– Learning From Home –
During lockdown, pupils will continue their learning from home each day. This will take place in virtual classrooms. These virtual classrooms use Microsoft Teams.
Pupils will have access to a range of different learning resources, support materials, activities and additional tasks. This means that all pupils can will have the support they need to continue to make fantastic progress while learning from home.
Pupils will be expected to attend all of their sessions in the virtual classroom and to share their learning with their teacher. Pupils may be learning from home, but their learning is just as important as if they were in the classroom in school.

HOW DO I REQUEST CRITICAL WORKER CHILDCARE?
Children should only attend school for critical worker childcare if there is no suitable alternative and only on essential days. Pupils who attend critical worker childcare in school will be using computers to join virtual classrooms and access the online curriculum alongside their peers. They will be supervised by an adult, but they will access the same learning in the same way as those learning from home.
If you require a critical worker childcare please contact the school.
