National lockdown with schools closed except for children of key workers and vulnerable children or children with an EHCP.
EY and Year One:
Work will be provided daily using Seesaw, this will match the work that the children in school will be completing. Staff will include some videos of their teaching to support the home learning, parents will also be directed towards recorded videos such as BBC, White Rose maths or The Oak Academy. Feedback will be provided daily by staff working either in school or from home.
Class sizes will be limited to 15 children. Organisation of classes will be based on need. The class teacher of the children will always teach them at some point in the week (unless they are ill). There will usually be two members of staff with each group of children.
Children will be provided with at least 3 hours of work each day. Children who are not engaging with Seesaw will receive telephone calls to see how school can support.
Year Two and Key Stage Two:
Work will be provided using Microsoft Teams, this will match the work that the children in school will be completing. Children should log into Teams at 8.50 where they will receive their initial instructions. Teachers will keep a register. Children not present will be contacted via telephone at the beginning of the lesson. Children at home will receive the same live teaching as those in school. This will consist of a full curriculum, wherever possible, there may be some aspects of the curriculum such as art, DT and PE which need to be modified. Children will be able to join in with singing lessons delivered in school.
Class sizes will be limited to 15 children. Organisation of classes will be based on the needs of the children. The class teacher will always teach them at some point in the week (unless absent through illness). There will usually be two members of staff with each group of children.
Children in Year Two will be provided with at least 3 hours work a day. Children in Key Stage 2 will be provided with at least 4 hours work a day. Feedback will take place during lessons through oral feedback, via Classkick (in Year 6) and via the children uploading work on Teams in assignments. Children who are not engaging with Teams will receive telephone calls to see how the school can support them.
Ipads will be provided for children who do not have access to a suitable device. Dongles and extra data for mobile phones will be organised by school – working in conjunction with the DFE. Additional resources will be provided wherever possible. Children having internet issues will be contacted to see how school can support them.
Children with EHCPs and High Needs Funding will be invited into school. Children who do not wish to attend will have an individualised plan based on their needs and a risk assessment will be shared with Stockton SEN Team. Children on SEN Support will continue to address the targets from their SEND Support Plan. SEN provision will include differentiated targeted support via Teams or Seesaw. Bespoke work packs will supplement Teams or Seesaw.
Teachers will incorporate the use of Breakout Rooms on Microsoft Teams to support different groups of children. Teaching Assistants may be deployed to support pupils 1:1.
