Our remote education provision is bespoke to the children of St Peter’s School.
It is based on the size of our Infant school, the age of our children
and the resources available to our school.
From 8th March 2021, all our classes have now returned to full-time education following the COVID-19 National Lockdown. Although we hope that the majority of our children will now have an uninterrupted experience, there is the possibility that an individual child, a class bubble, or indeed the whole school, will need to self-isolate for a period of time.
We have extensive plans for the provision of remote education where needed to ensure that the small number of children that may need to be educated at home, for example, due to shielding or self-isolation, are given the support they need to continue learning. We will continue to provide an ambitious and broad curriculum in all subjects. Remote education will be of a high quality and will align as closely as possible with in-school provision.
We are determined to keep all our pupils enthusiastic and engaged with their learning and make sure no one falls behind if they need to learn from home because of coronavirus. We also want to ensure that they feel safe and fully supported at this time.
We want to make sure every child can learn as much as possible at home, taking into consideration family circumstances as well. Our Remote Learning Offer outlines our expectations of what we would like each child to do while learning remotely, and how we plan to support children and their families to do this.
This meets the expectations set out in the DfE guidance ‘Remote Education Support’
Thank you all for the support and understanding that you have shown us. The decision to close a class or year group within school is never taken lightly and only after following the advice of Public Health England and the Local Authority.
