Remote/Blended Learning Offer 2021/22
Welcome to our Remote learning page
Here you will find further information about what St. James' offers for our remote learning provision. As schools are fully open to all pupils, the only time remote learning will be needed is if your child needs to self isolate due to having symptoms of Covid19 or due to a positive test result. In which case they would be provided with blended learning.
Blended Learning refers to the process of how schools aim to continue to provide access to a quality education for those children unable to come into school due to being ill or being forced to self-isolate as a result of the pandemic. This evolution of home learning will be consistent with the provision offered for those pupils who remain in school. Our approach, wherever possible, will be to ensure what is planned for to be completed in the classroom can be conducted to a similar level at home with pupils achieving similar learning objectives.
1. If you are ill, there is no need to complete work, just rest and get better.
2. If you are self isolating and awaiting test results, your child's class teacher will be in touch with a link to your child's weekly Padlet page. This will contain video links, power points, pre-recorded videos and learning activities for your child to complete at home each day.
3. Your child's class teacher will ensure all work uploaded on to your child's task board is marked and feedback will be given in order to ensure next steps are clear and progress is made.
4. If your whole class has had to be shut down, due to multiple positive Covid cases, the class teacher will send a Padlet Link to parents Via the school Dojo.
Mental Health and Well-being
At St. James' we understand that remote learning can have a negative affect on both your mental health and that of your child. Please do not hesitate to contact school if you or your child are struggling with your well-being.
