Home Learning

As the Coronavirus continues to disrupt your child's learning through households isolating or bubble closure we will continue to provide remote learning. We would like you to send in completed work via SeeSaw and your teachers will be phoning regularly to support you with any issues.  We do not want any pupil to fall behind with their learning, please help us support your child at this uncertain time. 


If your child's class bubble closes or your child has to isolate because someone in your household has tested positive

  • Your class teacher will contact you by telephone to ensure you know what to do during remote learning.
  • Your child will be expected to complete remote learning and upload it to their teacher every day.
  • If you do not have internet access please contact the school office to arrange support/discuss alternative arrangements for sending in work.
  • Any pupil failing to upload work will be marked as absent. 
  • If your child is ill and cannot complete home learning please telephone the school to inform us of their absence
  • Any pupils failing to complete home learning or submitting sub-standard work will receive a follow up call from their class teacher
