The Remote Curriculum at Oakwood Avenue

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is an unprecedented challenge for our school system, and the traditional approach to delivering education. The impact of the pandemic has necessitated many pupils being out of school, and this will continue to be the case for some pupils. A Direction was issued by the Secretary of State for Education on 30th September 2020 and came into force on 22nd October 2020. The Direction requires that where a class, group of pupils, or individual pupils need to self-isolate, or there are local or national restrictions requiring pupils to remain at home, schools are expected to provide immediate access to remote education.

Schools have responded to this with a strong and proactive commitment to providing remote education, in challenging and uncertain circumstances. Behind the scenes, here at Oakwood Avenue, we too have been working hard to ensure we are able to provide a platform for remote learning for our children. Our chosen platform is Google Classroom. Many updates have been provided by the Government in subsequent Remote Learning Guidance documents; this is an ever evolving process and we will endeavour to keep you as updated as possible.

Please find below The Remote Curriculum at Oakwood Avenue document.  It outlines the following:

  • The Remote Curriculum-what is taught
  • How your child will be taught
  • Remote teaching and study time
  • Accessing Remote Education
  • Engagement and Feedback
  • Additional support for children with particular needs
  • Remote Education for self-isolating pupils
