Remote Learning during the Covid-19 Pandemic

Remote Learning Policy

Where can we access learning resources if my child is self-isolating or their bubble is closed?

Children can access online learning and tasks set by their teacher in the Year Group Remote Learning  page via their dB login. If your child does not have access to the internet, please contact the school office to request a paper pack of work.

Can we contact the class teacher?

Yes - your child can contact them via dB emails. Feel free to ask questions, send work or let them know how you are! 

How do we help our children?

The Department for Education have produced guidance for parents and carers about supporting younger children, primary age children and children with SEND.

What online resources can I use to support my child's learning?

There are so many excellent resources available that it might become rather overwhelming. We would always direct you firstly to the links on your child's dB year group remote learning page but the ones below may also be of use.
