Remote Learning at Stover
Welcome to Remote Learning at Stover School.
We have created a new page on our website which gathers together all of the information about Remote Learning including links to Google Classrooms and our YouTube Channel for assemblies and PHSE.
The Schools’ Portal provides secure access to a number of online systems,
including Stover Mail, folders and files and a range of online learning platforms including Google Classroom, Kerboodle and Sparxmaths.
A Guide to the School Portal is available on the school website.

They can access their email account at school and at home using our webmail system.

Tapestry builds a very special record of a child’s experiences, development and learning journey through their early years and primary education. Using photos, videos and diary entries, a teacher or early years practitioner, along with the child’s parents, ‘weaves’ the story of the child and how they are growing and developing.
The communication between staff and parents that Tapestry enables, helps build a shared understanding of how every child can reach their full potential, from birth to the end of primary school. The Tapestry online learning journal is also available as an easy-to-use, secure app, meaning capturing key learning moments, and videoing milestones are even easier.

Parents and Carers
The school office remains open for emails and phone calls.
Success at school during this period of uncertainty is a result of a partnership between schools and parents/carers. To achieve, we need help in three main areas:
Please provide pupils with an internet-connected computer or tablet which can be used in a quiet setting with space nearby to write in their textbooks. Not possible? Please contact the school and we will do our best to help.
Ensure you/your child completes their assignments. Please be aware of when homework is set and the due date and make sure all their compulsory questions are completed on time.
Start early in the week so that there is time to ask a teacher.
