As a school we have revised our remote learning policy should we encounter bubbles and/or individual children having to self-isolate in the coming weeks and months. We want to be able to offer immediate remote education to all children who are unable to attend school.
We want to ensure that clear expectations are communicated to you as to what the children and teachers will do each day.
We want new learning to take place each day, and that there is regular contact between teachers and their classes at the end of the day between 3-3.30pm.
