Will my child receive school work whilst self-isolating?
If your child is self-isolating because they have symptoms, they will not receive work to complete at home. This is in line with any other type of illness.
If your child is self-isolating because they have been in contact with someone who has COVID-19, they will be provided work through the Seesaw App. If your child does not have technology to access Seesaw at home, please contact the school and we will arrange for paper work to be sent directly to your house.
If I am entitled to Pupil Premium Funding, will I be provided food if my child can not attend school because of COVID-19?
Yes, the school will provide food parcels for pupils who are eligible for Pupil Premium-related free school meals and who are not in attendance because they:
Have had symptoms or a positive test result themselves;
Are a close contact of someone who has coronavirus (COVID-19);
Are not attending as a result of local restrictions.
