Home Learning Guide

Context

School opened to all pupils in September 2020.  There is now a possibility that individual pupils, groups or bubbles of pupils, or potentially the whole school, will need to access their learning remotely. 

We are currently in the process of finalising our approach to remote learning to ensure that pupils continue to learn and make progress.  In planning for remote learning, there are four possible scenarios to consider:

Scenario 1- A child or member of the household is unwell with symptoms, requiring the whole household to isolate whilst they await a test/results.

Scenario 2- A child has tested positive and the pupil must isolate for 10 days (the rest of their household for 14 days) OR a member of the child’s household has tested positive and the child must isolate for 14 days.  This also includes a child being identified as a close contact of someone outside of school and having to isolate for 14 days.

Scenario 3- A child or staff member has tested positive and, following advice from Public Health, the bubble has been requested to isolate for 14 days.

Scenario 4- There is a full school closure (Tier 4) where the majority of pupils are asked to stay at home (except for pupils of key workers and vulnerable children). 

The document below outlines the school responsibilities, the child’s responsibilities and the parent/carer responsibilities in the event of Scenario 1 and 2.
