Aldersbrook Primary School Remote Education Plan
DISCLAIMER: All Information provided is subject to change based on Government Guidelines and Recommendations.
Guide for Parents – Nursery to Year 6
All remote education will be posted on your child’s SeeSaw account.
Please contact the school office or class teacher if you have lost your SeeSaw login .
Please note that we do not expect work to be completed by children who are unwell.
This is what you should expect to receive:
If your child is isolating:
- Work will be set daily on SeeSaw. This will provide Maths, English and other subject activities in line with your child’s curriculum.
How will my child be taught remotely?
- Pupils will be taught through a range of approaches. These will include:
- Work Assignments via SeeSaw across all curriculum areas
- Reading books that pupils may have at home
- Commercially available websites supporting the teaching of specific subject or areas, including video clips or sequences (please see website for many great examples you could use)
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. If you need support with a device or with online access, please contact us.
- IPads will be loaned to families that have limited/ no access to devices and all Pupil Premium families will have a Chromebook offered to them for use at home.
- Support with Wifi is available through Vodaphone SIM cards if required- please contact the office.
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, for example 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
- Teaching staff will differentiate work on SeeSaw to meet the needs of pupils (where appropriate)
If your child needs to access their SeeSaw or Zoom and has trouble logging in, please email email@example.com
