Remote Learning

Blended Learning offer (Remote Learning) at St John and St Francis Church School:

  • It is important that we maintain a strong connection with our pupils and parents/carers who may find themselves learning/supporting their child’s learning remotely for a period of time, so we have put in place a Blended Learning Curriculum in order that your child’s learning can continue whilst they are at home.
  • Blended Learning is a combination of offline and online learning where pupils interact with their teacher, the lesson materials, and other pupils through both a physical classroom (for children of critical workers and vulnerable pupils) and an online platform. This is understood as a type of fusion between traditional education and modern methodology that uses technology. Blended Learning uses technology not only to supplement, but to transform and improve the learning process.
  • As a school our online learning platform is Tapestry for our EYFS (Reception Classes) and TEAMS (Microsoft) for pupils in Year 1 to Year 6 which all pupils and parents/carers have access to as long as they have some form of internet access whether that be a phone, tablet, ipad, laptop, Xbox and Play Station (see guidance sent out separately).
  • Any family who does not have access to online learning should let us know in order that we can provide remote learning in other ways if their child is unable to attend school.
