Fawbert & Barnard's Primary School

Learning for Life

Remote Learning

At Fawbert and Barnard’s, we want to ensure that every child has the opportunity to learn to a high standard. Remote learning has been further developed in October due to the changes to the pandemic. The School want to ensure that the children at Fawbert and Barnard’s Primary School get the same enriched, balanced curriculum whether the children are in school or at home. This follows the TMAT remote learning policy. 

Children can receive and submit their remote learning using Seesaw and Tapestry. Teachers can also communicate with the children via these platforms.   For further information please see below at Home learning PDF. 

We are improving the quality of education given to our pupils if we do need to go into another lockdown or a bubble(s) will need to isolate due to a positive case. This will only go into action if there is a positive case within the bubble – please see the  contingency plan for further details. 

Each week, a time table will be created in order to give children a mixture of virtual learning via Zoom from the class teachers as well as independent tasks set for children with minimal supported needed from parents/ guardians. These times tables will include the balanced recovery curriculum ensuring children receive the correct amount of core and non-core subjects meeting the needs of the children. Furthermore, these time tables have been created strategically across the school to ensure that we minimise the amount of time children are online and to take into consideration number of devices at home for children to use. 

Each week, we aim to have a wellbeing community period for each class where children can meet with the teachers and friends where we can ensure children’s wellbeing is considered. Additionally, teachers and TAs will be checking on each child to ensure they are supported throughout the period or remote learning. 

All of this has been adapted from the feedback that we received from the surveys we have collected in June/ July and in September. 

We want to continue to build strong communication with our community and are happy to receive feedback and comments to improve the learning process.

We have delivered three webinars regarding remote learning and how it would run if we do need to isolate for a period of time – please see the learning zone.
