Re: Remote learning

Dear Parents,

If your child is ill with coronavirus and has to isolate for 10 days, they are entitled to remote education if they are feeling better before their 10 day isolation period is completed.

The class teacher will update the class Padlet (found under the Home Learning tab on the Holy Trinity website) with Maths, Reading and Writing activities.

The government advises that Key Stage 1 should have access to 3 hours’ worth of work per day and Key Stage 2 have access to 4 hours of work. Therefore, in addition to the activities that the teachers provide we encourage your child to use the following websites to supplement their education:

 Oak Academy

The Oak Academy is a free online resource that offers 10,000 free lessons and resources that covers classes from Reception to Year 6.

Follow the link, find the year group your child is in and work through some of the lessons suggested.

BBC bitesize

Bitesize is a free online resource run by the BBC. It provides lessons and resources for all subjects taught on the primary curriculum.

Please be in touch with the class teacher via Dojo if you have any questions.

Kind Regards,

Ms McCleave



What do I do if I do not have the technology to support these online learning resources?

All of the work that is set can be accessed by a normal smart phone. If this is not sufficient, you are welcome to collect a chrome book from the school office.

What does the guidance say?

The government say “Not all people with COVID-19 have symptoms. Where appropriate, you should support those who need to self-isolate because they have tested positive to work or learn from home if they are well enough to do so. Schools subject to the remote education temporary continuity direction are required to provide remote education to pupils covered by the direction where their attendance would be contrary to government guidance or legislation around COVID-19.”

What if my child is too ill to do the work?

Rest! This is not compulsory.
