We have now fully set up our Remote Learning Programme. We have put this in place and trained our team so that if children need to isolate and miss school, or if a bubble needs to close, children's education can continue. This applies to:
- A child (and their siblings if they are also attending GEMS WPA)is absent because they are awaiting test results and the household is required to self-isolate. The rest of their school bubble are attending school and being taught as normal.
- A child’s whole bubble is not permitted to attend school because they, or another member of their class, have tested positive for Covid-19.
If a whole bubble closes, you will be sent your child's Google Classroom login and teachers will run daily lessons (in submitted assignment form, pre-recorded videos and live lessons). We will also send suggested timetables and cover a range of subjects.
If a single child is isolating or a small number, teachers will still be in school teaching all day. Within 24 hours of a child being absent for a COVID-related reason (but the rest of the bubble remains open), you will be sent your child's Google Classroom login. Teachers will then upload daily content each day and children can submit this. We will utilise some of the programmes we use in school such as Purple Mash, Letter Join etc.
Nursery will use Evidence Me to set 'challenges' and play-based learning.
Please read all of the guidance shared so that if we have a worse case scenario, children do not miss out. We appreciate that if children are required to isolate, many parents will still need to work from home and we will try our best to ensure that tasks are not onerous and can be carried out as independently as possible.
Please read the setup guidance, policy and other documents to support you.
