Home learning for extended school closures or self-isolation at South Rise Primary School

It is important that children have the opportunity to continue their learning when they are unable to be in school and as such, we have provided guidelines and resources to support children to engage meaningfully in their education whilst at home. 

Our home learning resources are intended to support parents with their children’s learning at home but are not compulsory. We understand that parents are best placed to consider whether and how children use them. We hope you find them useful.

We advise that children do not spend longer than an hour for EYFS and KS1 and an hour and a half online. Therefore, a balance of paper and online activities is provided.

If your child does not have access to technology at home, please contact the school and we will be able to provide a paper pack.

The resources are updated weekly and cover:

  • Practice of key fluency skills on a daily basis such as: spellings (high frequency words), reading, times-tables and phonics for younger children.

  • English, maths and humanities learning across the week.

Parents and children can access their home learning through the online apps Showbie and Tapestry.

Children in KS1 and 2 will be sent learning via ‘Showbie’. The children all have a username and login in their Home Learning Journals. A video demonstrating how to login and use Showbie will be emailed to all parents as soon as possible.

Children in EYFS will be sent learning and ideas for activities at home via Tapestry. All parents and carers of children in Reception and Nursery should have emails and logins for this online app. If you are unable to login, please contact the school.

We aim to have all this information emailed to you as soon as possible.

Learning that anything is possible

South Rise Primary School aims to be an outstanding, values-based school at the heart of our culturally diverse community. Through innovative practice we strive for excellence, enabling our children to achieve their highest potential. We aspire to develop great thinkers who demonstrate curiosity, resilience and embrace challenge. We aim to develop confident, independent individuals who are fully prepared for life in modern Britain.

Hazel Brown – Head Teacher

South Rise Primary School is a values based learning community, committed to the education of the whole child. We are always seeking new and creative ways of engaging children in learning experiences that motivate and entice them to deepen their understanding and develop a lifelong love of learning. We provide a broad and balanced curriculum with creative contexts providing the stimulus to engage children in quality experiences. We strive to achieve high academic standards for all children and believe this is best achieved through teaching that is engaging, innovative and personalised to children’s needs.

We are committed to children valuing learning both in and out of school, providing an extensive annual programme of educational visits and residential school journeys.  We have a very close relationship with our community and always listen to the views and desires of children and parents so that we can keep improving and enhancing all that we do. We have a community room for parents to use at the beginning and end of the day and also hold monthly coffee mornings so that parents can explore ideas with the Executive Headteacher and Head of School. We survey parents twice a year to gain their views and ideas for developments and consult with pupils regularly to ensure they have a central voice in school self-evaluation.

We are part of The Compass Partnership of Schools, an innovative and forward-thinking group of schools comprising of Alderwood, Deansfield, Halstow, Horn Park, South Rise, Willow Dene and Wingfield.  In July 2017, we converted to multi-academy trust status, further strengthening and securing our unique partnership. The Partnership offers immense opportunities to develop the quality of provision, sharing of good practice and professional growth.
