Remote Learning will be available for when individual children are in isolation due to members of their family being tested and waiting for results , when whole bubbles are in isolation due to their being a positive case in school or if instructed to close by Public Health.
None of these situations are ideal, as the best place for the children to have access to the National Curriculum is in school. Although children learn many things at home, no one is expecting parents/carers to take on the teaching role as it would be done in the classroom, especially when juggling their own family circumstances. Any support that can be given is valued and appreciated.
No family must feel any pressure during these periods away from school as all family circumstances differ tremendously, however we have a responsibility to provide learning opportunities for the children. All we ask, in order for us to work together, is to have open conversations about support and their learning. We would hope that in any of these situations, learning at home would not be for more than two weeks. However it is vital that this learning continues as we do not want our children to miss any more learning time.
If your child is off school because they are poorly....they must rest!
If your child is off school because a member of your household is being tested for COVID and they are well enough to learn, please contact school. Your child's class teacher will then provide work either through the class page/email or for Foundation Stage through Tapestry. They will also complete the Level 1 as detailed in our policy.
If your child is off school because the whole bubble has been sent home then work will be set as detailed in our policy as Level 2 provision. This will be a blended approach and include some online 'live' lessons with the class teacher, details of our approach to this can be found in our policy below.
If school has not had contact with your child for two consecutive days they will make contact to check you are ok and you are able to access everything you need to. If your child has additional needs then your class teacher will email you separately with plans to support them.
