Remote Learning at Bevington
In the event of a whole school closure or the temporary closure of individual pods due to a positive case of COVID 19, remote learning will commence online the next working day.
Aims of Remote Learning
Our aim is for pupils to access the full curriculum learning for their year group using the online platform through the use of Google Classroom and Google Meet.
At Bevington our remote learning aims to:
- Provide pupils with access to the curriculum
- Allow pupils to have direct teaching input from their teachers
- Receive feedback to help improve their learning
For children with additional needs, the closure of school and switch to online learning can be challenging, particularly for those children who rely upon a consistent routine.
For those children with the most complex needs who have an Education, Health & Care Plan (EHCP), they have been offered the opportunity to continue learning in school. This enables them to continue to access their personalised curriculum with their Learning Support Assistant. They are then also able to utilise the sensory resources and facilities at school that are so crucial to their learning and development.
Our designated Art Therapist and Speech Therapist will continue to visit the school during this time, providing face-to-face sessions for the children on their caseload who are continuing to attend.
Understandably, some children with additional needs and EHCPs will learn from home during the closures and have the opportunity to access Google Classrooms, enabling them to continue those interactions with their peers and key adults. Teachers and Learning Support Assistants are able to create ‘break out rooms’ to provide some adapted small group or one-to-one work for those children who require it.
In some instances, Google Classroom may not always be appropriate for the whole day for children with very complex needs. In these situations, teachers and Learning Support Assistants have liaised with parents and created personalised learning packs to take home that are tailored to the individual child’s needs and targets.
For the children learning from home, the Speech, Art and Occupational Therapists will be providing sessions remotely, as well offering support and advice to parents.
Timetables for Remote Learning
The following timetables outline how a day would look for each year group. We would look to return pupils to school at the earliest possible opportunity in accordance with guidance from the Department for Education and Public Health England.

Reading at Home
We have purchased Bug Club for the whole school, so that your child has access to high quality texts. Bug Club is a finely-levelled reading scheme, which ensures that all children can find books at exactly the right level for them. This reading scheme is available to all of our children across the school and will replace the Reading Records and the reading books the pupils take home weekly for this year.
