Welcome to the Remote Education section of our school website.
For daily learning and messages from your teachers, please login to Class Dojo.
The information contained here, is a guide to what you can expect from Remote Education.
At Kessingland Church of England Primary Academy, we aim to teach the same curriculum remotely as we do in school, wherever possible and appropriate, in order to provide a progressive and sequenced way of learning.
Our ambitions for Remote Education:
- Set learning so that pupils have meaningful and ambitious work each day in a number of different subjects across the curriculum.
- Teach a planned and well-sequenced curriculum so that knowledge and skills are built incrementally, with a good level of clarity about what is intended to be taught and practised in each subject.
- Provide frequent, clear explanations of new content, delivered by a teacher in the school or through high-quality curriculum resources and/or live lessons / pre-recorded videos.
- Gauge how well pupils are progressing through the curriculum, using questions and other suitable tasks and set a clear expectation on how regularly teachers will check work.
- Enable teachers to adjust the pace or difficulty of what is being taught in response to assessment, including, where necessary, revising material or simplifying explanations to ensure pupils’ understanding.
- Live lessons and pre-recorded videos are always led by the usual class teacher, supported by other familiar adults from the regular teaching team, so that children feel comfortable and confident.
- You can also expect to see a member of the Senior Leadership Team in some live lessons. This is for training and monitoring purposes and ensures that we are providing the best possible education for our pupils.
In order to achieve these ambitions, we use a number of online platforms in order to deliver the very best in Remote Education.
Class Dojo, Google Classroom, Zoom and Tapestry are great resources that provide an interactive learning experience and increased communication with your teachers, when you need to learn from home. They are fantastic learning tools, which are monitored to keep you safe.
We will provide learning which most children will complete in the suggested time. Children in Key Stage 2 have been provided with a suggested timetable for the day but please remember this is ONLY a guide. Some children may finish quicker and some may take longer. We perfectly understand that many parents/carers may have to work from home, so please do not become anxious if you find you are unable to keep to the recommended time frame.
We believe in the development of the whole child and that learning takes many forms. Every time your child learns a new skill (for example, cooking, gardening, or building); please share these experiences with us, by uploading a photograph with a short explanation to their portfolio on Class Dojo or Google Classroom.
Please remember that the health and mental well-being of both your child and your family are paramount at this time.
Keep safe and keep learning.
