Remote Education 2021/2022 (updated April 2022)

New Guidance for children - 3 days isolation and return on day 4 IF they are feeling well...

 

The Government narrative and expectation has changed around Covid: You don’t need to test anymore, and you should only be off school if you are unwell. It is no longer recommended for children and young to test for COVID-19 unless directed to by a health professional.

 

-Whilst the government are now not recommending testing for Covid, if you do test and get a positive result, you should isolate for 5 days as an adult and 3 days as a child. After this point, you then you finish isolation, without needing a negative test. Children can then return to school assuming they are well. 

 

-Children and young people who usually go to school, college or childcare and who live with someone who has a positive COVID-19 test result should continue to attend as normal.

 

 

The government is not expecting pupils or staff in schools to routinely test themselves for COVID-19.

 

REMEMBER: Tests aren’t available for free, and the school is not being given any more tests.

 

Remote Education

 

The 48 hour pack and work posted on Seesaw is for children who are unwell with COVID-19, and not for general illness. As ever, our ethos on this remains - “If you’re not well enough to be at school, you’re not well enough to work at home.”

 

The DFE says that when children are unable to attend school because they are complying with advice to isolate, they should have access to good quality remote learning. As a school we will work hard to provide remote education that is of a high quality and links as closely as possible with in-school provision content.

 

Your children will need to log on to Seesaw/Tapestry daily. They are also to have daily contact with their school year group similar to a registration really. This needs to be completed and uploaded by 9.30am each day. Click on the second yellow star below for more details.
