All children who remain at home will have FULL access to remote learning, including all subject areas (English, Maths, Science, History etc). This will be via the Class Dojo/Purple Mash platform. If you DO NOT have access to the internet or appropriate technology such as a laptop or ipad/tablet, please contact the office tomorrow morning on the above telephone number so that we can arrange all necessary resources for your child to access the same learning as their peers. The online learning will take place daily, during school hours and will be led by a teacher from the same year group. We will be providing feedback to your child on work completed. Staff from your child’s year group will be contacting the children from within their classes via telephone, to conduct regular well-being checks. Please ensure we are able to speak directly to your child.
