Remote Education

Remote Education At Comber Grove Primary School


What is remote education?


  • Remote education: any learning that happens outside of the classroom, with the teacher not present in the same location as the pupils.
  • Digital remote education: often known as online learning, this is remote learning delivered through digital technologies.
  • Synchronous education: this is live learning
  • Asynchronous education is when the material is prepared by the teacher and accessed by the pupil at a later date, for example pre-record sessions

How do we provide Remote Education at Comber Grove?

Accessing Remote Education - How will my child access any online remote education?

Our Digital Platform


We teach a planned and well-sequenced curriculum so that knowledge and skills are built incrementally, with a good level of clarity about what is intended to be taught and practised in each subject so that pupils can progress through the school’s curriculum.


The digital platform we use for Remote Education is ClassDojo. This is used consistently across the school in order to allow interaction, assessment and feedback. Scroll the the bottom of this page to find out more about how we use it and for any support.



Remote Teaching and Study Time Each Day


How long can I expect work set by the school to take my child each day?


We expect that remote education (including remote teaching and independent work) will take pupils broadly the following number of hours each day:

KS1 - 3 hours

KS2 - 4 hours


How will my child be taught remotely?


We use a combination of the following approaches to teach pupils remotely:

  • Live sessions - 2 per day via Zoom
  • Pre-recorded sessions - 4 per day. This includes Reading/Phonics, Writing, Maths and a creative lesson (Science, History, Geography, Design and Technology, RE, Art, PSHE and Wellbeing)
  • We challenge the children (and parents/carers) to present learning developing their Computing skills
  • We provide printed paper packs for those unable to use/access technology - these are collected back in school and feedback given
  • We are still following our Curriculum Maps (where possible) which you can find on website here.



We also provide:

  • Twice weekly live PE sessions, led by our Sports Coach (this is for children AND parents)
  • Twice weekly assemblies: Star of the Week and one on current issues
  • Weekly music sessions
