REMOTE LEARNING REMINDERS for St John's CE Primary School 

 

What ‘remote learning’ can I expect from St John’s CE Primary School for my child?  

We will be using Microsoft Office 365 for our education learning platform.    

MICROSOFT 'TEAMS'  

 

Please follow this link for further guidance and resources on the use of Microsoft Teams at home:    https://wke.lt/w/s/9pcwBY 

 

Teams login details       

 Your child’s Login/username is: This has been sent by email to you

Your child’s password is: As advised

Please do not change your child's password. 

Any queries, regarding Office 365, please sent to office@stjohns.reading.sch.uk  

 

In your child’s virtual classroom, to ensure the safety of our children, the “Chat” function will be switched off for children.  This means that children will only be able to communicate and share documents with staff members.

(If this fails in some way we would appreciate some parental monitoring to ensure the child(ren) are using their virtual learning platform in an appropriate way. Please do alert school staff who will always endeavour to offer appropriate and timely support. 

 

PARENT / CARER GUIDE   We aim to implement remote learning from your child’s third day of absence, at the latest.  There are two general scenarios outlined below;

 

  1. the first scenario where your child is not permitted to attend school 
  2. the second outlines the actions in the case of a whole bubble not being permitted to attend school or if the school is directed to completely lockdown.

 

During the first days of absence, while the resources may be being prepared by your child’s class teacher/team, a combination of paper learning packs, our website and the Government’s Oak Academy or Bitesize online lessons may be used for every year group, covering a wide range of our curriculum objectives.

 

Further Information and Links     If you do not have access to the internet and cannot engage with any online learning, please inform the school office and a member of staff will call to discuss the best way to support your child’s learning while they are absent from school.  This is likely to be paper learning packs that can be printed off and collected at the school office.  

 

If you do have access to the internet, you can access the following age appropriate learning for your child:
