Following the announcement made on 4th January 2021, teaching and learning was moved online for the majority of our children. The school used Google Classroom to deliver live teaching and assemblies, breakout rooms for group work, polls and quizzes to check understanding, set assignments, grade work and provide feedback to individual children about their work.
Our 'Remote Education Provision' (outlined in the link below) delivered a combination of live teaching, pre-recorded lessons and access to lessons from external providers (White Rose Maths, Oak Academy etc.). Throughout lockdown, we continued to follow our school curriculum, only making changes when necessary, such as team games in PE and tool work in DT.
When families had no possible alternative at home, children of key worker families were invited to school to use technology to access the online provision. The children of families with no technology or internet access are also invited into school to ensure all children have access to our provision.
Since March 2021, all children have been back in school learning in their classrooms. Where children have been required to isolate, but are well enough to learn, the Google Classroom has still been used to set and submit work. Lesson content can be directed to individuals not in school. The Google Classroom is also in active use for homework tasks across the school so that the skills and knowledge of online provision are maintained should they be needed again.
