Dickens Heath Community Primary School

Enabling every child to be the best version of themselves

Remote learning

In the uncertain time that we are currently living in, it is important that we are fully prepared for the possibility that we may have to have a full or partial closure of school depending on the local Covid-19 situation. 


Currently, we are all being advised to stay at home where possible to contain the spread of the virus and protect one another.  As a result, we have some children learning in school and some at home but we endeavour to ensure the same curriculum offer to all children.


There will also be instances where individual children will be self-isolating due to coming into contact with a positive case of Covid-19. 


As a school we are producing detailed plans which we call ‘Maintaining Education plans’ for remote education so that children will have access to a high quality education at home equivalent to the learning that they would receive within the classroom and linked to the intended, current learning.


The main sources of communication between the teacher and home when remote education is taking place will be Microsoft Teams and Class Dojo.


The school office team will support you in advising around remote education when you need to report your child’s absence from school if they are attending or if they are unable to access remote learning due to being unwell.  Please do not hesitate to contact the office or your child’s teacher for support/advice as required.


For further detail around our remote education offer and procedures please refer to the policy and plan below.
