Current options being considered for reopening are:
Your child will attend school for one session per week.
Your child will attend on a two-weekly rota of either
- Week A - 2 sessions in school, Week B - learning at home REPEAT
- Week A - learning at home, Week B - 2 sessions in school REPEAT
For both options the session(s) will be allocated on the availability of staff and accommodation.
Both these options equate to your child accessing face-to-face support on four occasions over the return to school period and are subject to change.
Distance learning will continue. All pupils will be expected to work at home when they are not in school.
Teachers will continue to set home learning activities.
Children who return to school will receive check-in/ catch-up/ prepare sessions in a small group and will mix with only those in their group.
You will not be penalised in any way if you choose for your child not to return to school.
