and will also be able to submit work via this platform.  It our expectation that all senior pupils will attend their Teams lessons and should be ready to take part in the Teams call at the start of the lesson. We also expect them to complete the work set to the best of their ability.
The following documents on the right of this page will provide further information for both parents and pupils.
