Remote Online Learning

Stocks Green Primary School Remote education provision:



Information for parents.

This information is intended to provide clarity and transparency to pupils and parents or carers about what to expect from remote education where national or local restrictions require entire cohorts (or bubbles) to remain at home.

For details of what to expect where individual pupils are self-isolating, please see the final section of this page.

The remote curriculum: what is taught to pupils at home


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.



Following the first few days of remote education, will my child be taught broadly the same curriculum as they would if they were in school?


  • We teach the same curriculum remotely as we do in school wherever possible and appropriate. However, we may have needed to make some adaptations in some subjects.

Remote teaching and study time each day:


How long can I expect work set by the school to take my child each day?

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

Key Stage 2

4 hours


Accessing remote education

How will my child access any online remote education you are providing?


Class teachers will provide log in details for pupils to access the any Zoom meetings each day with teachers and any other details to access online work.



If my child does not have digital or online access at home, how will you support them to access remote education?

We recognise that some pupils may not have suitable online access at home. We take the following approaches to support those pupils to access remote education:



  • We request that parents who are having difficulty accessing remote education contact the school office at
  • We will aim to provide IT support to families in need wherever possible, loaning devices if necessary with a signed loan agreement.
  • Pupils can access any printed materials needed if they do not have online access by emailing their class teacher and collecting materials from the foyer at the school before 3:00 daily.
  • Pupils can submit work to their teachers if they do not have online access by leaving it in a named folder in the foyer at school.





How will my child be taught remotely?

We use a combination of the following approaches to teach pupils remotely:


  • live teaching (online lessons)
  • recorded teaching (e.g. Oak National Academy lessons, White Rose Maths lessons, English teaching resources)
  • printed paper packs produced by teachers (e.g. workbooks, worksheets)
  • Reading books pupils have at home
  • commercially available websites supporting the teaching of specific subjects or areas, including video clips or sequences
  • KS2 longer- term project work and/or internet research activities

Engagement and feedback


What are your expectations for my child’s engagement and the support that we as parents and carers should provide at home?


  • When the pupils are working at home, it is important that they are in a good routine and ready to learn and work as undisturbed as possible. This includes being dressed and ready to talk to their teachers online and where possible, to wear headphones to avoid distractions around them.
  • They must not be using other devices – phones, ipads etc at the same time as the online lessons.
  • NO screenshots must be taken or shared on apps or programs.

Parents must monitor the apps that pupils are using to ensure this does not happen.

  • Expectations of parental support :

Routines to support your child’s education should be established and adhered to wherever possible.

Parents must not interrupt the online teaching – pupils may ask questions when prompted.

Encourage the children to complete the work set after the online lessons.

Help them to submit their work to the teacher .

Encourage reading at home.



How we will check whether all children are engaging with their work and how will parents be informed if there are concerns?


  • Class teachers will check pupils’ engagement with remote education daily. Records will be kept of those who do not partake.
  • Where engagement is a concern, we will inform parents and carers via a phone call from the class teacher


How will you assess my child’s work and progress?

Feedback can take many forms and may not always mean extensive written comments for individual children. For example, whole-class feedback or work marked automatically via digital platforms and work marked as a class together with the teacher online. Our approach to feeding back on pupil work is as follows:


  • Pupils work will be submitted to the teacher via email or other means identified by the teacher, so they can assess and feed back on pupils’ work
  • Pupils will receive feedback on their work via the  Zoom meetings or via email. This will happen regularly – but may not be every day.


Additional support for pupils with particular needs

How will you work with me to help my child who needs additional support from adults at home to access remote education?

We recognise that some pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), may not be able to access remote education without support from adults at home. We acknowledge the difficulties this may place on families, and we will work with parents and carers to support those pupils in the following ways:


  • Teachers and appointed teaching assistants will work with families to deliver remote education for pupils with SEND
  • The SEN/Inclusion team will be available via email for support and will make contact via phone or Zoom if needed .


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?


Pupils who are self-isolating whilst the school is working normally or if a keyworker pupil in lockdown is self-isolating, will be set a planned and well-sequenced curriculum with meaningful and ambitious work each day in a number of different subjects, including providing feedback. Teachers will contact pupils via Zoom – this may be with the rest of the class in school for online lessons or , as in Lockdown, through remote teaching sessions.
