Remote / Home Learning
From September 2020, we intend to continue to use Showbie as our vehicle for supporting remote (home) learning.
If your child is absent from school for the following reasons:
- your child has been advised to self-isolate because of symptoms or a positive test within the household
- the class bubble has been sent home to self-isolate because of Public Health England guidance
Showbie was used successfully throughout the lockdown and we use it within school and for homework/reading records on a daily basis.
If your child cannot access Showbie for home learning as outlined above, please contact school ASAP. We may be able to help with device or internet connection issues.
From 22nd October, the government have issued a direction that schools provide a remote learning offer to pupils unable to attend school due to corona-related absence.
Please find our offer below. It also acts as our Acceptable User Agreement as we use an online platform - Showbie - to post our home learning resources.
If a parent has any difficulty accessing the home learning, then please contact us on 01772 792573 or on email@example.com
