Remote Learning Expectations and Routines

Remote Learning

Remote learning refers to learning that is completed away from the physical school building. As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, many children will be required to learn remotely during the academic year 2020-21. The overall purpose of remote learning is to minimise the disruption to pupils’ education through providing access to learning that mirrors what would have been provided in school.

At Halsnead Primary, we understand the need to continually deliver high quality education, including during periods of remote working whether for an individual pupil, a specific bubble or for the whole school due to a local or national lockdown. We recognise the importance of maintaining high expectations in all areas of school life and ensuring that all pupils have access to the learning resources and support they need to succeed.

Further details can be found in our Remote Learning Guidance.


How will this be provided?

A child, family or group of children could be required to isolate for up to 10 days. Some children maybe ill during this period but the vast majority will be well and isolating as a precaution to break the chain of transmission.

Government guidelines require schools to provide education for children who are in isolation.

At Halsnead we aim to do this by:


• Using Seesaw & Tapestry as our main platforms for setting & responding to work and communicating with the children;
• Making use of our on-line subscription services to support the learning. These include RWI virtual classrooms, TT Rockstars and Numbots
• Providing lessons online from the day of closure
• Providing daily contact with the pupils through:
o Feedback in Seesaw/Tapestry
o Phone conversations (if needed)
