Remote Education Curriculum 2020/21

Our ambitious remote education curriculum mirrors the quality and content of our in school curriculum content and objectives and will continue to meet the needs of all children, leading to sustained improvements in outcomes. Each day follows the daily timetable, providing objectives, tasks and links and contact with a teacher to ensure that whilst at home, all children can continue to learn with the same progression and quality. Our expectation is that each child at home follows the daily plans laid out, using the links and completing the work set. They can then send any work and communication to their class teachers using Purple Mash. Feedback will be given by the class teacher using Purple Mash.

Our expectation is that all children at home will connect and engage with remote learning in all subjects.


Safeguarding and Remote Education

As children are being educated at home during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, it is vitally important that we continue to follow the rigorous safeguarding procedures that are in place within school.

It’s especially important for parents and carers to be aware of what their children are being asked to do, including:

  • sites they will be asked to use
  • school staff their child will interact with

We will continue to emphasise the importance of a safe online environment and encourage parents and carers to set age-appropriate parental controls on digital devices and use internet filters to block malicious websites. These are usually free, but often need to be turned on.

The following resources will support parents and carers to keep their children safe online:


  • support for parents and carers to keep children safe online, which outlines resources to help keep children safe from different risks online and where to go to find support and advice
  • guidance on staying safe online which includes information on security and privacy settings
  • Thinkuknow provides advice from the National Crime Agency (NCA) on staying safe online
  • Parent info is a collaboration between Parentzone and the NCA providing support and guidance for parents from leading experts and organisations
  • Childnet offers a toolkit to support parents and carers of children of any age to start discussions about their online life, to set boundaries around online behaviour and technology use, and to find out where to get more help and support
  • Internet matters provides age-specific online safety checklists, guides on how to set parental controls on a range of devices, and a host of practical tips to help children get the most out of their digital world
  • London Grid for Learning has support for parents and carers to keep their children safe online, including tips to keep primary aged children safe online
  • Net-aware has support for parents and carers from the NSPCC, including a guide to social networks, apps and games
  • Let’s Talk About It has advice for parents and carers to keep children safe from online radicalisation

UK Safer Internet Centre has tips, advice, guides and other resources to help keep children safe online, including parental controls offered by home internet providers and safety tools on social networks and other online services

Foundation Stage

We hope that you find the remote learning package for EYFS easily accessible. Once the children are logged onto their device, they will be able to complete the work set. They will need their purple mash login to access some of their work which has been sent home. We would like you to send any of the children’s completed work into school for the Foundation Stage staff to see. Please use your EYFS parent tapestry login as we will then be able to provide feedback, next steps and celebrate the children’s work with them.Please contact Mrs Wiles, kwiles@sandal.wakefield.sch.uk should a problem occur.
