In the uncertain times that we are currently living in, it is important that we are fully prepared for the possibility that we may have to have a full or partial closure of school depending on the local Covid-19 situation.
There will also be instances where individual children will be self-isolating due to coming into contact with a positive case of Covid 19.
As a school we are producing detailed plans for remote education so that children will have access to a high quality education at home. As we put these plans together they will be put onto this page.
The main source of communication between the teacher and home when remote education is taking place is Class Dojo. Please ensure that you are able to access your child's Class Dojo account and let their teacher know if you are unable to access it.

MyON is an online reading programme and all of our KS2 children have a login for it. This gives them access to around 5000 e-books which they can read and then take an Accelerated Reader quiz for after reading the book.
All children from Year 2 to Year 6 have a logon for Times Tables Rockstars. This is a fantastic website that supports children in learning their times tables.
Once your child has logged in they should play in Garage mode. This has an automatic training mode which starts with easy times tables and as the children get them correct it adds in more and more times tables. This means that it is pitched at the right level for the children so they're able to practise getting quicker at tables that they know rather than struggling over many that they don't know.
Purple Mash is an online portal containing many activities for a full range of subjects. Each child has their own login and teachers can set tasks for the children. When children complete a task on Purple Mash they can submit it to their teacher who can comment on it.
White Rose Maths
We follow White Rose Maths in school and they are producing many home learning materials that run alongside the scheme that we are following.
If remote learning is required the teacher will let you know which lesson you'd need to look at with your child.
Resources can be found at White Rose Maths Home Learning
We follow Letters and Sounds for teaching phonics in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1. Videos have been produced that teach Letters and Sounds phonics lessons. In the event of remote learning being required the teacher will let you know which video your child should access. Videos can be accessed here: Letters and Sounds Videos
Oak National Academy has been set up to produce a full curriculum with linked videos that can be used at home. In the event of remote education being required teachers will provide you with links to the relevant Oak Academy lessons to use with your children that match to the curriculum being taught in school.
