Learning at home
Our remote learning strategy is published
So that pupils and their parents know what to expect from the school if they need to self-isolate, or where national or local restrictions require them to remain at home, we are publishing information about our remote education provision on our website.
Please spend a few minutes reading our remote learning strategy.
At Cuckoo and Woodpecker Hall Academies our aim is to ensure:
• All children have access to the internet when this becomes more freely available through government initiatives.
• All families have at least one device for home learning and where possible all children have their own device.
• Our online opportunities provide a learning experience that is appealing and that delivers successful learning outcomes.
We welcome feedback at all times from our families about how we can improve what we are doing.

The government has announced that primary schools in Tier 4 areas, where coronavirus rates are particularly high, will remain closed until at least Monday, 18 January. As we are in one of these areas our school buildings will remain closed. However, school learning will take place for all children and remote learning will start from Tuesday 5th January 2021.
Remote learning expectations
Every day at 9am, all children from Reception to Year 6 will be expected to log onto a Zoom call for registration. Any children who do not log on will be contacted by the school. During this Zoom meeting, teachers will go through the learning that will be set for that day. Learning will cover all areas of the curriculum just like a normal school day and will be differentiated and set accordingly on DB Primary. Children will then have the rest of the morning to complete and upload their work back onto DB Primary.
DB Primary is one of the UK's leading online learning platforms. Its is easy for children to use and for parents to help with learning at home. All tasks can be set and completed within DB Primary. Children are able to access a variety of learning activities that are directly linked to the National Curriculum.
DB Primary is to be used by all children from Reception to Year 6. Nursery children will have their learning work set separately. See below.
All children have been given a login. Once your child logs in, they will be able to see
work that has been added for them to complete.
In addition to this, your child can also access a range of self-learning activities.
you have any queries relating to DB Primary, including how to get your
login details, please email us with your child's name, year group and
the school they go to firstname.lastname@example.org If you click on the yellow
whistle on the top left corner of the DB Primary screen, you can send a
message to the class teacher.
