COVID-19 and Home Learning
During this uncertain time, we understand that some children may be away from school for periods of time, either due to individual self-isolation or isolating within a class, year group or school. As such, we have created a GLA approach to managing these absences to ensure all children continue to receive a high quality education.
Our home learning approach depends on the specific circumstances of the child and their isolation. Details should be read in conjunction with the GLA Remote Learning Policy. Home learning will be managed through the Microsoft Teams platform. Each child has a personal Teams account and has the opportunity to practice navigating the learning platform at school. We are in the process of creating some simple guidance videos to help you access and move around in the site – they will be made available here very soon.
By allowing your child to partake in remote learning through the Microsoft Teams platform, you are agreeing to abide by the GLA Parents’ Acceptable Use Agreement. If you have any questions regarding this agreement, please contact Mr Moss by phoning the the main office. This Parents’ Agreement has been constructed alongside the children’s Acceptable Use Agreement, which has been completed by all pupils in school.
All GLA schools have reviewed our Remote Learning offer during the third national lockdown against the Department for Education Remote Learning Review. Our self-evaluation is available via the link here.
There are three tiers to home-learning which you need to be aware of:
This is when your child is needing to self-isolate due to:
- displaying COVID-19 symptoms,
- a member of their household displaying symptoms, or
- being advised to self-isolate by a relevant government body.
