Remote Learning Policy Oct 2020


Remote Learning
 at Birkwood Primary School

In light of the current situation, it is a legal requirement that all schools provide children with a platform for learning at home in the event that they are sent home due to an incident of COVID-19. To ensure that we can continue to provide effective teaching in the event of a bubble closure, we have implemented the use of Microsoft Teams.

Microsoft Teams will act as a virtual classroom where teachers will provide elements of ‘Live Teaching’ in which they will set work for children to complete at home. It also allows teachers to provide vital feedback on work to challenge and extend children’s learning at all levels. All children in  theevent of a bubble closure, will receive the necessary codes. 

We will also be making use of our other school learning platforms, including: Seesaw, Bug Club, Purple Mash, TT Rockstars and Spelling Shed as we want to ensure that their education at home is creative, engaging and exciting. 

Please follow the link to your child’s class to view the overview of what a ‘typical week’ will look like when learning at home. Also, at the bottom of this page, you will find all of the links to the platforms your child/ren can access.
