My child has to learn at home. What do we do?

Different scenarios:


If the school has to close to most pupils due to a National Lockdown situation, your child will have access to home learning.


If your child is self-isolating because a member of your household is symptomatic/self-isolating, or if the school or track and trace team has requested them to self-isolate, your child will have access to home learning.


If a parent chooses to keep their child at home, but this is not on medical grounds, the school will not be expected to provide home learning activities for your child.


If your child is self-isolating due to being symptomatic or is generally unwell, they will be unable to complete home learning and this is not expected of them.



What happens each day?

Your child will be given two activities to do each day – one literacy and one numeracy based at a suitable level for your child. These will be uploaded onto their Google classroom (Y4-Y6) or via Seesaw (Foundation Phase and Y3)

The activities will be put on at a set time each day – 9.30am and we expect the children to have completed them by 2pm. Teachers will be able to review their work at the end of the day in preparation for the following day’s activities.


Junior children can complete activities through Google classroom which will be visible to the class teacher. The class teacher will provide feedback and necessary next steps.


Foundation Phase and Y3 should share their activities through Seesaw and HWB emails and comments will be made by the teacher.


All children will have a choice of three further activities to do throughout the week. These activities can be done at your leisure but please send them to the class teacher by Friday of each week. 


'Feel Good Friday'- We will not upload literacy or numeracy activities on Fridays. There will be a selection of practical activities uploaded for you that include things you can do as a family such as a baking, gardening, painting or being outdoors.
