Homework and Remote Learning



Throughout their time at Johnson Fold pupils will be encouraged to spend time at home working to develop their school based learning. Most of the time pupils will be able to complete the work on their own, but there will be times when they will need your help. The work set may be reading, learning spellings and tables, discussing, researching, investigating or reinforcing. The school has a homework policy which is available in school.

In setting homework we aim to:

· Promote positive attitude to work and school
· Raise achievement of all pupils
· Increase self discipline
· Develop home/school partnerships
· Consolidate and reinforce skills in different subjects

Remote Learning

In September 2021, all our classes returned to full-time education following the Covid-19. Although we hope that the majority of our children will now have an uninterrupted experience, there is the possibility that an individual child or indeed the whole school, will need to self-isolate for a period of time. We have therefore put in place a plan for remote learning so that all children can continue with their education. This meets the expectations set out in the DfE guidance ‘Remote Education Support’


If a child does not have access to a computer/laptop and/or the internet, the school will do all it can to support children and will provide paper packs of learning. Where funding can be accessed, remote devices (eg, laptops) and/or 4G connections will be sought. Parents will be reminded to make the school aware of any barriers to accessing remote learning. Paper copies will still be available.
