Remote learning & COVID-19 information

In line with Government guidance, we have developed contingency plans for blended and remote learning, should our pupils need to access this due to having to self-isolate. We aim to ensure that there is alignment as far as possible between face-to-face and remote education, so that should pupils need to self-isolate, they can transition smoothly back into the classroom having followed the same curriculum sequence and content as their peers.

Our approach makes use of three tiers of remote learning which are dependent on two factors:

  • The amount of time that a pupil is having to isolate for (approximately 24 - 48 hours or 10 - 14 days) and, 
  • Whether an individual pupil or a whole class bubble is having to isolate at home. 

For more information about our tiered approach, please read the document below titled, 'Our tiered approach to blended learning - information for parents'.

If a child is ill, we would not expect them to complete remote learning. With rest, they are more likely to have a speedy recovery and be able to return to school more quickly. 

Google classroom & Tapestry can only be accessed by people with a Google Classroom and Tapestry account and we respectively ask that parents do not record their screens and upload to another platform.
