Remote Learning

Class teachers are providing remote learning for all children who cannot attend school. Each day you will recieve links to: 

  • a video of a phonics lesson created by our teachers
  • a link to a literacy lesson on Oak National Academy
  • a link to a maths lesson/ activity
  • a link to a lesson in another subject

Teachers will respond daily (usually in the afternoons), to all emails and observations on Evidence Me to answer questions and provide feedback on children's learning.

Teachers will also include your child in a small group Zoom session once a week, or alternatively phone to speak to them to keep in contact.

We will host whole school Zoom assemblies on Fridays. 

Symptoms of coronavirus in children

The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • a high temperature
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot, for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours
  • a loss or change to sense of smell or taste – this means they cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

What to do if your child has symptoms

If your child has any of the main symptoms of coronavirus:

  1. Get a test to check if they have coronavirus as soon as possible.
  2. Stay at home and do not have visitors until you get the test result – only leave your home to have a test.

Anyone you live with, and anyone in your support bubble, must also stay at home until you get the result.

To book at test phone 119 or visit the NHS website
