Sacred Heart Primary aims to continue to provide an ambitious and broad curriculum in all subjects.
We have extensive systems in place for the provision of remote education where needed to ensure that children who are working at home due to: school closures during a national lockdown, shielding or self-isolation, so that they can be educated and given the support they need to continue learning in-line with children who are able to attend school.
Remote education, where needed, is of a high quality and aligns as closely as possible with in-school provision. Children who are not in school are expected to continue their learning by accessing the remote learning offer. Staff are in constant communication with families to ensure that all children access appropriate learning. Where children are not able to access remote learning, direct support is given including technical support and advice and welfare support.
We use Tapestry as our remote learning platform for children in Nursery, Reception and Year 1, all families have access to this. Teachers upload lessons, activities and links to a wide variety of learning resources; including Read Write Inc and White Rose Maths. Observations and regular communication with parents are regularly uploaded from school and home and link to the Early Learning Goals.
We use Seesaw for Years 2 to Year 6, all pupils have access to their own online journals along with individual family contacts who can have direct contact with their child's class teachers. Work is uploaded weekly and daily for children who are not in school. Children then complete the work set and return in to school for marking using Seesaw. Teachers can address any misconceptions in understanding and give a wide range of support where needed.
We use Zoom to allow all classes have access to daily live lessons. Where practical these lessons are recorded and uploaded onto the learning platforms so that children who cannot join in the live lesson can have access to it in their own time.
Whole school assemblies are held weekly via Zoom to bring the whole community together.
All families must agree to a specific Zoom Code of Conduct to access these sessions to ensure safeguarding is always a priority.
