Engagement and Feedback


What are your expectations for my child’s engagement and the support that we as parents and carers should provide at home?


Your child's education and welfare is at the forefront of everything we do. It is extremely important that children continue to learn, albeit from home, and engage daily with the learning posted.

We expect...

  • Every morning, to join teachers for the morning Zoom session and introduction of the day's sessions.
  • Every afternoon, to join teachers for the afternoon Zoom session, to ask questions and go over the day's learning.
  • To complete the Reading/Phonics, Maths, Writing and creative piece of learning each day


After the afternoon register, teachers look through each activity set on ClassDojo and record:

  • Engagement in Remote Education tasks
  • Engagement in Zoom registers


Or in the case of children working form paper packs:

Engagement in home learning activities (parent/carer can send photos of the learning or send the pack back to school)



How will you check whether my child is engaging with their work and how will I be informed if there are concerns?


On the first day of not engaging...

Teacher calls the family in the first instance, to check that they are ok and what support is needed


Teacher organises support. This could be explaining the tasks over the phone, creating a bespoke instructional video for the child, support with tech issues.


All conversations with families and support offered are recorded


If the teacher is unable to get through to the family, this is passed onto the Senior Leadership Team who will act accordingly. This could be further phone calls, a home visit, or in the case of continued disengagement could result in a referral to social services.



How will you assess my child’s work and progress?

Feedback can take many forms and may not always mean extensive written comments for individual children. For example, whole-class feedback or quizzes marked automatically via digital platforms are also valid and effective methods, amongst many others. Our approach to feeding back on pupil work is as follows:


  • Comments on work submitted on ClassDojo - work can be "sent back" for editing and/or "approved"
  • Verbal feedback given to pupils via morning and afternoon Zooms
  • Phone calls
