Get Going Remote Learning
At Meadhurst Primary school we are committed to ensuring that all pupils continue to receive the highest quality of education possible in the event that individuals, small groups, or whole classes are unable to attend school due to circumstances relating to COVID 19. Our contingency plan for remote learning is informed by the latest guidance from the Department for Education and stakeholder feedback and is therefore an evolution of the ‘Home Learning Plan’ format offered during lockdown. This Remote Learning Plan is driven by the following overarching principles:
- Our obligation to ensure the safety of pupils, parents and staff
- Our commitment to the welfare and wellbeing of pupils and staff
- Approaching the planning task in a measured and deliberate way
- Making the best possible decisions on the basis of the evidence we have and within the constrains and parameters we face in our schools and across the Trust
Stage 1: ‘Get going work’ – Where a member of the household is awaiting the results of a test (first 48 hours), a range of resources and online learning tools will continually be available to allow children to carry on learning in core subjects.
