Remote Learning at Mithian
Remote learning will be available for when individual children are in isolation due to members of their family being tested and awaiting results, when whole bubbles are in isolation due to their being a positive case or if the whole school has to be closed as instructed by Public Health England.
The best place for children to have access to the National Curriculum is in school, with the required resources, with professionals and staff who are trained. Children learn many things at home, however, no one is expecting parents/carers to take on the teaching role as it would be done in the classroom. I appreciate that parents have their own family circumstances which may not be conducive to supporting children with the National Curriculum. Any support that can be given is valued and appreciated.
No family must feel any pressure during these periods away from school, circumstances differ, however, we have a responsibility to provide learning opportunities for the children. We ask that you work with us to provide the best support for their learning in these challenging times. We would hope that learning at home would not be for more than 10 school days.
We are also aware that access to technology may be limited. The school has, and can provide, packs to collect if technology is an issue for some pupils.
