Tiered Learning in the event of COVID-19 absence

Tier 1: For children absent whilst awaiting a test result

 Tier 2: Self-isolation of a child or family following official notification of a positive result

OR when directed to self isolate by Track and Trace due to close contact with a confirmed case

OR in case of partial bubble closure where teachers are still teaching classes within school

OR longer period of self-isolation required following medical procedure

Children should;

1. Complete the weekly homework set for their class in the CGP book(s)

2. Read their AR reading book and take the related quiz

3. Practise weekly spellings using their Spelling Frame log on

4. Learn number bonds, multiplication and division facts using their Numbots and TTRockstars log on.

5. Additional reading books will also be provided within the child’s ZPD range.


access to the internet and electronic devices

If you as a family do not have enough devices to enable your child to access the internet because of siblings or you working from home then we may be able to provide a device for home use. The device will need to be returned to school following the period of self-isolation.

Where internet access is difficult we will be able to provide CGP books that cover much of the learning that we do in school in different subjects.

You may also be able to access a Government support package if you have a mobile phone account with limited data. We may also be able to support you in increasing your data allowance so that your phone can be used as a hotspot for a device borrowed from school.



Term 1:

Children should follow the same daily Maths lessons that are being taught in school. School will advise you which these are and where your child should begin. 

The White Rose Hub  ‘voiced videos’ - which the children have had experience of in school - will support this learning although it isn't, of course, the same as being in class. So they feel confident, we are suggesting that the first session they complete at home repeats the last session they participated in in school.  

Children should click on their year group and work through the lessons .

Question sheets will be provided by school for the weekly unit which can be picked up from school or posted to you on request. 

English - Reading and Writing

We are making use of the Oak National Government funded resources which provides video lessons.

When self-isolating, children should complete both the Reading and Writing units that are shown below - click on the Unit title and it will take you directly to the lesson resources.

 Tier 3: In case of full bubble (a Year group or class) closures

Provision will immediately follow that for Tier 1 and 2 (see above curriculum) with an element of additional daily contact from the class teacher and other staff.  


Tier 4: In case of local or national lockdown where school would be closed once again to all pupils other than those of key workers or those who are vulnerable.

Details of how we will operate in the event of National Lockdown will be made available if and when this occurs.  As yet the Government have not provided any detail as to what the expectations are should this occur. 

 Additional learning opportunities that were posted during lockdown are also available.
