We know that remote learning is not the same as face to face learning in school and will endeavour to ensure all students can learn from home through remote access or by providing paper resources.
Our remote education provision has been written in accordance with the government guidance issued on 22 October and the temporary continuity direction. This is a legal requirement for schools to provide immediate remote learning for any individual or groups of students who are unable to attend school due to Covid-19, including having to isolate due to being identified as a close contact.
As far as possible we would mirror our school day during school closure and expect all students to attend morning registration and year assemblies. Virtual St Martin’s would include lessons that were live as well as time for students to work independently accessing learning resources via the google classroom.
Please visit the Home Learning page on our website for more information.
The information below is intended to provide clarity and transparency to students and parents or carers about what to expect from remote education if local restrictions require entire cohorts (or bubbles) to remain at home.
