SCHOOL WORK DURING PERIODS OF SELF ISOLATION AND BUBBLE CLOSURE

If your child is unable to attend school due to self-isolating it is important that they carry on with school work. All children who are off but are otherwise well should access the Oak Academy for work relevant to their school year group. https://classroom.thenational.academy/

 

In the event of a bubble closing then work will be sent via email – work that is sent out in a bubble closure if mandatory and the work should be emailed back. We appreciate home education can be difficult so we ask that you have a go at all the work set. If you need assistance with the work or can’t get through it just email the ‘ask the teacher’ address and someone will contact you to assist. If you are unable to access on line work it is important that you speak to the school office, paper packs will always be available, there is no expectation that you print anything out. If you have no computer resources at home please speak to the Office or Miss Sharp for further assistance.
