Our aim is to continue to operate our online learning platform Class Dojo and Google Classrooms and utilise it for sharing homework, communicating with pupils and parents as well as to offer links to useful educational websites which will support the children’s learning when they can’t attend school due to Covid. The guidance issued by the DfE is clear in its expectations that pupils who have to self-isolate with Covid symptoms should be able to switch to remote learning immediately. Any remote learning offered because a pupil is self-isolating or due to a further period of local or national lockdown should be of “high quality” and should “align as closely as possible with in-school provision”. Therefore, it is important that our Class Dojo and Google classroom remain in use in case of further lockdown or for pupils needing to self-isolate. In this instance, learning in the classroom could be accessible to all pupils if they were required to stay at home and will reflect the current learning.
Class teachers will make work available through Google classrooms and communicate with parents through class Dojo to ensure that pupils get access to current learning. If access to devices is an issue please tell your class teacher as we can help with this.
Below you will find documents and guidance for our remote learning plan, including how Class Dojo and Google classroom will and should be used, expectations for home learning and how to stay safe online while learning from home. You will also find some suggestions for additional resources and links to useful websites.
