Remote Learning

This section follows the guidelines published in the recent DfE publication: Providing Remote Education (January 2023)

'Attendance is essential for pupils to get the most out of their school experience, including for their attainment, wellbeing, and wider life chances. Remote education should not be viewed as an equal alternative to attendance in school. For this reason we expect schools to consider it only as a last resort when the alternative would be no education, and only after it has been established that the pupil is, or will be, absent from school. In such cases, remote education can have the benefit of allowing absent pupils to keep on track with their education and stay connected to their teachers and peers.' (Providing Remote Education, DfE)

Work will not be set for children who are on an unauthorised absence, such as a term time holiday.

Typical scenarios where remote education may be considered would include weather closures, utilities failure and pupils recovering from surgery.
