  • Remote Learning

    Due to the current circumstances we find ourselves in, the school has outlined its plans should remote learning be required to continue. Below you will find the three potential scenarios where remote learning will be required and the provision in each scenario for children in each key stage. Within each scenario we aim to have remote learning up and running within two working days.

    For remote learning we will be using Microsoft Teams to facilitate live teaching. This will be supplemented with work packs provided by class teachers. All children will receive their login details via text; please keep this information safe.

    There are three potential scenarios where we would have to move to remote learning:

    1. Your child (and any siblings who also attend Pimlico Primary) are absent because they are awaiting COVID-19 test results and the household has been required to self-isolate. In this scenario, the rest of the class will continue to attend school and be taught in person as normal.

    2. Your child’s whole class is not permitted to attend school because they, or another member of their class, have tested positive for COVID-19, and we have been advised by Public Health England to close the class.

    3. The whole school is closed because of a local or national lockdown.

    In all scenarios, the appropriate timetable of learning will be sent out to children. We will also send an email containing guidance on how to use Teams and safeguarding information relating to online learning. Please ensure that you read all of this information and contact pimlicoprimary@pimlicoacademy.org if you have any queries or concerns.

    Scenario 1

    EYFS and KS1

    Children will attend daily phonics and maths lessons with the class teacher on Microsoft Teams, with work packs provided to supplement online learning.

    Work packs provided for other subjects will be provided with detailed instructions. These will be available to collect from the school.

    We ask that you support your child by aiming to read daily for at least 15 minutes with them.

    KS2

    Children will follow their regular timetable, with all lessons being taught online through Microsoft Teams.

    Exercise books and text books to supplement online lessons will be available to collect from school. Work will be collected and marked on return to school.

    Children should continue to complete their daily homework for maths and grammar.

    Children should read daily for at least 20 minutes.

    Scenario 2 and 3

    For all pupils, there will be form time time at the start and end of each school day in order to:

    • take attendance
    • talk through the lessons for the day
    • participate in PSHE activities
    • address any behaviour issues
    • address any technical issues
    • talk through the day
    • hold class and school assemblies

    Form time will be run through Microsoft Teams.

    EYFS

    Children will attend daily phonics and maths lessons with the class teacher on Microsoft Teams, with work packs provided to supplement online learning.

    Children should read daily for at least 20 minutes.

    Pupils with SEN

    We recognise that for some pupils, for example pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), accessing remote learning may be challenging. 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:

    • Children with EHCP's will be invited to attend our in-school provision. Here, they will follow a timetable designed to meet their specific needs.  Any speech therapy or occupational therapy will continued to be delivered in school, by school staff, with remote input from the therapists.
    • Children with EHCP's, but who remain at home, will be set individual timetables, designed to meet their specific needs as much as possible. They will have daily sessions with their familiar 1:1 adults to support their learning and will also be supported to access any on line lessons. They will have access to support resources and differentiated work via TEAMS or by packs sent home.  Speech and occupational therapy interventions will continue remotely, where possible.
    • Children without EHCP’s, but who are on the school SEN register, will also have regular sessions with a 1:1 and access to support resources and differentiated work via TEAMS. Support staff attend online lessons so that they are able to offer support in the lessons through the use of ‘Breakout Rooms’.

    Parents will be contacted weekly to discuss each child’s progress.
