When learning has to be done at home …
When children are required to be at home, and unable to attend school – the learning does not stop at St. Michael’s. Since October 2020, schools have been required by law to provide effective education to those children who are unable to access face to face teaching.
This information is intended to provide clarity and transparency to families about what to expect from us in relation to remote education – if restrictions require entire cohorts (or bubbles) to remain at home, or if individual children are self-isolating (see last section).
