Remote Learning Contingency Plan

DfE Guidance on Remote Education - Summary of Key Points:

Remote education, where needed, is high quality and aligns as closely as possible with in-school provision: schools and other settings continue to build their capability to educate pupils remotely, where this is needed.

Where a class, group or small number of pupils need to self-isolate, or there is a local lockdown requiring pupils to remain at home, we expect schools to have the capacity to offer immediate remote education. In developing these contingency plans, we expect schools to:

Use a curriculum sequence that allows access to high-quality online and offline resources and teaching videos, and that is linked to the school’s curriculum expectations.

Select the online tools that will be consistently used across the school in order to allow interaction, assessment and feedback.

Provide printed resources, such as textbooks and workbooks, for pupils who do not have suitable online access.

Recognise that younger pupils and some pupils with SEND may not be able to access remote education without adult support, and so schools should work with families to deliver a broad and ambitious curriculum.

Set assignments so that pupils have meaningful and ambitious work each day in a number of different subjects. Provide frequent, clear explanations of new content, delivered by a teacher in the school or through high quality curriculum resources and/or videos.

Gauge how well pupils are progressing through the curriculum, using questions and other suitable tasks and set a clear expectation on how regularly teachers will check work.

- Plan a programme that is of equivalent length to the core teaching pupils would receive in school, ideally including daily contact with teachers.

- We expect schools to avoid an over-reliance on long-term projects or internet research.
