Remote Learning

At Highfurlong School, our aim is that should any individual pupils need to be at home for any extended period, they can still access a curriculum appropriate to their needs and abilities, so that, as far as possible, pupil progress and well-being is not negatively impacted. This will include tasks that are intended to promote their physical and mental wellbeing.

Teachers will use their professional judgement to provide the most engaging and accessible ‘personalised’ learning resources and support appropriate to the needs of each pupil in their class (and their families) to ensure continued progression. This may be a blend of online resources through our website, SeeSaw, paper resources either posted or delivered (if appropriate), e-mailed tasks, use of software or Apps or, in some cases where appropriate, access to parts of some specific live online face-to-face lessons via ‘Zoom’ or pre-recorded sessions.

The class teacher (or a member of the class team) will make contact to support families in implementing the tasks set. We will work with parent carers to agree an ambitious yet pragmatic approach to supporting our children and young people with complex needs to access appropriate remote learning and support, where they are not able to be in school.

Our remote education offer ensures that learners continue to engage in learning, including skill maintenance and developing home and community-based skills. Where applicable, these learning opportunities will require adult support.

It is anticipated that remote learning provision will be in place for the 2021-22 academic year.
