Distance Learning

Update: Spring term 2021

We are focused on the education and SEND provision for all of our pupils here at Hebden Green.  

We ensure that our pupils receive a distance learning offer that is aligned to the curriculum and to every child's targets identified within their EHCP.

 

The Distance Learning team have worked together to plan the provision for every child’s education.

Below is an outline of our Distance Learning offer and details of how we can support you and your son/daughter during this period. 

Distance Learning offer to pupils will receive: 

  • A weekly/daily overview of the learning activities and resources to access their learning 
  • A delivery of paper-based resources, via post, for that week’s learning if parents have requested them  
  • A twice weekly/daily email from their Distance Learning teacher to feedback on their learning outcomes and identify any issues they may be encountering  
  • Regular, live/virtual teaching and wellbeing sessions online with their Distance Learning teacher 
  • Links to online teaching resources and/or pre-recorded learning materials suitable for your son/daughter

We will continue to:
