COVID-19 - Pupils required to isolate:

If your child is required to isolate due to the COVID-19 pandemic, home learning tasks will be shared by your child's class teacher using Google Classroom. Please see below for more information regarding home learning for pupils in isolation.

Pupils Isolating as a result of symptoms of the virus:

If your child is unable to attend school becuase they themselves are presenting with symptoms of the virus, no home learning tasks will be set.  The school will classify your child as being unwell.  If during their 10 day isolation period, your child's health improves and you deem that they are well and able to complete home learning tasks, we would ask that you contact the school office.  A message will be sent to your child's class teacher and home learning tasks will be uploaded on to Google Classroom within 24 hours of initial contact being made.  It is important that any home learning tasks completed are returned via Google Classroom for teacher assessment and feedback.

Pupils isolating as a result of a family/household member testing positive/presenting with symptoms:

If your child is unable to attend school as a result of a family/household member testing positive for the virus or presenting with symptoms, home learning will be uploaded to Google Classroom within 24 hours of contact being made.  Your child will be expected to complete all home learning tasks set and return them via Google Classroom for teacher assessment and feedback.  

All home learning tasks set will be taken from the curriculum requirements delivered in school.
