Information for Parents

Find out more about remote education expectations in the actions for schools during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
In line with DFE guidance, throughout lockdown, NCEA Warkworth Primary School will:

  • set assignments so that pupils have meaningful and ambitious work each day in a number of different subjects
  • set work that is of equivalent length to the core teaching pupils would receive in school, and as a minimum:
    primary: 3 hours a day, on average, across the school cohort
  • provide frequent, clear explanations of new content, delivered by a teacher or through high-quality curriculum resources or videos
  • have systems for checking, at least weekly, whether pupils are engaging with their work, and inform parents immediately where engagement is a concern
  • gauge how well pupils are progressing through the curriculum using questions and other suitable tasks, and provide feedback, at least weekly, using digitally facilitated or whole-class feedback where appropriate
  • enable teachers to adjust the pace or difficulty of what is being taught in response to questions or assessments, including, where necessary, revising material or simplifying explanations to ensure pupils’ understanding.

For full correspondence with parents in relation to remote learning, please see Class Dojo and Parent Mail for regular updates. Class teachers also post daily updates on Dojo too.

Parental Feedback

We asked our parents how well they felt that their child had been supported by the school through the Covid-19 pandemic and the results are in!
