Remote Learning

What is remote education?

Remote education is a broad term encompassing any learning that happens outside of the classroom, with the teacher not present in the same location as the pupils. Digital remote education, often known as online learning, is one means of delivering remote learning education and uses digital technologies.

Remote education is a means, not an end. The aim of education is to deliver a high-quality curriculum so that pupils know more and remember more. Remote education is one way of doing so.

This means that everything we know about what a quality curriculum looks like still applies. The remote education curriculum needs to be aligned to the classroom curriculum as much as possible. And, just like the classroom curriculum, it needs to be carefully sequenced and ensure that pupils obtain the building blocks they need to move on to the next step.

 At this current time, schools have a duty to provide remote education to state funded, school-age children who would usually be required by law to attend. SSET schools have already been delivering remote education where it has been needed and are continually working to improve provision to children unable to attend school.

Sheffield South East Trust’s schools will set meaningful, and ambitious work each day in an appropriate range of subjects following the national curriculum. Teachers will have clear, high expectations which they will share with the children and their families. The remote education provided within SSET will be similar in length to the core teaching pupils would receive in school and include a mixture of recorded and live direct teaching time with time for pupils to complete tasks and assignments independently. The amount of remote education provided at Sheffield South East Trust schools should be as a minimum:

● Key Stage 1 – 3 hours a day on average across the cohort, with less for younger children

● Key Stage 2 – 4 hours a day
