Saviour CE Remote learning offer

 

As we have returned to school there may be a time when your child has to self-isolate either individually or as part of their ‘bubble’.

To ensure that your child continues with their learning, we have established the use of online learning platforms and the following remote plan of education.

Additional guidance, suggested timetable of work and useful websites are on your child’s year group class page.

All login details for online learning platforms are in your child’s yellow home book. If you are having difficulties accessing these sites, please inform the school office at admin@saviour.manchester.sch.uk

 

Tapestry: This will be used by EYFS and such activities and communication with teachers are linked to Development Matters and the Early Learning Goals. Parents can upload work and communicate with their child’s class teacher.

Times Tables Rock Stars/Numberbots: Children should access this site every day to practise key number skills

Bug Club: Children can access free online books based on their book band. The expectation is that your child reads every day.

Purple Mash: This has a range of activities and games available and teachers will set ‘2Dos’ linked to learning.

Seesaw: Set tasks will be uploaded to this site and children can submit work via this platform as well as communicating with the class teacher who will provide feedback and comments on work.

 

Expectations of work

Each day children will be provided with three lessons; Maths, English and a Foundation subject.

Maths: In school we use White Rose to teach maths and a link online will follow the same plan.

English: Work in this subject will relate to spelling, punctuation and grammar objectives for your child’s year group.

Foundation subjects: learning will be linked to Oak Academy and BBC Bitesize videos to explain concepts. Additional work will be uploaded linked to these.

PE: It is important to still be physical during time at home if able to do so. See links on the PE page.

Digital Difficulties:

Parents can access platforms on phones, tablets or laptops. The school can provide paper and books if parents have limited devices.

The government has provided access for schools to request additional devices to support parents who have no devices in the home. 

Please contact school if you are having difficulties and need support or the loan of a device. Parents must sign an agreement to use devices for a limited time during their isolation period.

 

Communication:

Children can send any completed work via the online platforms as well as emailing the school at admin@saviour.manchester.sch.uk

If your child has not accessed the remote learning the school will contact parents to see if they need support or paper copies.

Children who have symptoms must isolate and have a test. If the test is negative they can return to school, however if their test is positive and they are unwell from symptoms then they are not expected to complete work until they feel better.

Children who have to isolate for 2 weeks will receive a well-being call from school during this period. Parents can contact school at any time for support.

Staff will respond to work and feedback at an appropriate time within their working day.

We have set up an email system for messages to all parents as well as year groups.

Any inappropriate messages or communications will be reported.

 

SEND:

All children identified with special educational needs will have specific tasks and resources to support their learning linked to specific plans. Parents can discuss this further with the school SENDco Mrs Faryniarz.

Safeguarding:

Please see the Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy as well as the links on the website regarding keeping safe online. Recorded lessons by Oak Academy and BBC Bitesize provide explanation and additional videos to support learning.

 

Monitoring:

The provision of remote learning will be reviewed each half-term by the SLT.  We are currently exploring the use of Google Classrooms for KS2 children whereby each child will have their own email address to support access and communication.

As this is a new way of working we appreciate feedback and will work in line with government guidance to continuously improve our remote offer.
