Remote Learning

Remote education - important information for parents


The Government has asked schools to publish on their websites key information relating to their provision of remote education, in support of pupils who may need to isolate during the pandemic.

 

The information included in the St Francis website is modelled around the Government’s own template, which aligns to the expectations for remote education found here:
https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/actions-for-schools-during-the-coronavirus-outbreak/guidance-for-full-opening-schools#res


This ensures that schools adhere to the Secretary of State’s Temporary Continuity Direction issued on 1st October 2020.


Schools will adapt the template, so that it is relevant to their particular circumstances; however you can view the original template here:
https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/providing-remote-education-information-to-parents-template


Please note that this published information provides a foundation for information to parents regarding remote learning; additional information will be shared on top of this, so that parents and pupils can be well prepared to access the learning they need in the event of further isolations. 


There is separate information relating to the isolation of whole groups (‘bubbles’) and also individuals. 
 

The remote curriculum: what is taught to pupils at home


A pupil’s first day or two of being educated remotely might look different from our standard approach, while we take all necessary actions to prepare for a longer period of remote teaching.
