Remote Learning Offer
All children who are not attending school due to the current closure are able to access level 4 of our remote learning offer. This will be refined and improved throughout the half-term and we will regularly update you with changes.
Should children need to self-isolate, you can find our remote learning offer below. This will be different depending on whether or not your child is self-isolating because of a bubble closure, or because they have symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive.
We wanted to stress that the work provided is recommended but your wellbeing and the wellbeing of your child is the priority in these challenging days; you can only do what you can do.
We do the best that we can to ensure that all children can access the online learning however if you require support with this or would prefer physical copies of the work, please contact the school.
We welcome feedback on our remote learning provision and will contact parents and carers after a bubble closure. Please contact the school if you have any suggestions for our remote learning provision.
At Alderman Richard Hallam Primary School, we use Seesaw in class, for homework and for our remote learning offer. Below you can find a simple user guide and Miss Ellis has created a video which demonstrates exactly how to use Seesaw. Please don't hesitate to contact the school if you need any support in accessing or using this software.
