Remote Learning Policy

Guide to Google Classroom

Aim

Remote education is where pupils and the educator are not physically present in a traditional classroom environment. Information is relayed either on or offline through technology such as online learning platforms. (Google Classroom).

At Courtwood Primary we understand the need to continue to deliver high quality education, including during periods of remote learning – whether for an individual or for 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.

Scenarios for Remote Learning

  1. Year Group closed (Partial Closure)
  2. Whole School Closure 
  3. For individual pupils on suspension

Information

  • Learning will be provided via Google Classroom
  • Teachers will upload work each morning. This work should be completed on that day, where possible, and sent to teachers through Google Classroom. 
  • Children should continue with the daily expectations of reading, spellings and times tables. 
  • Registration will take place in the morning and afternoon via Google Meet

Access to Technology

We are aware that not everyone has access to high quality technology. We have tried to identify which pupils do not have access to a laptop, PC, tablet or adequate WiFi – a phone is not an effective learning tool. If you are still struggling to access the learning due to issues with the devices you have, please contact the school office.

Mental Health and Wellbeing

Mental health and well-being is extremely challenging but important in these challenging time. Our Nurture Team – Mrs Cleaves, Mrs McCormack and Mrs Worboys are working and are available for advice. Please contact the school office or your child’s class teacher if you would like support in this area.
