Remote Learning

Remote learning is the term used by the Department for Education to describe the learning that happens at home during a period of isolation.

When to complete remote-learning:
Remote-learning will take place if:
a) Your child has COVID-19 symptoms and is isolating waiting for a test result
b) Your household is isolating as a member of the household has COVID-19 symptoms
c) You are told to self-isolate by Track and Trace
d) The school bubble needs to close
e) The area goes into a local lockdown

Remote-learning does not need to take place if:
a) Your child is off school due to a different illness
b) Your child is too unwell to complete home learning

In the event of any form of isolation and loss of learning caused by Coronavirus, parents must understand that engagement in home learning is compulsory, as is the expectation that Maple Tree Primary School makes that provision available and accessible to all. However, if children themselves are too ill to attend then they should not be expected to engage in home learning.

Maple Tree Primary School uses Google Classroom to support our home learners. There will be a mix of video lessons and tasks and activities which mirror, as closely as possible, the learning that is going on in the classroom. The government's expectation is that should your child be well enough to learn but unable to be in school, then the following times are a general expectation:

KS1 children: - 3 hours a day on average across the cohort, with less for younger children (Reception)

KS2 children - 4 hours a day

Once the isolation has been reported, you will be contacted on how best to support your child's learning at home if applicable. 

Please see below for our policy and expectations regarding blended and remote learning.
