Home Learning Contingency Plan


The information below explains the things that have been put in place at Anfield Road Primary School to support your child's learning should they have to self- isolate.


As always, we are here to help. If you have any further questions having read this document, please contact:


The Remote Curriculum

What is taught to pupils at home for pupils self-isolating?


  • Remote Learning will be available within 24 hours of the school being informed that a pupil is self-isolating. 
  • While your child is self-isolating at home, they will access their learning using Google Classroom. 
  • A range of activities will be uploaded daily for your child to access. 
  • Class teachers have prepared a bespoke curriculum for your child to access at home to ensure that age appropriate knowledge and skills are taught. 
  • Your child's teacher will check their Google Classroom daily. Here they will be able to see who is interacting with assignments and they will keep track of this. Feedback will also be provided on this platform. 
  • There will be a wide range of activities and online learning resources to support learning. Class teachers will make use of, 'White Rose Maths' resources, 'Spelling Zoo', 'BBC Bitesize' and other online learning platforms to provide pupils with activities and video supports for their learning. 


  • For children with SEND, additional resources may be provided. 
  • For children with English as an additional language, a login account for Flash Academy will be allocated, with other appropriate language resources. 
  • Further information is provided in the relevant sections below. 


  • If you child is in EYFS/KS1, printed paper packs will be provided by teachers (E.g. workbooks, work sheets). 


  • Your child will also receive a daily wellbeing phone call from school. 


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 independent work) will take pupils broadly the following number of hours each day (see below). We highly recommend brain breaks between the lessons scheduled. 


Primary school- aged pupils

EYFS (N/ Rec)- 3 hours

KS1 (Y1/Y2)- 3 hours

LKS2 (Y3/Y4)- 4 hours

UKS2 (Y5/Y6)- 4 hours


Accessing remote education


If my child does not have digital or online access at home, how will you support them to access remote education? 


We recognise that some pupils may not have suitable online access at home . We take the following approaches to support those pupils to access remote education. 


School has contacted all vulnerable families to ensure that they have:

  • Access to internet
  • Access to a suitable device


Staff have contacted the families in their class, checking if they:

  • Have access to the internet
  • Have access to a device (laptop, tablet, phone, iPad, Xbox)
  • Share a device with siblings


Based on these results, families who do not have a device will be provided with an iPad to ensure that they can access their home learning. Additional support will be given to those who do not have access to the internet. 


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?


Please see our home learning agreement on our home learning page. This clearly states what is expected for all three parties: school, the child and parents/carers. 


How will you access my child's work and progress?


Feedback can take many forms and may not always mean extensive written comments for individual children. Our approach to feeding back n pupil work in as follows:


If you child has submitted a picture of their work, their class teacher will leave private comments under the assignments either praising your child's efforts, or asking them to double check a certain answer. If you child has submitted their work as an editable document, your child's class teacher will highlight, like we do in school. 


Additional support for pupils with particular needs


How will you work with me to help my child who needs additional support from adults at home to access remote education?


We recognise that some pupils, including those with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), may not be able to access remote education without support from adults at home. We acknowledge the difficulties this may place on families, and we will work with parents and carers to support those pupils in the following ways. 


  • Your child's class teacher will provide a tailored curriculum to suit the needs of your child. (This may include resource packs, visual timetables and equipment). The tasks will be differentiated to support your child with accessing the learning for that lesson. 
  • Both SENDCOs (Mrs Evans and Mrs Turner) are working in school and can be contacted by phone (usual school number or email adin for the attention of the SENDCO). 
  • There is a dedicated Twitter page @AnfieldRoadInclusion which is regularly updated and links with outside agencies such as ADHD Foundation and the local authority SEND services. 
  • If your child is in EYFS/KS1, resource packs will be delivered to ensure learning can still take place. 


The remote curriculum

What will my child be taught remotely, if the whole class has to self-isolate?


We use a combination of the following approaches to teach pupils remotely. Some examples of remote teaching approaches are as followed:


  • Daily phone calls will be made by the class teacher.
  • Recorded messages from your child's class teacher to reflect on the previous day's work.
  • Recorded messages from your child's teacher explaining new concepts and summarising lessons.
  • Recorded teaching maths videos from White Rose. (Staff videos or links to BBC Bitesize will be available for children in EYFS).
  • If you child is in EYFS/KS1, they will be supported through their virtual classroom, accessible on Google Classroom. Here, links will be provided to support with their daily lessons. 
  • If your child is in EYFS/KS1, printed paper packs have been produced by teachers (e.g. workbooks, worksheets).
