Covid-19 Remote Learning Contingency Plan

Greatstone Primary School Remote Learning Contingency Plan

Please find below our Remote Learning Contingency Plan, if you would like to download a copy please click the following button.

We have all now returned to full-time education and we couldn’t be happier to have our children back 🙂

Although we hope that the majority of our children will now have an uninterrupted return to school, there is still the possibility that an individual child, a class bubble, or indeed the whole school, will need to self-isolate for a period of time.

If this becomes the case, we have worked hard to put a plan in place for remote learning so that all children can continue with their education herunterladen.

This meets the expectations set out in the DfE guidance ‘Remote Education Support’

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/remote-education-during-coronavirus-covid-19

If a child does not have access to a computer/laptop and/or the internet, we will do all it can to support children and will provide paper packs of learning. Please let us know if this is the case for your child.

Below details how we plan to ensure that all children are able to continue with their education across a variety of scenarios which include:

  • An individual child is isolating due to track and trace or a positive case within their household for 14 days
  • A child is at home due their clinically extremely medical needs
  • A school class/es have had to close or the whole school has closed.
