Remote education provision at Somerville: Information for parents
This information below is intended to provide clarity and transparency to pupils and parents or carers about what to expect from remote education if local restrictions require entire cohorts (or bubbles) to remain at home.
For details of what to expect where individual pupils are self-isolating, please see the final section of the document.
When teaching pupils remotely Somerville staff will:
Staff will ensure that the children are being set maths, reading and English each day. Then, using the Oak Academy, staff will choose some non-core subjects from the week. (2/3 lessons). Children will also be invited to participare with exericse via Joe Wicks and Spellings will be set weekly.
Whilst the children are in school in key worker and vulnerable children provision, they will complete the same online learning as those children at home.
Staff working from home are responsible for the 'marking' of the Seesaw work as staff in school will be providing support to the provision for key workers and vulnerable children.
Each week, if there are any children in class who haven't accessed the remote learning, staff will make a phone call to the parents to investigate why. This will be done during time in school. If parents or carers want paper copies, staff will organise this but ideally to reduce workload for all involved children will be encouraged to complete the online learning.
