Remote Education

Remote Education will be provided for those children who test positive via a PCR test but are well enough to learn. If your child has tested positive and is unwell, then there is no expectation that they will complete any Remote Education. We require the parent or carer to inform the school when their child is well enough to commence Remote Education. We will use MS Teams to provide Remote Education.

Curriculum

Where possible, the Remote Education your child receives will reflect the learning in the classroom – leading to a broad and balanced curriculum, with no loss of learning. The lessons will be shared on the discussion wall of their MS Team and the resources placed into the Files part of MS Teams.

Primary schools are advised to provide a minimum daily average of:

3 hours remote provision (teaching and independent work) for pupils in Reception and Key Stage 1, and 4 hours remote provision (teaching and independent work) for pupils in Key Stage 2.
