Home Learning Compliance Information
Hello Parents and Carers,
This document outlines how staff at Britannia Education Trust are providing remote learning for your children and what is expected of them. The teachers at Britannia Education Trust are working hard to create content each day that is inline with the curriculum that your children would have been using were they in school. This content comes in various forms and we will describe some of these below.
Register. We have created an online version of a register that provides the school with information about which children are accessing the work and who might need support. Senior staff at the school are using this information to get in contact with families who have not been registering to offer support and advice. The class teachers are also monitoring the work that the pupils are doing, so it is important that your child completes all the tasks that the teachers have set each day. There will be a suggested timetable of activities either on the home page or each day, depending on the year group. We appreciate circumstances vary for different families, so do feel free to devise your own timetable that suits you.
Shout outs. Each day the teachers (if available) will record a short video message for the students including praise for individuals who completed their work to a high standard the previous day and a brief explanation of the current day’s tasks.
Core lessons. Each day there will be pre-recorded video content, activities and tasks created by your child’s teachers for the three core subjects: Maths, Writing and Reading. There will also be an afternoon activity linked to their topic or other foundation subjects. If your child wishes to complete more activities, there are extra optional activities pages with more ideas and tasks in subjects such as Art, Dance and P.E. Activities that pupils may complete include recording video responses on Flipgrid, filling in online Google Forms that reveal the answers after children have submitted their work and also tasks set on Google Classroom such as Google Doc and Jamboard worksheets. These have all been designed and created by the class teachers.
In some year groups, live sessions will be trialled over the next few weeks and, depending on feedback, may be used more regularly. Children are invited to a live wellbeing session each week to celebrate the week's learning and interact with their classmates.
Communication. If there are any issues, parents can contact class teachers using Class Dojo but please bear in mind that teachers are very busy creating content, marking work and communicating with staff, so there may be a delay in response; we would normally only expect teachers to respond during normal working hours. If the issue has not been resolved, you can call the school office on 020 7511 5412 but again, please remember that the office staff are extremely busy.
Devices. We have made all of the Chromebook devices available for pupils (Year 2 - Year 6) to use at home if they require them. If your child is in Year 1 or Reception and you need a device, get in touch with us and we will do our best.
Internet access. It is imperative that you ensure your child is using safe and filtered internet. A child filter can be turned on if you talk to your internet provider. If you have limited internet access, get in touch with us as there might be a possibility we can help in some cases.
We appreciate that parents are often juggling their own work and personal commitments with supervising their children's online learning. Thank you for the support that you are providing for your children at this challenging time.
