Every One, Every Day

Partial/full school closure - contingency plan

Covid-19 Contingency plan for remote learning

 

In the event of a full or partial school closure, school will provide learning resources and support, from the first full school day of closure (video lessons from the second full day of closure).

Learning:  We appreciate every family has differing circumstances.  However, to prevent children from falling behind, it is important that they complete the remote learning tasks set when absent from school (providing the child is well).  Parents must contact the class teacher with any concerns.  Children can respond to work using the Seesaw tools or by recording their work in their homework books and uploading a photograph.

Teaching: In the event of a partial or full school closure, teachers will set work on Seesaw based on the school’s well sequenced curriculum, building on knowledge and skills, that they would have taught in school.  Teachers will provide clear explanations of new content and adjust the pace and difficulty of what is being taught in response to their assessments, including, where necessary, revising material or simplifying explanations to ensure pupils’ understanding.  Work will be differentiated to meet pupil needs.

Feedback:  Teachers will provide individual feedback to pupils that may require the pupil to revisit a piece of work, before starting the next task.  Feedback from the teacher may be in written or verbal form using the tools available on Seesaw.  Feedback will address any misconceptions held by the pupils in the work submitted, and acknowledge the work completed.  Pupils should be made aware that their work has been seen. 

 

Teachers will not be available to respond to messages from parents during evenings and weekends.

 

Submission:  Tasks will have a ‘to be completed by date’ to ensure teachers are not overloaded with the return of more than 4 pieces of work per pupil per day. Work should be submitted by 4pm.  Work submitted after this date/time may not be responded to by the teacher.  Extenuating circumstances will be taken into account but, this is at the discretion of the class teacher.

Teacher workload:  must be manageable, setting four pieces of work daily will mean a maximum of 120 pieces of work per day to be addressed.  Expectation of work being completed by pupils before what would be the end of the school day, should allow time for feedback/recognition of work to be completed.

Assessment:  Teachers will make formative assessments and track pupil progress based on the work submitted by the pupils.
