The quick guides below provide step by step information to support children and their families in the use of Microsoft Teams.
This information is intended to provide clarity and transparency to pupils and parents or carers about 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 pupils are self-isolating, please see the final section of this page.
A pupil’s first day or two of being educated remotely might look different from our standard approach, while we take all necessary actions to prepare for a longer period of remote teaching.
Pupils will be sent home with a learning pack and Microsoft Teams information. Home learning links are available on the school website.
We teach the same curriculum remotely as we do in school wherever possible and appropriate. However, we have needed to make some adaptations in some subjects. For example in Year 6 children would be making Greek pots from clay. In this instance, the activity will need to change but the learning objectives around the sculpture remains the same.
We expect that remote education (including remote teaching and independent work) will take pupils broadly the following number of hours each day:
|Key Stage 1||Children in KS1 will have three different sessions each day. These include registration and story-time with the teaching team. Approximately 3 hours|
|Key Stage 2||Children in KS2 will have three different sessions each day. These include registration and story-time/reading sessions with the teaching team. Approximately 4 hours|
Mayflower School is using Microsoft Teams as the learning platform for remote education. All children have their username and password and have had time to practise logging on.
We recognise that some pupils may not have suitable online access at home. We take the following approaches to support those pupils to access remote education:
We use a combination of the following approaches to teach pupils remotely:
Some examples of remote teaching approaches:
We expect pupils to complete all aspects of their remote learning, following the timetable that is shared by class teachers.
We ask parents to:
The school will monitor attendance and engagement everyday by registering the children who attend live lessons and by monitoring the children’s work on Microsoft Teams.
You will receive a phone call from a member of the class team at least once a week. As part of this conversation, we will discuss engagement, how your child is getting on with their learning and discuss their wellbeing. This is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions.
Feedback is important and can take many forms. Your child will receive feedback every day in the following ways:
We recognise that some pupils, for example some pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), may not be able to access remote education without support from adults at home. We acknowledge the difficulties this may place on families, and we will work with parents and carers to support those pupils in the following ways:
In the event that children and families continue to experience difficulties in accessing remote education, please contact the SENCo who will discuss the availability of places onsite.
Where individual pupils need to self-isolate but the majority of their peer group remains in school, how remote education is provided will likely differ from the approach for whole groups. This is due to the challenges of teaching pupils both at home and in school.
Children that are required to self isolate will be provided with a learning pack with a range of resources. They will need to use the links provided on the school website to support their learning.
