Blended Learning

Information for Parents

As Coronavirus continues to impact our lives in many ways, we know that it may further impact your child’s education. If your child is unwell, or has to self-isolate, quarantine following a trip abroad, or in the event of National School Closures, we are committed to making sure that your child can continue their education at home and make progress until it is safe for them to return to school.

Please visit the 'policies' section of this website to read our Blended Learning Policy, which will provide further information about our Blended Learning offer.

Further support can be found on your child's Home Learning page on DB Primary, including video tutorials. If you need further help, please contact the school office. 

Our Blended Learning provision includes participation in Live Sessions. Live sessions are not recorded however two members of staff will always be present during live sessions. 

Please see below for guidance on how to participate in live sessions safely and successfully:

We ask that parents:

  • Ensure that all members of your household are aware that the Zoom session is taking place so that they can behave accordingly.
  • Ensure that children are appropriately dressed for their Zoom session.
  • Ensure that children join the session from an appropriate location – for example, children should not join from bedrooms.
  • Ensure that children, parents, and anyone in the background uses appropriate language only.
  • Ensure that children are ready to join the session on time. Teachers will not wait for children who are late.
  • Ensure that your microphone is muted throughout the session. Questions can be asked via the chat function to avoid lots of people talking over one another.
  • Ensure that children are supervised by an adult throughout the session, and show the qualities of an outstanding learner throughout.
  • Only ask questions that are specific to the learning that is being explained. More general questions or lengthy/multiple questions should be addressed in a separate phone call which you can arrange with the teacher.
  • Ensure that only the child in that particular year group is participating in the Zoom session. Siblings should not participate in one another’s Zoom sessions.
  • Please report any concerns regarding live sessions to the Headteacher. 
  • Do not share videos provided by staff that are intended for use within our school community.
