Remote Learning Provision

In order to ensure that learning is continued, irrespective of lockdown and self-isolation, Culgaith CE School has developed the following plan. This plan offers remote learning opportunities whilst also acknowledging that some households have limited access to devices and would require the loan of a school laptop.

This plan will be applied in the following instances:

1.       An individual is self-isolating because of a positive test within the household;

2.       A group of children are self-isolating because of a case of coronavirus in the bubble;

3.       A whole bubble or cohort is self-isolating because of an outbreak of coronavirus

4.       A national, enforced school closure

The plan complies with the expectations and principles outlined in the DFE document https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/guidance-for-schools-coronavirus-covid-19.

If in the circumstance of an enforced school closure, we will offer spaces in school for children of Key Workers and Vulnerable children. Those children will access the same provision offered to those learning from home, where staff will teach live lessons.

In the event of any form of isolation and loss of learning caused by Coronavirus, parents must understand that engagement in home learning is compulsory, as is the expectation that Culgaith CE School makes provision available and accessible to all. However, if children themselves are too ill to attend then they should not be expected to engage in home learning and will inform school in the normal manner.

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
3 hours of remote learning with a minimum of 2 hours of live lessons a day – there are minimum expectations for remote provision.
Key Stage 2
4 hours of remote learning with 2 hours at least of live teaching a day-there are minimum expectations for remote provision.
