As an inclusive school, our prime aim is that no one should be left out, excluded or fall behind.
In the event of a child having to learn at home due to self-isolation (as opposed to being ill) or a bubble or whole school closure, work will be provided online and as a paper copy where required.
This information is intended to provide clarity and transparency to parents or carers about what to expect from remote education at Moss Lane School where national or local restrictions require entire cohorts or classes to remain at home. This information also details what to expect where individual pupils are self-isolating.
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. Each year group follows their normal curriculum whether they are learning remotely or at home. The same curriculum-based learning objectives are learnt by both those pupils in school and by those learning remotely.
At Moss Lane School we expect our pupils to spend approximately 3 hours a day (as per Government guidelines) engaging with their remote learning. However, we understand that family logistics can make engagement difficult and that young pupils need a substantial amount of input from parents or carers. This can be very challenging and so we fully appreciate that pupils need to work flexibly over each day. Teachers will track the engagement levels of pupils and will then follow-up, through a supportive phone call or email, should there be any concerns.
We recognise that some pupils may not have suitable online access at home. We therefore take the time to work with families to offer them an alternative such as the provision of extra resources or information about teaching points and ideas. In the past, we have also used some of additional funding to provide families with online access at home.
We use a combination of the following approaches to teach pupils remotely when whole classes or year groups are at home: –
In addition to the above, we remotely support vulnerable pupils and those pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities through a tailored and individualised approach.
This approach includes: –
Where individual pupils need to self-isolate, but the majority of their peer group remains in school, the remote education that is provided differs slightly from the approach for whole groups. This is due to the challenges of teaching pupils both at home and in school. Self-isolating pupils are therefore provided with the following : –
At Moss Lane School, we have tailored our remote learning to, what we believe, in our professional opinion, is suitable for each year group. In other words, the home learning in each group will be different and will be based around the needs of the children and the teachers’ curriculum planning.
