Welcome to our home learning pages.

Our strategic lead for remote learning is Rebecca Anson.

 In response to school closing due to the COVID 19 outbreak, these pages were set up for each class, to enable children to work from home during the first lockdown and the period of school closure. During the 2020 Spring and Summer terms, teachers uploaded activities on to our school website, for children to complete at home.

Since September 2020, we have moved to using Google Classroom to enable a more interactive approach; initially using the learning platform for homework and in computer lessons, to enable children to familiarise themselves with how to access and upload school work. 

There are 3 scenarios where children may have to move to online learning:

  1. Your child (and their siblings who also attend St Gabriel’s) are absent because they are awaiting COVID-19 test results and your household is required to self-isolate. The rest of the class are attending school and being taught in person as normal. In this scenario, work will be set on Google Classroom for your child, with links to video lessons on Oak Academy or other platforms, reflecting as much as possible, the learning in the classroom.
  2. Your child’s whole class is not permitted to attend school because they, or another member of their class, have tested positive for COVID-19, and we have been advised by Public Health England to close the class.
  3. The whole school is closed because of a local or national lockdown.

In scenario 2 and 3 a remote live video register will take place via Google Classroom at a set time each morning. The teacher will upload their own short video lessons daily, explaining the learning and activities for English, Maths and another subject.   

Please refer to our Remote Learning Plan to see how your child will be supported in their learning, should they have to learn from home due to any of the above reasons. 

School has a limited number of devices which we are able to loan out to families. Families may borrow these free of charge for 8 weeks at a time. Devices need to be returned to school after 8 weeks, but can be ‘checked out’ again for a further 8 weeks.  These devices are intended for children who are having difficulty accessing on line work because of having to share with brothers or sisters, or for children who have no access at all, to tablets or computers at home.
