New Government legislation now requires schools to provide 'immediate access to remote education' for all pupils of statutory school age in the event of children not being able to attend due to Covid related issues. We recognise that there are 3 scenarios that would require this -

  1. A child is isolating whilst they await test results after displaying symptoms
  2. A child is isolating due to testing positive or from being in close contact with someone who has tested positive
  3. A class/bubble has needed to close following a positive test result in school.

For scenarios 1 & 2, please see the documents below to access year group specific learning tasks to complete at home. It is recommended that a minimum of 3 hours per day is completed, depending on the age of your child.  Obviously, with scenarios 1 & 2, staff will be continuing to teach classes in school so although we would ask that children’s completed work be uploaded to Tapestry or Seesaw, staff will not be able to respond to this immediately. We will not be providing tasks for Nursery and 2's in these scenarios.

In the event of scenario 3, where a whole class or bubble are isolating (including Nursery and 2's), staff will post work daily via the home school apps and will then be available to give feedback during the school day.

We do ask however that parents do not contact staff via the home school apps or via any other social media platforms after 5pm. Our staff work incredibly hard and need and deserve time with their families in the evenings and at weekends.

Remote Learning Tasks



For a daily maths lesson for each year group visit -


READING - it is vital to keep up your child's daily reading regardless of which year group they are in.

2 year olds and Nursery children - share story books daily and encourage your child to talk about the story and the pictures. If they can, get them to retell the story or act out parts.There are many books for younger children now available online if you run out of ones at home.

For children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 who usually do a daily Read, Write Inc session, please visit  If you are unsure which speed sounds your child is on, please message their teacher via Tapestry or SeeSaw.

For children in Y3 and 4 (and Y5&6 if they want to) - please continue to do your accelerated reader quizzes when you have finished a book. The quizzes can be accessed at

For children in Y5 & 6 -please complete your ReadingPlus online work including the vocabulary sections.

PSHE - Below you will find resources that will support your child's personal, social, health and economic education. The idea of 'Picture News' is that the poster and resources prompt thought and discussion around a range of topics. The children are encouraged to think about the weekly topic from lots of different view points. Some of these resources are aimed at the older pupils in school but can be adapted for the younger ones too.

Do we think people will travel less in the future?

Whose job is it to protect animals in the wild?
