Remote Learning at Nettleworth Infant School and Nursery


Remote Education Provision at Nettleworth Information for Parents:


This page is intended to provide clarity and transparency to parents/carers about what to expect from remote home learning if local restrictions require entire cohorts (or bubbles) to remain at home. With the new variant Omicron on the rise we ensure that our remote learning provision is in place if our local restrictions change.


A pupil’s first day or two of being educated remotely might look different from our standard approach below, while we take all necessary actions to prepare for a longer period of remote teaching.


If an individual child is self isolating due to COVID the staff will provide them remote learning via Evidence Me for the time they will be learning remotely. If an entire cohort (or bubble) is to remain at home due to COVID the staff at Nettleworth will provide remote education learning planners which will directly mirror the learning taking place in school, therefore your child will be taught the same curriculum remotely as we do in school wherever possible and appropriate.


Each week the parents/carers will receive a telephone call from the child’s class teacher from either the school telephone number or a no caller id number. The parent/carer will then have the opportunity to ask for any support and discuss generally how the child is getting on. We will endeavour to help the parents/carers in any way we can.


Also as part of our remote learning, we also have a  weekly ‘meet and greet’ face to face (remotely via MS Teams) with the children and their class teacher and / or Teaching Assistant and some of their friends. This is essential for the social and emotional aspect of learning.


At Nettleworth we use a combination of the following approaches to teach children remotely:


  • The remote learning planner which directly mirrors the learning taking place in school.
  • Recorded teaching (e.g. recordings made by the class teacher or TA, Oak Academy, White Rose Hub etc)
  • Learning challenges in different forms – these include practical activities, written tasks, oral tasks and work that can be completed on IT devices.
  • Commercially available websites supporting teaching of specific subjects or areas, including video clips or sequences.
  • Reading books the pupils may have already at home.
  • Evidence Me photo/video examples sent to all parents/carers.
  • Printed paper packs produced by the teachers to be collected from the school office.
