Remote Learning

At KTS, as needed, we offer a remote education which is bespoke and meets the needs of individuals on a case-by-case basis, avoiding a one size fits all approach.  

 

 

Teachers and support staff are working hard to support those at home, by adapting our KTS curriculum meaning pupils can engage from home and continue to make progress. However, at KTS we are very aware that many of our pupils are unlikely to be able to access remote education without adult support.  We have also considered carefully the expectations in relation to remote learning and the significant demands it may place on families.

 

We have overcome digital barriers and distributed either tablets, or laptops where needed, meaning all pupils have the chance to engage. We have developed the use of our digital platforms including, where appropriate, Purple Mash and Education City, where teachers can set work for pupils at their individual level and give feedback. Where appropriate, we are also offering live lessons, either on an individual basis or as a group, through Microsoft Teams.

 

We have liaised with other professionals including Occupational Therapists and Speech and Language Therapists to ensure those pupils at home continue to receive support, for example sensory programmes have been shared with home and resources, such as symbols and therapy programmes have been shared with parents.

 

Teachers and teaching assistants are in contact with families through email, phone calls, video calls and doorstep visits and. If you have any queries – please contact your child’s teacher.

 

Where appropriate work is marked and feedback is given, families are given the opportunity to record progress and share this with teachers. Pupils are set individual home learning targets, so families are aware of their child’s ‘next steps’.
