Key Stage One

During any period of school disruption, where whole year groups are required to isolate, we will switch to the Seesaw learning platform. Our aim is to ensure that, as far as possible, learning can continue using teaching structures that are familiar to the children.

This page sets out how we are aiming to continue delivering a broad curriculum using language and structures that the children are familiar with.

Learning will be uploaded onto the platform by 9am daily with provision meeting these minimum guidelines. Pupils will receive feedback on each piece of work they submit (this can take the form of a 'like', a comment, a video or a voice note.)
