Remote Learning at Christ the King
During full lockown, due to Covid-19, whilst we will remain open for the children of critical/key worker and vulnerable children, the majority of children are expected to learn remotely. Our remote learning offer is comprehensive and meets the expectations set out in the DfE guidance `Remote Education Support’ found here.
If your child does not have access to a computer/laptop and/or the internet, please do contact us so that we can help by loaning a laptop/device. We can provide paper copies of learning if necessary (please contact the class teacher or office to request one) but please bear in mind these should be returned weekly so that the teacher can give your child/ren learning feedback. Please do let us know of any barriers to your child accessing remote learning so that we can offer support and try to remove them.
Children will be expected to complete tasks set out by teachers set out on their daily timetable; a full curriculum offer, which includes all National Curriculum subjects, is made available over each week. Children’s well-being is something close to our hearts at Christ the King and so each year group will ensure there are numerous opportunities throughout the week to focus on this too. Virtual meetings, through Zoom or Google Classrooms, are just one way of enabling children to see their friends, connect with school and support each other. We strongly urge you to facilitate your child’s participation in all these meetings with their year groups for the sake of their emotional well-being. Weekly Gospel and Sing, Signs of God and Golden Assemblies will also be posted each week. Finally, we do recognise that the remote learning offer is very `screen based’ and all year groups will build in some time for the children to be away from screens!
