Remote Learning Offer

Hemlington Hall Academy's Remote Learning offers our children instant access to continue their learning at home. Through ClassDojo and our Class Home Learning pages on this website, children and parents have access to online learning from home through a range of materials and resources. From the government’s Oak Online Classroom, to our very own teachers' live or uploaded sessions,  your child will be able to access their learning in the comfort of their own home. ClassDojo allows parents / carers to monitor their child's learning and achievements, receiving the latest news and updates, as well as the ability to communicate directly with teaching staff. If your child needs any support with technology/devices or data, please do not hesitate to contact school.

Individuals or groups of Self-Isolating Pupils / Whole School Closure

We have a step by step Remote Learning Strategy, which in the event of a child/ren not able to attend school, they can still continue their learning at home. There is a clear expectation of the teaching materials the child/ren will have access to, as well as  clear expectations of  the child. Each class teacher will use a remote learning plan to ensure online learning resources matches their current year group and needs. The sessions recap previous knowledge and skills taught, as well as introducing new concepts. This is achieved through a range of digital methods: from virtual lessons / recorded sessions or 'live' lessons ensuring children have a rich and good learning experience. Class Dojo and the class Home Learning page ensures that tasks can be uploaded easily by the children which the teacher can mark and monitor and provide instant feedback for both children and parents/carers. All work will be presented on the class' home learning web page, sharing the timetable for the week ahead. A calendar of the last week's work will be present on this page to give our families and pupils flexibility if learning has be missed for whatever reason. Our staff are on hand to support children and families through the school day, supporting with learning or technology needs.

Our remote learning procedures are detailed below, if you have any queries please just ask.
