What is Remote Learning?

Remote Learning is an approach to education that combines online educational materials and opportunities for interaction online with traditional class-based classroom methods. It allows children to learn from home and keep in line with their peers. The Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) has found that the effectiveness of remote teaching is determined by many of the same factors as determine the effectiveness of live classroom teaching:

  • Ensuring pupils receive clear explanations;
  • Supporting growth in confidence with new material through scaffolded practice;
  • Application of new knowledge or skills;
  • Enabling pupils to receive feedback on how to progress.

These characteristics of good teaching are more important than the medium of delivery be it in the ‘live’ classroom or through remote provision (whether or not that remote provision is live or pre-recorded).

Remote Learning will take place when:

  1. The whole school is in lockdown and every year group is accessing remote learning.
  2. One or more year group is in lockdown, but the rest of the school remains open.
  3. Individual children are isolating, but the rest of the bubble [year group] is open.
  4. Individual child is awaiting results from a COVID test (48hours- short term).

The learning that will be provided will be high quality, safe and will align as closely as possible with in-school provision. Teachers will plan for blended learning alongside their in-class plans, to ensure pupils are able to master the curriculum and make progress.
