For Key Stage 2 (Years 3-6)
Teachers will set 30 minutes of English homework and 30 minutes of Maths homework each week. We also expect children to try to do 20 minutes of reading per night. In addition to this, some homework in other subjects will be rotated across the term.
For KS1 (Years 1 and 2)
We ask the children to try to achieve 15 minutes reading every night. Teachers will set around 10 minutes of English, Maths and RE homework every week.
EYFS (Nursery and Reception)
Early years children get a summary of learning every week, plus phonics words to learn and a very short maths task which should take around 5 minutes. We also set some exciting practical activities to do at home for example shape hunts and counting etc.
In the event of the school or pod closures, we are ready to implement our remote learning strategy.
This remote learning strategy aims to:
Ensure consistency in the approach to remote learning for pupils who are not in school
Set out expectations for all members of the school community with regards to remote learning
When providing remote learning, teachers must be available between 8.30 am – 3:00pm. If they are unable to work for any reason during this time, for example due to sickness or caring for a dependent, they should report this using the normal absence procedure.
When providing remote learning, teachers are responsible for:
Setting work: Teachers will set work for the pupils in their classes.
- Day one of closure: teachers will provide activities for the day
- Day two: timetable for the duration of closure will be published in keeping with current curriculum and lesson progression for the children to follow during closure.
- The work set should follow the usual timetable for the class had they been in school.
- English and Maths Work needs to be set by 9am of the day it is expected to be completed by 1pm. Foundation subjects set for afternoons.
- Teachers in Nursery to 6 will be setting work on Google Classroom.
Providing feedback on work:
As per the marking policy one piece of work for each subject (English, Maths, and Science etc.) should acknowledged and commented on per lesson.
Comments must be made through the online learning platform.
Keeping in touch with pupils who are not in school and their parents:
If there is a concern around the level of engagement of a pupil/s parents should be contacted via phone or parentsupport email to assess whether school intervention can assist engagement.
All parent/carer emails should come through the school admin account: firstname.lastname@example.org
