Remote Learning

At Sheriff Hutton Primary School, we understand the need to continually deliver high quality education, including during periods of remote learning – whether for an individual pupil or many. 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.

We aim to address the key concerns associated with remote learning, such as online safety, access to educational resources, data protection, and safeguarding.
We hope the system we put in place helps to

  • Minimise the disruption to pupils’ education and the delivery of the curriculum.
  • Ensure provision is in place so that all pupils have access to high quality learning resources.
  • Protect pupils from the risks associated with using devices connected to the internet.
  • Ensure staff, parent, and pupil data remains secure and is not lost or misused.
  • Ensure robust safeguarding measures continue to be in effect during the period of remote learning.
  • Ensure all pupils have the provision they need to complete their work to the best of their ability, and to remain happy, healthy, and supported during periods of remote learning.

At Sheriff Hutton School we use Google Classroom and Class Dojo to keep in regular contact with our families. Parents receive updates from the school / class stories and the children can share their home learning experiences via their class’s page and/or the or individual portfolios.

During a period of National Lock-down the school will only be open for vulnerable pupils and the children of critical workers. The rest of our pupils will be taught remotely. the primary communication method for this will be Google Classroom. Here are some Instructions for parents / carers to help you.

Schools and teachers are expected to:

  • Set assignments so that pupils have meaningful and ambitious work each day in a number of different subjects.
  • Primary schools should ensure pupils have three hours’ work a day, on average, across the cohort.
  • Provide frequent, clear explanations of new content, delivered by a teacher or through high-quality curriculum resources or videos.
  • Have systems for checking, at least weekly, whether pupils are engaging with their work, and inform parents immediately where engagement is a concern.
  • Gauge how well pupils are progressing through the curriculum using questions and other suitable tasks.
  • Provide feedback, at least weekly, using “digitally facilitated or whole-class feedback where appropriate”.
  • Enable teachers to adjust the pace or difficulty of what is being taught in response to questions or assessments, including, where necessary, revising material or simplifying explanations to ensure pupils’ understanding.
