Self-isolating Pupils

Remote Education for self-isolating pupils 

What is Remote Learning?

Remote learning provides an opportunity for students and teachers to remain connected and engaged with the content of what is being learnt in school, while they work from their homes. Opportunities for remote learning are typically linked to emergency situations that pose a threat to student safety.

 

When may Remote Learning apply during the COVID-19 Restrictions?

If you and your child/children are required to self-isolate due to presenting symptoms, awaiting test results or as a result of contact tracing. 

 

How will my child access a remote learning curriculum? 

All work and contact will be made through our child's Class Dojo page and portfolio. Here, tasks will be set which follow the areas of the National Curriculum which is being taught in school. 

 

In addition, your child may be required to access the following sites:
