Remote Learning/ Learning at home
The Remote Learning Policy is here: Remote Education Policy 2020
The policy outlines St George’s approach to remote learning, links to useful websites and guidance.
This policy also links to useful sites but more are suggested below.
As stated in the policy all Remote Learning will take place via the Class Dojo. All children have been provided with parent login details and information as how to access the Dojo. If you require any technical support please contact Mr.Wilson via the school office email account firstname.lastname@example.org or via the messaging system within the Dojo and he will respond to you as soon as possible. All plans and learning activities are posted on the Dojo weekly and updated daily with important information, tips and ideas. Below are the letters sent out regarding Remote Learning and a help sheet for parents when using the Dojo.
