Every school is expected to publish guidance for parents/carers in the event of 'remote learning' becoming a necessity for the school.
In recent times this has been linked, almost exclusively, to the COVID pandemic and although we are aware that the pandemic has apparently 'passed' we are also very aware that local outbreaks may still be a reality for schools and communities in the futre.
Therefore, we have maintained this website page and will use it, and develop it, as necessary.
The information in this Plan/Policy is intended to provide clarity and transparency to pupils and parents or carers about what to expect from remote education.
This plan will be applied in the following instances:
· An individual is self-isolating because of a positive test within the household;
· A group of children (‘bubble’) are self-isolating because of a case of coronavirus in the class;
· There is a local or national Lockdown of school due to an increase in the R number and transmission rates as determined by Public health England and the Government
The plan complies with the expectations and principles outlined in the DFE document Guidance for Full Opening of Schools.
