Remote Learning

Home Learning


We are using Teams for home learning for Years 1-6 and all children have been issued with a login and password. Please contact the school office if you have any problems.


Tasks for Strawberry class are being uploaded to Tapestry.


Please take a look at the document below for a quick guide to Microsoft Teams.


Policies & Support


We understand that remote learning can prove challenging to us all.  Please see below our Remote Education Policy and our Remote Education Code of Conduct.  If any of your questions are not answered in the 'FAQs' below,  please email the OPS team and we will try to resolve your concerns to the best of our ability.


Families who are not engaging with remote learning may receive a phone call from a member of staff.  The aim of these phone calls is to establish what is causing this lack of engagement and to see if there is anything that school can do to resolve this.  It may be help with logging onto Microsoft Teams, or some additional TA support needed on a particular piece of work.  These are supportive calls - please don't forget that we are here to help.




This area of the website is under construction.  Planning and resources as well as links to Tapestry and Microsoft Teams will be made available shortly.



Frequently Answered Questions regarding Edmodo or Numbots Home Learning


  1. Do I log in as a student or as a parent?                                                                                  Please log in with your child's name, using the class codes you were given in your Home Learning books.  Once you have done this, you can link yourself as a parent to your child. 

  2. Who do I contact if I have a problem?                                                                                 Please call or email the school office.  Please do not contact teacher's directly as they are busy planning lessons, marking and assessing content of work.  The OPS team will be able to help you.

  3. I do not have a printer so how do I complete work and upload it for teachers to see and mark?                                                                                                                           Please use the exercise books you were given, remembering to name and date the top of page.  When the activity is complete, please take a photograph of the page, ensuring that all the work is clear and legible and upload the photo.           

  4. How do I upload work onto the site?                                                                                  Please upload your completed work to the notification of the assignment. Please remember to save your documents before uploading, some documents have been uploaded blank and it is possible this is the cause. Saving and closing down the document before uploading it may prevent this from happening. If you have problems uploading, please check your settings and make sure that Edmodo is a trusted site.

  5. How can we reduce the notifications that appear on the home page and eliminate 'SPAM' type messaging?                                                                                                           Teachers will soon be setting up distinct areas on the class pages to separate the work from  the chat.  It is important for the well being of the children to keep in touch with each other and so appropriate communication is to be encouraged.  The separate areas will enable teachers, parents and pupils to follow threads and comment. 

  6. For best results we recommend accessing the Edmodo site via a desktop or a laptop computer.  It is possible to access using a phone or tablet, but some Microsoft applications don't launch very well from there.
