Remote Learning

If pupils spend time away from school during the term as a result of extended illness or because they have significant medical needs and are unable to access school, they will receive a personalised remote learning offer. 

Each pupil’s teacher will work with parents to devise a remote learning curriculum that is right for them but it is likely to include a combination of online sessions, learning tasks presented through online platforms such as Google Classroom and physical resources sent home.

Whilst pupils may not be physically in school, our teachers, support staff and Family Support Team are always on-hand to support pupils and their families in whichever way they need.
