The Oak National Academy is an online classroom and resource hub created by teachers.
You will find a bank of high-quality, sequenced video lessons and resources to support children's learning. The lessons cover a range of subjects including maths, English, art and languages.
Some of these may complement the teaching themes set by staff until school re-opens however others may be lessons you would find both interesting and enjoyable. Every lesson is free to use.

This information is intended to provide clarity and transparency to parents or carers about what to expect from remote education where national or local restrictions require entire cohorts (or bubbles) to remain at home.
For details of what to expect where individual pupils are self-isolating, please see the final section of this page.
Following the first few days of remote education, will my child be taught broadly the same curriculum as they would if they were in school?
How long can I expect work set by the school to take my child each day?
We expect that remote education (including remote teaching and independent work) will take pupils broadly the following number of hours each day:
Key Stage 1
There is no statutory guidelines however we have planned approximately 3 hours daily
3 hours daily minimum
How will my child access any online remote education you are providing?
All our remote learning is available on the school website www.herne-infant.kent.sch.uk
Each Year Group has its own page with a weekly overview, sections for each subject area and suggested resources and supporting websites
We have directed parents to use a Playstation, Xbox or Amazon Firestick if they do not have access to a computer, tablet or phone.
If my child does not have digital or online access at home, how will you support them to access remote education?
We recognise that some pupils may not have suitable online access at home. We take the following approaches to support those pupils to access remote education:
How will my child be taught remotely?
We use a combination of the following approaches to teach pupils remotely:
What are your expectations for my child’s engagement and the support that we as parents and carers should provide at home?
How will you check whether my child is engaging with their work and how will I be informed if there are concerns?
How will you assess my child’s work and progress?
How will you work with me to help my child who needs additional support from adults at home to access remote education?
We recognise that some pupils, for example some pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), may not be able to access remote education without support from adults at home. We acknowledge the difficulties this may place on families, and we will work with parents and carers to support those pupils in the following ways:
Where individual pupils need to self-isolate but the majority of their peer group remains in school, how remote education is provided will likely differ from the approach for whole groups. This is due to the challenges of teaching pupils both at home and in school.
If my child is not in school because they are self-isolating, how will their remote education differ from the approaches described above?
Individual pupils self-isolating will be taught a planned and well-sequenced curriculum with meaningful and ambitious work each day in a number of different subjects.
This will be similar to the above and will be monitored by SLT.
