During the previous periods of limited opening of schools (see https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-maintaining-educational-provision/guidance-for-schools-colleges-and-local-authorities-on-maintaining-educational-provision for guidance), all pupils were able to access learning in line with those pupils attending school and following the school's long term curriculum plans (see Curriculum and Class Pages). This was facilitated via J2e, an online platform, where teachers gave pupils access to video content and materials to support their understanding of the concepts being learned and tasks to secure the skills required to secure learning objectives from the National Curriculum and Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. This linked to the use of SOLO Taxonomy as the school's pedagogical approach. The materials covered the complete breadth of the statutory curriculum and, for Early Years, all strands of learning.
Although pupils are now in attendance at school, there may be occasions where pupils have to self-isolate but are well enough otherwise to engage in learning. In such cases, the school is able to facilitate this via J2e. School will maintain contact with parents and carers to support with this.
The school is in a position to support parents and carers with the loan of devices and additional data subject to criteria and availability.
The school has set out details of its remote learning offer and you can view the policy and related letters sent to parents and carers below, as well as the guides to using J2e.
Please find below a number of general learning resources that you may find helpful at this time to use with your child at home.

London Fire Brigade Education Team Fire Safety Workshops
London Fire Brigade have committed to working closely with the communities across London to ensure our fire safety message is still delivered whilst in this difficult period, so whilst our Education Officers are temporarily unable to visit your school in person, we have instead created three 'Home Fire Safety videos'.
Our virtual lessons focus on ‘Prevention, Detection & Escape’ from fire in the home, and cover the most common cause of domestic fires, how to prevent a fire, the importance of a working smoke alarm as an early warning device, and how to get out safely if a fire starts. The information children learn in these videos could potentially save lives one day.

Nutritional messages will feature throughout the videos and there will be a curriculum activity and a health and wellbeing challenge set everyday.
