REMOTE LEARNING- LOCKDOWN JANUARY 2021

 
Following the announcement by Boris Johnson at 8pm on 4th January 2021, our school closed to all except critical worker children and those from groups whose attendance is deemed essential.
 
However a comprehensive programme of remote learning is being offered for ALL pupils via the school's learning platform ClassDojo.
 
For more information about how to access your child's ClassDojo portfolio, please contact head@isleham.cambs.sch.uk  
 
Communication about that provision and onsite school provision for critical worker children and vulnerable pupils has been sent to all school families.

Our remote learning policy has been drawn up to show how the school meets the 'Remote education expectations' referred to in the 'Guidance for opening of schools during the Coronavirus outbreak' (updated December 15th 2020)

Where a class, group or a small number of pupils need to self-isolate, or local restrictions require pupils to remain at home, our school offer daily remote education. All pupils not physically unwell with coronavirus (COVID-19) but who are at home as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19) should have access to remote education.

 

Our school continues to consider how to continue to improve the quality of the curriculum to ensure a strong offer is in place for remote education provision.

The detailed remote learning planning and resources to deliver this policy can be found on each child’s ClassDojo page. There are expected to be activities for at least 3 hours of a child's day.

Activities for each day will include an explanatory video and any downloadable or printable resources/ online worksheets.
