Where a class, group or small number of pupils need to self-isolate, or there is a local lockdown requiring children to remain at home, schools are expected to have the capacity to offer immediate remote education.
We have been busy planning this to ensure we are ready to support children with their learning at home in the case of individual, class or whole school isolation.
We want to ensure that self-isolation doesn’t result in children falling behind in their learning or developing gaps in their knowledge. The work they can access from home should be set by their class teacher in line with current learning to enable children to continue to make progress in line with their peers and work towards meeting/exceeding their age related expectations (AGE) We understand that this is an ambitious aim which may not always be possible if we have lots of staff absence but we will do all we can to minimise loss of learning and the amount of catch up required when an individual or whole class returns to school following self-isolation.
The Remote Learning policy sets out the expectations for staff, children and parents if an individual, whole class or the whole school has to self-isolate or there is a local/national lockdown. You can view this by clicking on the lick below.
