Remote Learning

In the event of a school closure, the school is committed to providing continuity of education to its students and will do so through a process of remote (online) learning. Extensive remote learning would apply particularly in a situation in which the school is closed for an extended period, but a high proportion of students and teachers are healthy, and able to work as normal from home.

We may also apply this policy in the event of short-term school closures (e.g. as a result of inclement weather, strike action). 

Remote learning may also be appropriate in situations when students, in agreement with the school, have a period of absence but are able to work at home, at least to some extent. This may apply in cases such as exclusion from school, or longer-term illness, assuming students are able to complete schoolwork at home.

Another relevant instance would be if, following an infectious disease outbreak, students are self-isolating at home but are not suffering with relevant symptoms.

There is no obligation for the school to provide continuity of education to students who absent themselves from school, with or without parental permission, in contravention to school or government guidance. This may apply, for example, if parents choose to take students on holiday during term time. Similarly, this would apply if parents made the decision, without prior agreement with the school, to absent their children from school ‘as a precaution’, against official guidance, in the event of an outbreak of infectious disease.

The Government has issued that for Secondary schools 5 hours of work should be set per day for school closures and pupils isolating.

With regard to any instance of the above, we would be in speedy, clear and consistent communication with relevant pupils, parents and/or carers throughout.
