During the period of National lockdown, schools should allow only vulnerable children and the children of critical workers to attend. All other pupils should not attend and should learn remotely.
The remote education provided at St Mary’s is equivalent in length to the core teaching pupils would receive in school and will include both recorded or live direct teaching time, and time for pupils to complete tasks and assignments independently between 9 – 3pm each day. The schedule for these lessons is on the year group weekly planning on our Home Learning page.
Should your child be unable to join the live lesson, they will be able to watch the recorded session and complete the uploaded assignments. Teachers will register all pupils each day and be on hand via Microsoft Teams and email, to be able to support your child with their learning, answering any questions and providing next steps and feedback on their work.
In addition, teachers may also schedule some intervention support for small groups of pupils appropriately, to help to consolidate their understanding and learning further.
Where it is not possible for children to access online learning, home learning packs are being provided for collection at school.
