Blended learning strategy and remote learning review
At North Star Community Trust we are committed to providing high quality blended learning inside and outside of the classroom for all children.
• All children have access to the internet, when this becomes more freely available through government initiatives.
• All families have at least one device for home learning and where possible all children have their own device.
• Our online opportunities provide a learning experience that is appealing and delivers successful learning outcomes and a curriculum that follows classroom learning.
We welcome feedback at all times from our families about how we can improve what we are doing.

Review of remote education published
A framework to help schools identify strengths and areas for improvement in their remote education provision was devised by the government.
So that pupils and their parents know what to expect from the school
if they need to self-isolate, or where national or local restrictions
require them to remain at home, we are publishing information about our
remote education provision on our website.
In January 2021 the government produced a new framework to support schools in England to identify the strengths and areas for improvement in their remote education provision.
This framework aims to help schools to:
• identify the strengths and areas for improvement in their school or trust’s remote education provision
• find resources (including training), guidance and networks to help them improve their provision
During January 2021 we undertook our review.

Home learning survey - please help us.
We are currently carrying out a comprehensive survey of our families to see how we can further improve on the way we provide home learning, as well as finding out your latest views on what is working, what can be done better, what issues you are experiencing and what types of extra support you may need.
The survey has questions for parents and carers, and for children.
You can complete the survey here.
