Home Learning Plan

We offer immediate remote education if:

· any pupil needs to self-isolate when the rest of the school is still open

· a pupil’s family needs them to learn from home due to risks related to COVID 19

· if the school were directed to close.

Remote learning is provided on the first day of absence.

When teaching remotely we:

· plan a programme matched to the teaching pupils would receive in school

· teach a planned and sequenced curriculum based on our schemes of work

· suggest a weekly timetable to help structure learning at home

· match approaches for home to those we use at school wherever possible

· provide highly personalised programmes matched to each pupil’s needs

· provide a learning programme matched to the targets in each pupil’s weekly Next Steps Targets

· include regular, planned contact between staff, families and pupils

· provide a balance of practical resources and materials online

· provide a balanced programme with a range of lessons and practical activities

· monitor pupil engagement through welfare calls and respond to these accordingly

· monitor pupil progress through conversations with families focusing on progress towards targets in the Next Steps Targets

· monitor progress by reviewing completed work if appropriate

· adjust the pace or difficulty of what's being taught in response to feedback from families and pupils

· avoid an over-reliance on activities that can be too demanding for our children and their families

· support families with access to access to technology, including laptops and internet access

· use Microsoft Teams to work with individual pupils and their families

· work with individual families to find the approach that suits them and their child best.

We include:

· online teaching and videos

· weekly home learning newsletters sharing quality online resources and enrichment activities

· weekly resource packs including materials and resources linked to each pupil’s special interests

· all the resources each pupil needs

· weekly feedback on progress made

· regular meetings through Teams for pupils and families who need it.
