At Holy Trinity our vision is to be the best we can be: for God, for others and for ourselves. Through our hard work we want our children to acquire the very best in wisdom, knowledge and skills to raise their aspirations, enabling them to grow and flourish as unique and precious children of God. We want to provide a safe and welcoming space where our children learn from our Christian values, live well together and experience ‘life in all its fullness’ (John 10:10).
We intend to ensure that if a child or adult has to learn or teach at home, we uphold our vision by:
● planning a curriculum sequence that allows access to high-quality online and offline resources and teaching videos and that are linked to the school’s curriculum expectations
● giving all pupils access to high quality remote education resources
● selecting the online tools that will be consistently used across the school in order to allow interaction, assessment and feedback and making sure staff are trained in their use
● providing printed resources, such as textbooks and workbooks, for pupils who do not have suitable online access
● recognising that younger pupils and some pupils with SEND may not be able to access remote education without adult support and working with families to deliver a broad and ambitious curriculum
● setting assignments so that pupils have meaningful and ambitious work each day in a number of different subjects
● teaching a planned and well-sequenced curriculum so that knowledge and skills are built incrementally, with a good level of clarity about what is intended to be taught and practised in each subject
● providing frequent, clear explanations of new content, delivered by a teacher in the school or through high-quality curriculum resources or videos
● gauging how well pupils are progressing through the curriculum, using questions and other suitable tasks and set a clear expectation on how regularly teachers will check work
● enabling 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
● planning a programme that is of equivalent length to the core teaching pupils would receive in school, ideally including daily contact with teachers.
