At Crossley Hall we recognise the challenges that families have faced, and continue to face during this pandemic and we continue to endeavour to support you with your children’s education, whether on our school site or when learning at home. During this time, we endeavour to provide the highest quality learning opportunities for ALL our pupils.
We all know that keeping children in good routines and continuing with regular learning during the period that schools are closed, is of great importance, as this will reduce the impact of school closures on children’s education, as well as their mental health and wellbeing.
We simply cannot deliver the curriculum as we had intended whilst school or classes are closed. If this were possible, we would have no need for schools. However, we understand that everyone’s circumstances at home will be different. Some families have one child to support while others have several. Some families have one device to share while others may have more – and some things may work differently on different devices. Some parents will have plenty of time to help their children learn, while others will be working from home and may have much less time and some children will be able to work more independently than others or need greater challenge.
With this in mind, we offer a variety of daily remote-learning activities as per government guidelines but remain understanding of our families’ personal circumstances. We appreciate that some families won’t be able to engage with the full timetable, and in this case suggest they focus on key learning priorities to try to reduce the impact on children’s core Maths and English skills. If you are at all in doubt, please speak to your child’s class teacher, who can be contacted via the school office or through our dedicated year group email addresses.

For details of what children will be learning through our Remote Curriculum during the second half of the spring term, please click here. This plans has been created by leaders and class teachers in partnership and consideration has been given to how children will continue to learn as the national lockdown is lifted.
Our remote learning platform is Google Classroom. Our staff are becoming more skilled will using this platform and will be able to help you. We have created some guidance for parents to help them use Google Classroom at home. You can read it here.
The activities provided each week for remote learning are enough to keep children busy at home. However, should you find you are looking for something extra to do, we have provided you with some extra online learning links below.
