High Park School
Remote Education Provision
The remote curriculum: what is taught to pupils at home?
Our remote learning offer is personalised to our pupils' needs and the way they access learning. We recognise the challenges home learning brings for our families and our pupils. The majority of our pupils find change extremely difficult to manage and accessing activities linked to school at home can present many challenges. We have families spread across the Bradford district and a significant number of our families have more than one child with additional needs.
Teachers and leaders of learning work closely with parents and carers to create tailored provision to support their child’s individual needs within the home. The tailored provision is developed with parents and carers during their weekly contact.
Teachers and leaders of learning have made weekly contact with parents and carers using their preferred method of communication, for example a phone call, teams call, email or doorstep visit.
This has provided the opportunity to:
Check on the pupil’s and family's wellbeing
Discuss what the pupil is currently engaging in at home
Share individual learning intentions linked to their progress in provision (PIP)targets which is linked to their EHCP targets and identify possible links to home learning
Celebrate any progress made!
Discuss any concerns or changes in behaviour
Identify any support or advice/ resources needed to support learning and wellbeing at home
Identify next steps or ideas for the following week
Accessing remote education

Engagement and Feedback
Parents and careers are asked to provide verbal feedback regarding the resources and activities sent home during their weekly contact. They are encouraged to send in photographs and videos of home learning. This information is then shared with the pupils’ class team and contributes to each pupil's pupil progress file and future progress in provision (PIP) targets and planning.
