What is Remote Learning?

The remote curriculum: what is taught to pupils at home.

A pupil’s first day or two of being educated remotely might look different from our standard approach, while we take all necessary actions to prepare for a longer period of remote teaching.


What should my child expect from immediate remote education in the first day or two of pupils being sent home?

Where possible we will try to ensure work is set for your child and similar to work that children are doing in school from day 1. However, there may be a delay of 1 or 2 days while staff prepare resources to upload.


Following the first few days of remote education, will my child be taught broadly the same curriculum as they would if they were in school?

We teach the same curriculum remotely as we do in school wherever possible and appropriate. However, we may need to make some adaptations in some subjects as we are mindful that some resources needed may not be available at home. Where possible we will offer suggestions on which household items could be used instead.


Remote teaching and study time each day

How long can I expect work set by the school to take my child each day?

We expect that remote education (including remote teaching and independent work) will take pupils broadly the following number of hours each day:


Key Stage 1 

  2 - 3 hours each day

Key Stage 2 

  3 – 4 hours each day
