Newton Primary School

An educational family that comes together and stays together

Click here if your child's class/ bubble is isolating from school (including lockdown)

In the event that your child's class/ bubble is away from school, your child will access learning through a blend of synchronous (live lessons) and asynchronous learning (online virtual platforms)

 

This is the timetable the school will be following when learning remotely.

Feedback

In order for us to provide the best remote learning, we will continue to provide constructive feedback to ensure pupils are meeting the correct standards in their learning. We will use the following methods to ensure your child is learning efficiently and effectively:

  • Whole-class feedback or quizzes marked automatically via digital platforms are also valid and effective methods, amongst many others
  • Personalised feedback on Seesaw/ Tapestry. This will either be typed feedback or recorded orally for the child to listen to and engage with.

 

Accessing remote education

We are providing remote education on the following platforms:

  • Seesaw Online Journal (for years 1-6)
  • Tapestry (for Reception)
  •  

We understand that some pupils may not have suitable online access at home. The following approaches are implemented to support pupils to access remote education:

  • The school will issue or lend laptops or tablets to pupils, and where parents can find more information.
  • Will issue or lend devices that enable an internet connection (e.g. routers or dongles), and where parents can find more information.
  • In the event of families being unable to access online provision, parents/carers should contact the school to discuss this further.

 

f your child does not have access to the necessary technology for online learning, please contact the school on 01773 872384 or email togetherwecan@newton.derbyshire.sch.uk.

 

Pupils with additional needs

Our school recognises that some pupils with additional needs, e.g. pupils with SEND, may not be able to access remote education without the support of an adult at home. In order to support these pupils, we will work with you to ensure they are able to access a high-quality education in the following ways:

  • Our SENDCO, Miss Spencer, will get in touch with you if your child has SEND
  • We will ensure pupils are provided with regular check-ins with their teachers via Zoom

 

We encourage you to get in touch if you believe your child may struggle or is struggling with accessing remote education.
