Each Class Teacher will upload a weekly planner for each new week of remote learning onto their personal Class Page. The Class Pages can be found under the ‘children’ tab on our school website. These Class pages have been password protected so that the content within is protected and only available to Offham families. We ask that our families do not share their passwords for the school website for safeguarding reasons. If you are an Offham family and need help logging in, please contact the School Office.
The Weekly Planner will include:
In addition to the planner lessons and resources we will be uploading the following sessions as pre-recorded videos weekly to the class pages under a section titled ‘additional lessons’:
These sessions will be uploaded at different points in the week as and when the specialist teachers are able to add them. Please feel free to fit these in as and when works for your schedule.
Does my child have to attend the Live Lessons?
We would obviously prefer it if the children could join all available streamed lessons live with their teachers, giving them the opportunity to ask questions and socialise with their peers. However, we completely understand that many parents will also be trying to juggle work commitments and will therefore also record the English and Maths live sessions. We are sorry that it is not possible to record the guided reading sessions.
Following the close of the English and Maths sessions the teachers will upload them to our secure and private Offham YouTube channel. The links to access these videos will only be accessible through the Class Pages (hence us making them password protected) and will not be searchable via a web browser. These links should not being shared via WhatsApp or on other social media platforms as this undermines the security of the videos.
In order to protect the children in our classes and the class teachers we have a set of rules for our live lessons that we are kindly asking all parents, carers and Offham children to follow. These rules are in line with our safeguarding policy. Failure to follow these rules may mean us having to revoke access to live sessions for your children.
We are looking forward to working with you and your children via our Live Lesson Platform over the next two weeks for our core subjects. Although we are sure that we can continue to deliver an outstanding provision using this technology, it is very different to learning in the classroom, which makes personalised support difficult. It is for this reason that we would like to give you some tips to enable your child to succeed in these challenging circumstances.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email your class teacher on the email listed on their class page. Alternatively, the class teacher will be ringing you once a week to check in. Please note that this call will not display a caller ID, your teacher will leave a voicemail message if you do not answer.
