Seton aims to continue to provide an ambitious and broad curriculum in all subjects. This applies to our remote learning as well as our in school provision.
In line with government requirements, we are ready to provide immediate remote education to any children who are unable to attend school as a result of the current pandemic.
In addition to our timetabled lessons and activities, we provide a VIRTUAL LIBRARY to support reading for pleasure.
Safeguarding is our first priority, both during `normal' school times and during lockdowns.
Remote learning has brought with it increased online activity for most children.
Parents can access a wealth of information and advice via our dedicated E-Safety page which can be accessed here.
Home learning can be difficult
We know that supporting children at home, alongside managing a whole host of other everyday tasks and routines can be challenging for children and families alike.
We have a dedicated support page to help families during this difficult time which can be accessed here.
We are always here to help: request a call back from one of our team by emailing email@example.com
You are never alone.
Full details of our remote learning offer can be found HERE.
During the current lockdown (January/February 2021) our offer is via Microsoft Teams. All children have a personal login and have been trained to use the platform. Daily contact from class teachers supports children to access lessons and regular feedback guides them to produce work of a high quality. Feedback may be given in live lessons, or via assignments. Written, audio and video feedback is used to promote excellent progress. The `POSTS' section in Teams is used to address misconceptions in real time.

We have extensive plans to develop our provision further. Our lessons align as closely as possible with in-school provision, but some subjects are `blocked' for a later full return to school, e.g. MFL. Meanwhile we are exploiting new opportunities to join with creative projects such as `Amasing Connect 21' to promote the arts via a very unique medium.
Each class teacher provides detailed instructions for children and their families. We draw resources from a range of providers, including Oak National Academy, Pobble, Accelerated Reader, Learning by Questions and White Rose Maths. These resources are enhanced by or own teachers, who provide pre-recorded and live support and extension activities to meet the needs of all pupils.
We know that remote learning will never be able to match the experience of learning in the classroom, but we are determined to ensure that all of our children have the very best chance of continuing their learning journey through these difficult times.
Further information about remote learning can be found in the Class Pages of this website. A weekly timetable of planned activities, along with additional suggestions for home learning, can be found within each area. These are regularly updated.
If you need any support with remote learning, or if you would like to share any comments or ideas for improvement, please email Mrs Isaac at firstname.lastname@example.org
We always welcome feedback. Our Remote Learning Questionnaire can be accessed here and takes less than two minutes to complete.
Meanwhile, we hope the following information will help you support your child's home learning experience.
