Remote Learning


Whilst we hope that we will not return to 'remote' learning due to the pandemic, it is important for our families to understand the expectations around remote learning - also sometimes called 'distance' or 'home' learning.  Should we be required to close either part of the school or the whole school again, the following information may help support you and your child(ren).   


If you have any questions about your child's remote learning, please contact your teacher via the school platform (Tapestry or Teams) or if you have a more general question, please feel free to contact our school office and we will do our best to help you.


If learning from home, the children will be spending more time online doing their school work, playing games or watching videos. Technology is hugely valuable for education, as well as a way to keep in touch with friends and family.  To help support you with their online safety, below are a couple of links to some useful newsletters.  Please also visit our Online Safety page (click here) on this website.
