Remote learning is planned for weekly in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. This links closely to the learning that is happening in school.

Parents of children who are not at school due to Covid restrictions will receive remote learning planning via email in the form of a weekly timetable. Links to activities and resources will be included on the timetable wherever you see the words 'click here'.

The timetable mirrors a school day as closely as possible, ensuring consistency between home and school.

Remote learning requires access to the internet and a suitable device, such as a tablet or laptop. If you do not have a suitable device then please contact the school office or Mrs Walker via Class Dojo and we will be able to help you with this.
