HOME LEARNING

Please click below for the home learning offer if your child is absent due to the following reasons:

They are self-isolating due to:
• a positive COVID test for themselves
• having to quarantine

Home learning will be sent home in packs or provided on See Saw, depending on the child’s circumstances.

The school will:

  • – Provide sufficient work to ensure children are able to continue learning when at home during term time.
  • – Provide a suggested timetable for parents to follow if they wish.
  • – Set work sufficient for each week.
  • – Use the school website to post work so all families who are able to, can access.
  • – Print packs out weekly for those families who are unable to access the internet or a printer.
  • – Check in weekly on each child to see how they are and how they are finding the work.
  • – Check more vulnerable children and families twice a week.

Parents will [assuming child and parent are well]:

  • – Find time and space for the child to do the work set by following the suggested timetable
  • – Support the children in their work if necessary.
  • – Ensure the children are doing the work to the best of their ability.
