Remote Education, School Platforms and other links

Remote Education

Brookland Junior school prioritises, promotes and supports face-to-face education.  When this is not possible, or following government guidance, we have the capacity to provide a broad range of remote learning.

When would remote learning be considered?

  • When the head teacher decides it is not safe to open the school that opening would contradict guidance from local or central government.
  • occasions when individual pupils, for a limited duration, are unable to physically attend their school but are able to continue learning, for example pupils with an infectious illness.

Brookland Junior School uses a range of platforms and devices to provide remote learning.  School platforms used for remote learning may include a combination from: Microsoft Teams, O365, Class Dojo, MyMaths, TTRockstars, Edshed as well as external providers (e.g. BBC Bitesize).   

Remote learning may be implemented in different ways depending on the circumstances and the needs of the child.   This could include a combination of learning from: set work in advance using a range of school platforms/external providers, delivered live lessons by video conferencing with whole class, 1-1 live lessons video conferencing with a teaching assistant, using peer support in class for live lessons. 

Class teachers and year groups will decide on provision with support the senior leadership team.  School teachers will usually communicate provision with families via Class Dojo/Teams and set roughly 4 hrs learning per day and will adapt this as necessary for the needs of the individual child.

Should video conferencing lessons be planned as part of provision, all pupils are expected to adhere to the Acceptable Use Policy.  

The school will provide remote learning based on the resources available to the school at the time and provision may be limited due to circumstance (e.g. staff sickness).  

If you need assistance with technology to access remote learning please contact the school office or Mrs. Yadav (school technician).  

More details on our remote learning provision can be found in the PDF document below.

Below are some links to academic resources and platforms used by the school.  You will need your individual logins and usernames to access the sites.

Here are some links to work you can do with your child on the first day of remote learning if your child is well enough to work.  During this first day, your teacher will be organising a bespoke provision for your child's remote learning provision.

Here are some useful websites if you are worried about anything at all and want someone to talk to.  You can always speak to any adult who works in our school or our safeguarding team.
