Self-isolating children

If my child is not in school because they are self-isolating, how will their remote education differ from the approaches described on the previous page?


Where individual pupils need to self-isolate but the majority of their peer group remain in school, their remote learning will slightly differ from the approach for whole groups.


This is due to the challenges of teaching pupils both at home and school. 


Children self-isolating will still be taught a planned and well-sequenced curriculum with meaningful and ambitious work each day. They will also be provided with feedback to improve.


Self-isolating children will be set:

  • 3 hours a day (if in KS1)
  • 4 hours a day (if in KS2)
  • Reading/Phonics, Writing, Maths and a creative task related to the project their year group are studying (this could be History, Geography, Religious Education, Design and Technology, Art, Spanish or Music)
  • Work will be set through ClassDojo, or where the child has limited access the a device or internet, printed paper packs can be given


A member of staff will call and check in with the family each day. This can be to check on the wellbeing of the child and also address any misconceptions with learning.
