Remote learning at Cabot Primary

The Prime Minister has asked that schools close to most pupils from 5th January 2021. This means we need to provide remote learning for your child. We know how hard this can be and will be doing all we can to support you and your children.

Please encourage your child to use the online resources we are providing. Your child’s teacher will call you and your child regularly to see how you are and see if you need help. If you are unable to access online learning because you don’t have suitable devices or internet connection, please let us know. We have a small number of devices in school available.

We have a limited number of spaces in school for face to face teaching. These are for key workers and vulnerable children. If you are a key worker and need provision for your child to enable you to go to work, please contact the school. We are trying to offer as much face to face teaching as possible for children who are unable to access remote learning successfully at home. To enable us to help as many children as we can as safely as possible, these places will need to be part time.

Reception and Key Stage 1

Children in Reception and KS1 will be taught remotely using Seasaw, we have found this to be a more accessible platform for our younger children. Children are expected to complete 3 hours of learning daily; this will include online learning and tasks that can be completed without a device. Teachers will set daily lessons in reading, writing, maths and phonics as well as another curriculum area. The lessons provided will include: videos recorded by the class teacher, videos from other agencies such as BBC or Oak Academy and tasks that can be completed on Seasaw.

Key Stage 2

Children in KS2 will be taught remotely using Google Classroom. Children are expected to complete at least 4 hours of learning daily; this will include online learning and tasks that can be completed without a device. Teachers will set daily lessons in reading, writing, maths and spelling as well as another curriculum area. The lessons provided will include: videos recorded by the class teacher, live lessons in Google Meet, videos from other agencies such as BBC or Oak Academy and tasks that can be completed on Google Classroom.
