Welcome to our remote education page. At Raddlebarn Primary & Nursery School, we are committed to supporting our pupils to continue their learning at home, if they need to be at home for 7 days or more.
Below you will find recommendations for keeping healthy, both in mind and body, as well as information about our remote education offer. If your child is feeling unwell, we would not expect them to conduct home learning; we ask our community to put health and well-being first.
In order to access our remote learning offer, we know that children will be spending more time online. Please check out advice and resources on our Online Safety information below.
Technology and the Internet can be fantastic resources – they can help our children to learn, create, communicate and have fun. We want to teach them to be responsible digital citizens and ensure that they have the necessary knowledge, skills and understanding to successfully navigate the online world.
Useful links for parents
Occasionally our children may have to deal with a variety of sometimes challenging issues online. If you want more information and advice about how to support your child in enjoying the digital world safely and smartly, further advice for parents/carers can be found on the following websites:

The remote curriculum: what is taught to pupils at home?
After 7 days of being at home, your child should begin to access our remote learning offer. 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.
Your child’s class teacher will set work at an age-appropriate level that match their curriculum topics where possible from the Oak Academy.
These learning opportunities will also be supplemented with independent reading and optional practice via Times Tables Rockstars
BBC Bitesize provide a variety of resources to aid home learning. Teachers may direct families to particular resources if appropriate.
If my child does not have digital or online access at home, how will you support them to access remote education?
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:
School has received a small allocation of devices from the Department of Education to support disadvantaged children in Y3- Y6 whose face-to-face education is disrupted and who are otherwise unable to access remote learning. These children may be in circumstances where they have no digital devices in the household; where the only available device is a smartphone; or where a single device is being shared with more than one other family member. However, as school either becomes or is made aware of technology access difficulties, if families do not meet this criteria, individual circumstances will be considered. Parents can email our enquiry email.
On allocation of a laptop, parents are asked to sign a user agreement and contract, which support online safety and allows for return of the device for updates, as well as giving details of how to access IT support.
