Remote education for self-isolating pupils
Where individual pupils need to self-isolate but the majority of their peer group remains in school, how remote education is provided will likely differ from the approach for whole groups. This is due to the challenges of teaching pupils both at home and in school.
If my child is not in school because they are self-isolating, how will their remote education differ from the approaches described above?
We endeavour to provide daily remote learning (during the pandemic) for all children who are self isolating. We request that parents notify the school as soon as possible so the staff are able to make these arrangements. The work may not be accessible first thing in the morning as the teachers may be in class and will need time to adjust their work and post it in the appropriate format.
The independent work provided will be in line with the class work their peers are accessing. Teachers will provide additional instructions and will include powerpoints and slideshows to support the learning. Feedback will be provided (as above) through written comments, which the children will be able to read and act upon.
Self isolating children will not however be able to access Live Teaching Sessions or Google Meets as outlined above, when a majority of children are accessing their learning in school. Contact will be made with the children if they are struggling to access their learning.
Calcot Infant School will be holding open mornings over the next couple of months to enable prospective families to view the school and get a taste of what our amazing school can offer.Read more
