Schools have a legal obligation to provide remote education for children if they are absent from school due to the Covid 19 pandemic. Remote education is defined as any learning that happens outside of the classroom, with the teacher not present in the same location as the pupils. This includes both digital and non-digital remote solutions.
For details of our remote learning systems please see our Remote Learning Statement. You will find information regarding the education that will be provided to children in the event of a bubble / school closure and for those individual children isolating due to contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid 19.
If you have any questions please contact school as we will be happy to help.
Below you will find some general websites and apps to support your children learning from home. These can be used to supplement the remote learning provided by school.
