Curriculum Information for Parents and Carers

At Orchard Meadow we consider the school community one big family and each class a smaller 'class family'. This language makes pupils feel safe and supported and we strive to share this ethos with parents and all members of the wider community. This aligns with our values and the Conscious Discipline approach. 

We hope your child can be with us in school every day, but when an exceptional circumstance means this is not possible, we will help you to ensure learning continues at home.  

If your child is unable to be in school with us, but is well enough to learn, please follow the following steps: 

  • Contact teh school office following the usual absence procedure. The office staff will make your child’s class teacher aware. They will be able to provide you with a suggested timetable for your child’s learning. Please do not hesitate to email or ring the school if you have any questions.  

  • Look at our curriculum page. Each subject has a curriculum overview, where you will be able to see what your child should be learning.  

There are many fantastic websites which your child can access easily to support them with their learning at home: 

  • BBC Bitesize You will find great videos to support learning across a range of subjects 

  • Oak Academy  has a wide range of lessons available for all curriculum subjects.  


How can parents support their children with remote learning? 

To best support your child’s online learning and progress, we recommend you do the following: 

  • Engage with and respond to all communication from the school. This includes reading all emails and texts that are sent to parents and answering calls. 

  • Ensure your child is ready to learn before the start of the school day. This includes making sure your child is awake, has had breakfast and their equipment ready to start learning at 9.00 am 

  • Make sure your child has a distraction-free environment to learn in. This can include keeping background noises to a minimum. 

  • Check your child’s engagement with their learning. Asking your child the following questions will help you connect with what they are learning.  

  • What have you been learning about today? 

  • Can you show me the learning you are most proud of? 

  • What learning will you be doing next?
