In September 2020, all our classes returned to full-time education following the Covid-19 closure in March 2020.
During the Autumn term 2020 – 2021, three classes were forced to close due to positive Covid-19 cases. While these children could not attend school, we developed and refined our remote learning offer so that all children could continue with their education. Our remote learning meets the expectations set out in the DfE guidance ‘Remote Education Support’
Now that the nation has moved into Lockdown once more, school is open only to children of critical workers and children deemed vulnerable. Children in school and children learning at home follow the same curriculum and have equal access to their class teacher
If a child learning at home does not have access to a computer/laptop and/or the internet, the school will do all it can to support them and will provide paper packs of learning. Where possible, remote devices (eg, laptops) and/or 4G connections will be sought, particularly for disadvantaged children. Parents will be reminded to make the school aware of any barriers to accessing remote learning. Paper copies will still be available.
When we locked down in April, Remote Learning was something for the future. The staff have worked tirelessly in ensuring that now the majority of children are learning from home, that children’s learning continues.
