Remote Learning for Covid-19 absence

If a child is absent because they have tested positive for Covid-19, we will provide home-learning from the end of the first day of absence.  This will contain a mixture of  online and offline activities.  Details of this will be sent to parents via Schoolcomms.  Learning tasks and materials will be uploaded at the end of each day onto Google Classroom for children to access using their usual Google Classroom login details.  Children are only expected to complete these home learning tasks if they are well enough to work.

More information about remote learning can be found here.

You must not send any child in to school if they are displaying the symptoms of Covid-19. Please keep them off school and book a PCR test. If your child has sickness or diarrhoea they must be kept off school for 48 hours after the last bout of illness.
