Home learning Contingency Plan

Disruption this year

​Over the next academic year, there is the potential for significant disruption depending on the local and national situation. The following could all happen.

  • Individuals / households having to self-isolate. 

  • A group of children having to self-isolate because of a case of coronavirus in the bubble.

  • A whole bubble having to self-isolating because of an outbreak of coronavirus.

  • School closure/local lockdown.

These situations have different challenges and requirements and we therefore need a contingency plan for each tier of ne

 

Tier 1: Individuals / households having to self-isolate:

In the first instance, if parents are collecting their child during the school day, they will take home a resource pack. Y2-Y6 children will have a maths and reading comprehension book to write in, which will supplement learning. EYFS and Y1 children will take home a resource pack which includes a whiteboard, pen and an eraser. 

 

If children are already self-isolating, packs will be available to collect from the school gate by appointment. 
 

Using Class Dojo, the Classteacher will upload learning links/worksheets between 3pm-5pm the day before to allow parents to see the learning materials prior to supporting their child. The teacher will decide what materials are most appropriate for the individual child.

 

If teaching input is required for core lessons, the teacher will either direct the parent to a relevant Oak National taught session or upload a video link of themselves teaching directly to the isolated child at the same time as teaching to the rest of the class. Only the Classteacher and modelling area will be viewable on screen. Non-core lessons and resources will be uploaded to Class Dojo.

 

School staff can check the isolating child’s understanding by answering questions on ClassDojo.

 

Completed work should be photographed and uploaded to Class Dojo. School work books and packs should be returned to school after self-isolation.

Tier 2: A group of children having to self-isolate:

Using Class Dojo, the Classteacher will upload learning links/worksheets between 3pm-5pm the day before to allow parents to see the learning materials prior to supporting their child. The teacher will decide what materials are most appropriate for the individual child.

 

If teaching input is required for core lessons, the teacher will either direct the parent to a relevant Oak National taught session or upload a video link of themselves teaching directly to the isolated child at the same time as teaching to the rest of the class. Only the Classteacher and modelling area will be viewable on screen. Non-core lessons and resources will be uploaded to Class Dojo.

 

Once the teacher modelling is complete, the teacher will check the isolating child’s understanding by answering questions on ClassDojo to allow the child to complete the work.

 

Completed work should be photographed and uploaded to Class Dojo.

We will arrange for a paper pack of materials, which match the work that is going in class, to be delivered home as soon as possible.

Tier 3: A whole bubble having to self-isolate: 

Teachers will upload a video to ClassDojo with instructions for children and parents for the following day (after isolation). In this video the teacher will discuss the remote learning arrangements and expectations. Teachers will also share a timetable of learning – this will include core subject lessons, a non-core lesson and a whole class reading session per day (recorded by the teacher).

 

Using Class Dojo, the Classteacher will upload worksheets between 3pm-5pm the day before to allow parents to see the learning materials prior to supporting their child/ren. Teaching assistants will be able to support the classteacher in identifying resources.

 

The classteacher will share links to appropriate lessons from White Rose Maths or Oak National lessons through Class Dojo. Teachers and teaching assistants will then be accessible to children through ClassDojo so that any issues or re-teaching can be sent.

 

For non-core lessons, resources will be uploaded to Class Dojo and where possible web-links to appropriate support materials will be shared. This will often be through Oak National using lessons that link to the curriculum. There will be an additional end of day scheduled upload so that the classteacher or teaching assistant can complete the reading for pleasure session.

 

Mrs Bray or Mrs Clarke will also upload an assembly each week. This will encourage children to keep working, celebrate successes and promote a togetherness.

 

Completed work should be photographed and uploaded to Class Dojo. Teachers can then review the work completed and ensure that the following day’s lesson addresses misconceptions etc. Feedback and queries can take place throughout the day using Class Dojo. Those children that need additional support following feedback will have scheduled input.

 

In the event of teachers becoming ill, support staff will be required to ‘takeover’ the Class Dojo account with resources being uploaded.

 

SEND Pupils

Where children would normally receive additional support from SEND agencies, the SEND team (Miss Bryant, Mrs Clarke and Mrs Bagnall) will make arrangements for those to continue via ClassDojo as long as the agencies engage.

 

The SEND team (Miss Bryant, Mrs Clarke and Mrs Bagnall) will share appropriate Oak National SEND lessons with teachers who will then send these out to parents.


Families without Devices
We will arrange for a paper pack of materials, which match the work that is going in class, to be delivered home as soon as possible.

Tier 4: A local or national lockdown: 

School will remain open for children whose parents meet the government definition of a key worker and for those children deemed vulnerable by the senior leadership team, SEND team or outside agencies. 

 

Work will be set for pupils as per the Tier 3 plan. When the classteacher / class teaching assistant is working in school looking after the key worker / vulnerable children, a member of staff from one of the other classes, who is not on duty in school, will be responsible for uploading work.  


Families without Devices
We will try to arrange for a laptop to be delivered to home to enable the child to access the work online. Where this is not possible, a paper pack of materials, which match the work that is going in class, to be delivered home as soon as possible.
