Learning At Home Due To Covid-19 Related Absence

Schools are required to provide daily home learning activities for children who are not at school for reasons related to Covid-19. Whenever a child is off for covid related reasons, the class teacher will upload new learning resources to the relevant year group blog at the end of each school day.  You can find the blogs HERE.

The school is also required to monitor home learning.  Information about how to share learning activities with teachers can be found below, along with further resources for learning at home.

 If you have trouble accessing any of these online resources, or have any questions about your child’s learning, please contact the school office.
