Remote Learning

This page provides parents/carers and pupils with an overview of our approach to Remote Learning at Bassingham Primary School. Please find all of the relevant documents and links in the folders below. The current government guidance regarding Remote Learning is:


Where a class, group or small number of pupils need to self-isolate, or there are local restrictions requiring pupils to remain at home, the Department for Education expects schools to be able to immediately offer them access to remote education. Schools should ensure remote education, where needed, is safe, high quality and aligns as closely as possible with in-school provision.


When teaching pupils remotely, we expect schools to:


  • Set assignments so that pupils have meaningful and ambitious work each day in a number of subjects
  • Set work that is of equivalent length to the core teaching pupils would receive in school, and as a minimum 3 hours a day, on average, across the school cohort
  • Provide frequent, clear explanations of new content, delivered by a teacher or through high-quality curriculum resources or videos
  • Have systems for checking, at least weekly, whether pupils are engaging with their work
  • Gauge how well pupils are progressing through the curriculum using questions and other suitable tasks
  • Provide feedback, at least weekly, using digitally facilitated or whole-class feedback where appropriate
