Engagement and Feedback
What are your expectations for my child’s engagement and the support that we as parents and carers should provide at home?
We understand that it is very difficult for parents at home trying to juggle work commitments and home learning but it is expected that children will attend their daily Teams meeting with their teacher and complete the maths and English tasks set.
Although our younger learners, particularly Y1 and Reception, may need more support from adults; with technology and with completing the task, it is expected that most children will complete work independently. Teachers will set work appropriate for independent learning. Older children should be able to complete tasks with just a little encouragement and occasional support as they would if they were in school.
How will you check whether my child is engaging with their work and how will I be informed if there are concerns?
Teachers will contact you if they have any concerns about the amount of work your child is doing or the progress they are making. We will discuss how we can support you and your child further.
We encourage parents to contact their class teacher via Dojo or Tapestry in the first instance if you need any support or guidance with remote learning.
How will you assess my child’s work and progress?
Feedback can take many forms and may not always mean extensive written comments for individual children. For example, whole-class feedback or quizzes marked automatically via digital platforms are also valid and effective methods, amongst many others. Our approach to feeding back on pupil work is as follows:
We will comment on or mark most of the work sent back to us. Although all work will not be marked in depth, all work will be looked at and used to inform the next steps in learning; new work will be set accordingly.
