COVID-19 Self-Isolating Learning Information

As the country continues to battle the COVID-19 Coronavirus, we are aware that, while school is open, some parents have chosen to self-isolate their children because of medical conditions, meaning they are at higher risk.  Some are also self-isolating as they show the signs and symptoms of the virus (dry cough & a temperature).

Self-isolation means exactly that.  Staying in the home and as far away from people as is possible.  Further information can be found here.

We intend to do our best to minimise the inevitable loss of learning that self-isolation and absence from school creates.  So if you're choosing to keep your children at home, here's what we recommend:


  • Daily reading, writing & number in short bursts of no longer than 20 minutes.  A child's attention span is statistically their age plus 5 minutes maximum!
  • Keeping learning fun and relevant.
  • Keep a picture diary of what your child is learning.  We'd love to see what they are doing through Class Dojo!
