Remote Learning

Remote Learning is the learning that takes place at home when a child is unable to physically come to school. This may be because they have tested positive for Covid-19 but are well and able to complete schoolwork, because of local or national restrictions or because they are having to isolate. 


Our main approach to Remote Learning is the use of Google Classroom where we can set your child work that matches what we are doing in school. We can provide your child with a laptop to complete this work if you do not have a suitable device once you have completed a loan agreement. If accessing work electronically is difficult, we can also offer a paper pack of learning to ensure that your child does not miss out.


If your child is unable to come to school because of a Covid related reason, a member of the leadership team or the school office will be in touch to discuss the best way to support your child to learn from home. 


We want Remote Learning to be successful for your child so please contact your child's teacher or the School Office if you have any questions, comments or need our support. 


Some of our Parent's Feedback on our Remote Learning Offer:


"The work that is supplied is very diverse and set at a good level. It is challenging but easy for the children to succeed and therefore be motivated to continue and complete more."


"I’m finding this home schooling much better than the previous time. Google classroom has been a much better way of home schooling and my daughter is actually doing all the work this time. I also think the fact teachers are phoning to make sure there are not any problems is really good too and a great support so thank you all"



"We have had a few obstacles to overcome but the support we have had from the teacher has been amazing"   


"Hi all, thank you so much for all your support with this remote learning of the children, telephoning the parents/ carers to see how the children coping is much appreciated."
