Remote education Contingency Plan
Outside of a national Lockdown, if restrictions to on-site education are required, the school will offer access to remote education, as soon as possible, for all pupils who are required to remain at home.
All remote learning will be delivered in line with the DFE’s Coronavirus Act 2020 Provision of Remote Education (England) Temporary Continuity Direction – This directive makes clear that schools have a legal duty to provide remote education for state-funded, school-age children unable to attend school due to coronavirus (COVID-19). It states:
Schools affected by the Remote Education Temporary Continuity Direction are still required to provide remote education to pupils covered by the direction where their attendance would be contrary to government guidance or legislation around coronavirus (COVID-19). This includes, for example, where such guidance means that a class, group or small number of pupils need to self-isolate or that clinically extremely vulnerable children are to shield. All such pupils not physically unwell should have access to remote education as soon as reasonably practicable, which may be the next school day.
