William Byrd Primary Academy

Home Learning

We are committed to providing high quality remote learning for all children. A comprehensive timetable of remote lessons and tasks will be posted on the website daily if for any reason children have to learn from home. Lessons will be a blend of video lessons from Oak Academy, our own teachers’ video lessons and our own learning tasks.

We all know how vital it is that children do not start to fall behind again and staff in school will be working hard to make sure children’s learning carries on.

Should anything be unclear in the work that is set, parents can communicate with class teachers via the class email address or by contacting the main school email address. They should make clear which child, class and subject the question relates to. Staff will respond to all enquiries within 24 hours between 9am and 3pm.

Where possible, it is beneficial for children to maintain a regular and familiar routine. We recommend that each ‘school day’ maintains structure. This should include regular bedtimes and daily reading for pleasure.

We encourage parents to support their children’s work, by viewing the work set together, and then making appropriate plans to complete the work. This can include finding an appropriate place to work and, to the best of their ability, supporting pupils with work encouraging them to work with good levels of concentration.

Every effort will be made by staff to ensure that work is set promptly on appropriate platforms but school cannot guarantee that the chosen platforms will work on all devices. Should accessing work be an issue, parents should contact school promptly and alternative solutions will be made available (loaning devices etc.).
