Remote Learning Expectations at Nettleworth
The guidance we have received regarding remote learning clearly states that Primary schools must ‘provide an average of three hours a day’ of learning. Parents/carers are not expected to replicate the full hours of a school day at home. Remember that school also have playtimes and lunchtimes, so at home the children will need down-time to play and to take regular breaks from learning.
The children should complete the work on the weekly planner and submit it via Evidence Me or the child’s year group email and will be marked and commented on by the child’s class teacher or TA.
There is an expectation that families will complete a blended learning agreement this will include parents sending school comments, photographs and/or videos on parent share through the evidence me app and accepting phone calls from school, which will either be from the school number of an unknown number (teacher’s own phone with withheld number). Teachers will not be expected to contact parents over the school holiday, before 9.00am and after 4pm, during weekends unless it is a matter of urgency and is agreed with the Head Teacher.
