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.


Keeping your child safe online

Whilst there are huge benefits to being online in order to stay connected to family and friends during this period, the government recognises many parents may feel concerned about the activities and content their children are accessing. This guidance outlines resources to help keep children safe from different risks online and where to go to receive support and advice.

It is important to have regular conversations about staying safe online and to encourage children to speak to you if they come across something worrying online.

These resources provide guidance for parents and carers to keep children safe online. They will, amongst other things, support you to talk to your child about a range of online safety issues, set up home filtering in a child-friendly way and set up age-appropriate parental controls on digital devices:



Remote Education Curriculum

So that pupils and their parents know what to expect from their school if they need to self-isolate or local restrictions require them to remain at home, schools have been asked to publish information about their remote education provision on their websites by 25 January 2021. Our information is published below and takes into account the most up to date guidance published by the DfE, EEF and Ofsted. We hope that this gives you the detailed information you require, however, should you wish to find out more, please contact ; headteacher@sandal.wakefield.sch.uk
