Home Learning

Make sure your child continues learning, even if they are at home!

 This year, the requirement for pupils to self-isolate (if they or a household member has displayed Co-Vid symptoms) will lead to some children needing to continue their learning at home. We do not want children to miss out on their learning. It is therefore vital that we provide remote learning via our website for all pupils to access, in the event that they need to self-isolate.

Please note, we do not expect children who are unwell to complete the learning that is posted online. However, if your child is at home, but is well enough to complete the learning, then we would expect them to do so.

All home learning should be done on paper or directly onto the computer. 

If you have any questions about the remote learning set, then please do not hesitate to speak to your child's class teacher. The easiest way to do this will be via their class email address. 

What to expect from St Thomas' 

As per the expectations outlined by the Secretary of State for Education, please find details regarding our remote education provision.

Additional support

In this section of the website, we have provided you with a number of useful links/ websites to support you with the implementation of home learning. 

Contingency plans

The aim of the following digital continuity plan is to ensure effective learning will continue regardless of any child or groups of children who unable to attend school. There are 4 main reasons in which this situation could arise:

  • an individual child needs to shield from school due to a significant health risk
  • an individual or small group of pupils are having to self-isolate for 10 or 14 days or whilst awaiting test results
  • a whole pod needs to work from home due to a positive case 
  • local lockdown or national lockdown restrictions require a larger number of children to undertake home learning.
