Remote Learning

Remote Learning Arrangements

Archbishop Wake CE Primary provides remote learning to all children who are unable to attend school because they are required to isolate, or in the event of school closure due to the pandemic.


The school uses both the Tapestry (EYFS / Y1 / Y2) and Microsoft Teams platforms (Y3 - Y6) to provide a secure space for children to access the learning set by the teacher. Learning for the week is placed on to the class Tapestry/Teams pages at the start of every week - and in some cases, daily. This enables children to access the learning as required.


To access the Tapestry account, parents/carers have been provided with a secure Tapestry account email address and password.


Microsoft Teams children have been provided with a Microsoft 365 account email address and password.


Parents/Carers have been provided with information on how to log on to Tapestry and Microsoft 365 accounts and provided with information on how to access Teams. Lessons have taken place in school which have enabled children to access their Teams accounts.


If there are any issues with accessing any remote / home learning, please contact your child's class teacher using the class email addresses that have been published.
