Remote Education Information

Learning at home can be challenging for both students and parents, and so clarity of what Our Lady of the Rosary will be providing, and what will be expected of students will support this to be an effective process.


A pupil’s first day or two of being educated remotely might look different from our standard approach, while we take all necessary actions to prepare for a longer period of remote teaching.


What should my child expect from immediate remote education in the first day or two of pupils being sent home?


For the first few days as the teacher prepares the remote learning provision, children will be given printed workbooks to take home/collect or an online version of this if not possible. The children will complete these independently in the first instance.


Following the first few days of remote education, will my child be taught broadly the same curriculum as they would if they were in school?


Yes, we teach the same curriculum remotely as we do in school. However, we have needed to make some adaptations in some subjects. For example, our music curriculum is online.


Remote teaching and study time each day

How long can I expect work set by the school to take my child each day?

We expect that remote education (including remote teaching and independent work) will take pupils broadly the following number of hours each day:

Key Stage 1

3 hours a day

Key Stage 2

4 hours a day


Accessing remote education

How will my child access any online remote education you are providing?


Our Lady of the Rosary is using ClassDojo as our online platform. Please click below to find out more information on it.

Our Remote Learning Guidance outlines in detail the online tools we are using to support Remote Education.


If my child does not have digital or online access at home, how will you support them to access remote education?

We recognise that some pupils may not have suitable online access at home. We take the following approaches to support those pupils to access remote education:


Please contact the school office if you do not have access to the remote education. We have laptops and tablets to loan to families, along with internet support if needed.

If you need printed materials, please contact the school office.

If you do not have online access and would like to submit work, please contact the school office. They will discuss with you how best to share the work with your child’s class teacher.
