Remote education provision: information for parents
At Tunbury, our priority is to support our children’s wellbeing and learning throughout each phase of Covid disruption. From January 2021, we have created a dual model of provision, with Tunbury staff and children allocated to in-school or remote learning. In both parts of our provision, our aims are to:
- look after our children and support their mental health - for example by maintaining contact and connectivity with other children and adults within the school community.
- achieve the highest quality of teaching and learning that we can in the circumstances – at school, this may feel like ‘normal’ lessons, but at home, teachers will be using a wide range of tools including live lessons, online communication, differentiation and feedback on learning. In both settings, our teachers are developing and refining new teaching and learning strategies for this period, appropriate for both their working context and children’s learning needs.
The document below is based on a government template and is intended to help parents/carers understand what to expect from remote education, where national or local restrictions require entire cohorts (or bubbles) to remain at home. For details of what to expect where individual children are self-isolating while the majority of their class or year group remain at school, please see the final section.
We are committed to maintaining good communication with our parents and carers at all times. If you have any further queries on your child’s remote education at Tunbury, please do contact us via the school office, as we will be happy to help.
