Remote Education Provision: Information for Parents
Attendance is mandatory for all pupils of compulsory school age. We will provide remote education to pupils in circumstances when in-person attendance is either not possible or contrary to government guidance. This might include:
- occasions when it is not possible for Richard de Clare to open safely, or that opening would contradict guidance from local of central government
- occasions when individual pupils, for a limited duration, are unable to physically attend their school but can continue learning, for example pupils with an infectious illness
In these circumstances we will ensure pupils have access to remote education as soon as reasonably practicable, in proportion to the length of absence and disruption to their learning. Should the need for remote provision arise, we will follow government guidance regarding quantity of work:
- Key Stage 1 will be provided with around three hours a day on average across the cohort; less for those in Reception.
- Key Stage 2 will be given around four hours a day.
Remote provision will be distributed via Class Dojo. This may include signposting to National Oak Academy resources and other high-quality resources. Where children are unable to access online provision, we will endeavor to provide hard copies of materials which can be collected from the school office.
The senior leader with overarching responsibility for the quality and delivery of remote education is Miss Lucinda Bellett, the Headteacher.
The temporary provisions in the Coronavirus Act 2020 expired on 24 March 2022. As a result, the Remote Education (England) Temporary Continuity (No. 2) direction no longer has effect.
