Home learning and the expectations of it
There is a national expectation that children should have a minimum of four hours of learning per day during this lockdown period. We acknowledge and understand that everyone’s circumstances are different. Therefore, we are going to try our best to meet as many different people’s needs as we possibly can! We are able to offer the following three forms of blended home learning:
1) Online learning – using a range of pre-recorded teacher-led videos, Google classroom, some face-to-face teaching via Zoom/ Microsoft Teams, some interactive teaching materials. For this, your child will need access to the internet and a device to access the internet.
2) Purely paper-based learning – for this, your child will not need any access to the internet. If necessary, school can provide a fortnightly pack of work that will need to be collected. Some delivery may be available (The Pickle Post 😀) .
3) A mixture of paper-based and online learning – see definitions above.
We are going to produce a suggested weekly timetable of activities. As a minimum, we would like all children to complete daily activities on the following: English – reading & writing, Maths and work from one other curriculum area. We appreciate that many of you may be working from home and therefore understand if you are unable to follow our suggested timetable. We suggest that you are flexible in your approach to home learning in order to meet your family’s needs. We wish to minimise disruption to your child’s learning and therefore we will be following the planned learning for this term. If your child is in school, they will also be following this timetable and learning.
We do not want anyone to feel under pressure with regards to home learning and we hope you will continue to support us in trying to educate your child as best we can during these unprecedented times. If you need help, then please ask.
There is a dedicated team of teachers who are supporting the home learning.

In Transform Trust, we are committed to securing the best learning outcomes for our pupils through a blended learning approach. This means that the same broad school curriculum will be delivered whilst pupils are in school or if local restrictions require pupils to isolate or remain at home.
What is remote education?
Learning that takes place at home or away from school. Pupils will be supported by school by engaging in age and stage appropriate learning tasks, often with the use of technology to support connection, feedback and active participation.
What should my child expect of remote education in the first day or two of pupils being sent home?
On the first day of isolation, a member of school staff will make telephone contact to explain how your child will be supported during their period of self-isolation or local restrictions. The school will check whether an adult is able to support at home and if your child has access to stationery and learning resources required. This may include access to technology. Schools will work with families as much as possible to ensure they have all of the equipment they need.
High quality learning resources are available for immediate use on the Transform Trust Community webpage. You can access these by visiting www.transform-trust.co.uk
