Remote Learning

Welcome to Windale’s Remote Learning Page. Remote Learning is when your child is learning from home. This may be because they must self-isolate or because their bubble has been closed by the school or a National Lockdown. 

Our online teaching can consist of direct face to face teaching and work set, which the children complete online and return directly to the teacher for marking. This is all carried out online and children DO NOT need to print anything. We also use Oak National Academy for some of our Wider Curriculum online learning.  

When creating a whole school timetable for online lessons, we have looked carefully at family groups and have tried to book teaching slots at different times for siblings so that the grown up at home is available to support one child at a time and to enable a device to be shared at home if needed.  


What will happen if we have a National Lockdown? 

Years 2-6 all have an individual Chromebook which can be collected from school for use at home. The children will be taught online by their class teacher via TEAMs Classroom. Every day, a child will receive online teaching for Maths and English (in small groups), plus a whole class Story Time.  Wider Curriculum work will also be set daily and can be accessed via TEAMs Classroom.  

Teachers will differentiate their teaching to take into account the learning needs of their children. This means each teacher will be teaching up to three Maths and three English/Phonics sessions, plus the Story Time per day.  In addition, 1:1 online teaching for children with complex SEND will be provided by the class teacher and support staff as appropriate. 

Years Reception and Year 1 do not yet have a school device. These have been purchased and will hopefully be ready to be loaned out in the coming weeks. School will contact parents and carers to let them know when the devices are ready. 

Reception and Year 1 will be taught in the same way as Years 2-6. Please see the Years 2-6 section above for details.  


What will happen if a Bubble must close? 

If a bubble must close due to COVID-19, children at Windale will be taught remotely by their class teachers. Please see above under National Lockdown for details. 


What will happen if my child has to self-isolate? 

If your child must self-isolate, you will be emailed a grid of work for your child to complete. There are three lessons to complete each day - Maths, English and a Wider Curriculum lesson. This work is from Oak National Academy and is chosen by the class teacher as it links closely with the learning that is taking place within the classroom, ensuring continuity of learning for your child. Ms Solomon will also call to check you are able to access the learning and she is available for you to phone if you are having any technical difficulties!
