Remote education for self-isolating pupils

Where individual pupils need to self-isolate but the majority of their peer group remains in school, the delivery of remote education will follow the same principles but may differ slightly in the approach. This is due to the challenges of teaching pupils both at home and in school.

If my child is not in school because they are self-isolating, how will their remote education differ from the approaches described above?

Broadly speaking, remote learning where children need to self-isolate individually will be very similar to that which is described above. Work will still be uploaded to Tapestry, Class Dojo or School360, which allows parents to see all of the objectives to be covered that week as soon as their child is asked to isolate. These will not be as fully resourced as they are during a phase of whole school remote learning, but school will be in contact with the families in question to make sure that they have the resources they need to carry out the work required. These resources will be provided either as attachments, links to video teaching or as physical paper packs so that the child isolating can continue to work on the same objectives as the rest of the class who remain in school.

The same messaging accounts will continue to be monitored in this case, and as with whole group remote learning, feedback will be provided, when it is possible, in response to work being messaged or uploaded to the teacher on a regular basis.
