Remote Learning

Our Remote Learning Provision 


In order to ensure that learning is continuous, irrespective of lockdown and self-isolation, Hobbayne has developed the following plan. This plan offers high quality and broad remote learning opportunities with a mix of online and offline resources. Year groups have been kept in bubbles to minimise the number of pupils being isolated at any one time.   We recognise that younger pupils and those with SEND may not be able to access remote education without adult support and so a range of activities will be offered and the remote learning curriculum will be age appropriate. 
We will aim to teach the same curriculum remotely as we do in school wherever possible and appropriate. However, we have needed to make some adaptations in some subjects. For example, (if the science topic requires hands on investigations, we may change the science topic to one from later in the school year that lends itself to being taught remotely through videos, and other information sources. The practical science topic will then be taught when the school reopens.)


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


Nursery - Minimum number of hours each day is 1 hour, teachers will aim to set 1-2 hours of learning each day.
Reception - Minimum number of hours each day is 2 hours, teacher will aim to set 3 hours of work each day.
Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2) - Minimum number of hours each day is 3 hours, teachers will aim to set 3-4 hours of work each day.
Key Stage 2 (Years 3,4,5, and 6)  -  Minimum number of hours each is 4 hours, teachers will aim to set 4-5 hours of work each day.

Online Safety

Behaviour online is expected to be as good as behaviour is in school. The 6Rs are still as important today as ever.

Please be respectful at all times with your teachers and friends when talking and messaging online.

Should you experience or notice online bullying or unwanted comments on TEAMs teaching or via Purple Mash:

  • Please tell a trusted adult in your home
  • Ask the adult to help you communicate this to the school by phoning: 0208 567 6271, or emailing:
  • Don’t be tempted to make unkind remarks in retaliation
  • The school will investigate and let you know they have dealt with it
  • If parents or carers notice unkind or inappropriate comments or behaviours online on our teaching and learning platforms, please get straight in touch with the school

Online learning needs to BE safe and FEEL safe for everyone.
